Beam Communications (BCC) has signed a partnership with Leisure-Tec Australia for the deployment of its ZOLEO communicator across its network.

Leisure-Tec is a major presence in the Australian caravan and camping industry and is part of the German manufacturer, Truma Gerätetechnik.

It created the myCOOLMAN brand of portable fridges and freezers and is the Australian representative for UK-based Milenco.

Last month Leisure-Tec launched a new online marketplace called Everythingcaravancamping to target Australia’s outdoor, caravan and camping market.

“As the representative to several international market-leading brands and companies in the RV and outdoor recreation sector, we are delighted to partner with Beam to have ZOLEO as part of our offering,” Leisure-Tec CEO Paul Widdis said.

“The ZOLEO offering sits well in our portfolio of innovative outdoor products that enrich the lives of our customers, and with more Australians choosing to holiday domestically as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the growth prospects for the outdoor, caravan and camping sector remain very strong.”

ZOLEO connects with phones and tablets to provide seamless global messaging that can work both in and out of mobile coverage zones. Users can message over satellite, cellular or wifi.

It also boasts SOS alerts which are monitored 24/7 and GPS locations that can be shared with others.

“We are excited to be able to work with an industry leader like Leisure-Tec, which has an extensive distribution network and presence in the domestic RV market,” Beam’s Vice President of ZOLEO Sales Peter Papas commented.

“The opportunity to showcase ZOLEO alongside other leading global brands will reinforce ZOLEO’s position as the industry standard when it comes to safety and communications.”

Beam was up 7.69 per cent on the market with shares trading at 42 cents at 2:41 pm AEDT.
