Review – 10 years i.safe MOBILE
i.safe MOBILE GmbH was founded in September 2011. From beginning, the innovative development, approval and marketing of mobile communication devices such as cell phones, smartphones, tablet PCs for the Ex area was top priority. The company headquarters, situated strategically central in Lauda-Königshofen, quickly grew into the R&D, marketing and sales center of the company. Through a long-standing, trusting joint venture with a well-known Chinese manufacturer, the devices are produced in Shenzhen/China in the highest quality and distributed worldwide via 72 partners. In July 2020, a branch office with service center was opened in Singapore, adding an important location to the global service network. Further expansion is planned, and a service center in Russia will start operations this year.
