History

During the 17 years of its operation the company has constantly developed and improved. In the first years after its founding in 1994 the company mainly focused on vehicle marking and installation of imported security systems. In 1996, our ongoing experience, enterprise and vision of a safe world were the main arguments in favour of starting manufacturing our own security system.

The company’s 17 years of operation in car electronics have provided a huge experience which it now uses for introducing the newest generation systems for vehicles. Operation within the whole cycle, from product idea to prototype development to manufacturing, installation and communication with the product’s end-users, allows us to gain priceless knowledge about the product’s conformity to each of these phases, as well as a direct product evaluation from its users.

When in 1997 the company launched its own manufacturing facility, its founders could not even imagine how important its current experience in vehicle electronics will prove to be. After seven years of intense product development, manufacturing and distribution in Latvia, in 2004 export of Skybrake products was started to EU and CIS states. Thanks to the well-done “homework”, the Skybrake systems fast gained recognition beyond Latvian borders.

A few years later, following a business partner recommendation, the company started to offer modified Skybrake systems for specific partners and their market specificity. From this moment on, the company also offers OEM solutions. Skybrake develops OEM solutions for companies from varying sectors and various countries, like Great Britain, Russia and Spain.

Our experience, relationships with partners and their appreciation allows us to encourage you: Come to the wireless world! Come to it with Skybrake!
