About Apex Radio Systems

Our main business lies in the hire and sale of high-quality two-way radios and associated communications equipment, including body-worn cameras.

Established in 1990, Apex has grown considerably and has three offices; our main HQ is based in Gateshead, where our Customer Service, Accounts, Admin, Sales, Marketing and Management Team work. We also have two additional sites: a large depot in Teesside for our Engineering Team and another southern depot in Cardiff, Wales, where some Sales, Admin and Engineering staff are based.

Apex provides two-way communications solutions across the whole business spectrum, and in the fast-moving world of today's business, two-way radio communications play a crucial role in people's safety and welfare.

From facility management to construction, education to hospitality, we cater to all areas’ needs and requirements. As well as working with local councils, police, CCTV and security, our ShopWatch and PubWatch schemes provide additional levels of security in local and regional shopping and hospitality areas.

  • We have used Apex Radio’s for our annual Victorian Fayre for many years. They enable us to keep in touch with the many volunteers we have on the streets during the event. They deliver and collect them at our convenience and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
