“Good quality deserves gold”

When it comes to the quality of their products, emporia Telecom aim for gold. That’s why they’ve produced three gold-look models for IFA. Says emporia proprietor Eveline Pupeter: “Good quality deserves this special edition.”

“Customer feedback on the quality of our products has been excellent,” says Eveline Pupeter, proprietor and CEO of Austria’s only mobile phone manufacturer, emporia Telecom. “The almost negligible number of complaints shows us that our quality is of the highest level.”

That’s why at emporia the consensus is “that this high quality deserves a gold medal and consequently a special edition.”

Three gold-look models are being presented especially for IFA:

The extra-tough emporiaCLASSIC. IP54 rating (protected from water spray), includes side buttons, optional emergency call function, 2 MP camera, extra-large and illuminated keys, desktop charger and LED torch.

The emporiaFLIPbasic, winner of a Stiftung Warentest award as recently as December 2016. This minimalist-style flip phone is the top seller from the emporia workshops (over half a million sold to date) and is aimed at people who only want to phone and send texts. With LED torch, desktop charger, emergency call function.

The upgraded and expanded emporiaFLIP follow-up model. Available from the end of October with the emporia twin cover.

In addition, the emporiaESSENTIAL (2G) and emporiaPRIME (3G), two easy-to-use models for the man and woman in the street with a 5 megapixel camera and a raft of extras including a calendar, radio, notes and torch, will be presented at this year’s IFA.

And last but not least, emporia is also presenting the low-cost classic keypad phone T211. This model is a simple dual SIM phone with a colour display for cost-conscious users. It features a simple camera, an alarm clock, a date display, an FM radio and Bluetooth. Two back covers (black and blue) are also included.

Last year emporia sold 600,000 mobile phones, a record number. Pupeter sees innovative drive, unbeatable value for money and top quality as the reasons for this success. “For our customers – who are predominantly seniors – a telephone is not a disposable product,” says Eveline Pupeter. “That’s why they expect high-quality products they can rely on for many years. We, more than almost any other manufacturer, can meet this requirement.”

At emporia, the customers play an active role, testing the products’ suitability for everyday use. The findings are then evaluated with the firm’s university partners with a view to transferring them directly into the phones’ development. Pupeter is convinced that “Only those who know exactly what their customers’ needs and expectations are will achieve long-term success.”

Fact box: In the last business year, emporia Telecom sold 600,000 mobile phones in Europe. The sales target for the current business year is 800,000 units. The Linz company has a workforce of 100.
