All change at Tele Radio UK
About Tele Radio Group
Founded in Lysekil, Sweden in 1955, now headquartered in Gothenburg, with twenty-two subsidiary companies in Europe, the Americas and in Asia.
Being a Swedish company, safety is part of our essence. Therefore, we make sure our products meet the highest possible safety standards, and we have the certificates to back that claim up.
Our products are not only safe, but they are also robust and can take a beating. We know that our remote controls get thrown around, dropped, run over, get wet – and that is all fine, we had it in mind when designing them. They are meant to be used.

Radio control of agricultural machinery helps to increase productivity and contributes to high-quality yields. Field work becomes more ergonomic and comfortable, and the user has a better view of the machinery. Remote control also allows you to protect yourself from adverse weather conditions without losing range. Our products allow safe control of machinery such as balers, combine harvesters, seeders, spreaders, or sprayers. Tele Radio products will also work well in greenhouses, orchards, and gardens by reducing or eliminating operator exposure to harmful substances during operation, saving time and costs, and contributing to environmental protection through more efficient use of machines, regardless of the size of the farm.
Why remote control
A wireless remote control is a safety and convenience-centric system for controlling a piece of machinery. It places the operator exactly where they need to be instead of the natural constraints of a control panel or wired control. A wireless control is also not in the operator’s way like a cable bound system would be. The cable is both impending for the work and a safety hazard, a trip hazard and susceptible to damage.
