DURHAM, N.C., April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMRISE CORPORATION (OTCQB:EMRI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense and aerospace electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced that it has received an order for approximately $1 million in network access products to be installed in a telephone network operated by a public carrier in the Union of the Comoros. The Union of the Comoros is a small island nation located less than 200 miles off the East coast of Sub-Saharan Africa between the island of Madagascar and northern Mozambique.
The order was received by the Company's CXR-Anderson Jacobson (CXR-AJ) subsidiary based in France from a longstanding customer in French-speaking North Africa. The order is expected to be shipped to that customer in the second quarter of this year for installation in the public carrier's telephone network in the Union of the Comoros.
EMRISE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva said order activity for its communications products in Europe and French-speaking countries in North Africa is increasing, which is helping to drive the continued growth of the Company's communications equipment backlog in France.
"We are starting to see meaningful increases in demand for communications equipment in Europe and French-speaking countries in North Africa and elsewhere," Oliva said. "Because of our operations in France, our longstanding relationships with resellers and system integrators in French-speaking countries and our proven line of products, we believe we are well positioned to capture an increasing share of the growing demand for communications products in those areas of the world.
