Andrew, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communications products and systems, has won the “Award for Best Service Teamwork” for the company’s—and its employees’—outstanding contributions in China during 2008 toward natural disaster relief and Olympic Games communications networking support.

The service teamwork award was granted to Andrew by the China Association of Communication Enterprises and presented at the 4th China Communication Network Operation and Maintenance Conference in Beijing. Andrew’s outstanding efforts in helping China restore wireless communications after huge snowstorms in South China and the devastating Sichuan earthquake were especially highlighted.

“This is a tremendous honor for our company and all the Andrew employees here in China and around the world,” said Jim Beckmann, general manager of Andrew’s Suzhou, China, facility, who accepted the award. “This is high acknowledgment of the outstanding and consistent performance of Andrew’s products that endured during both disasters, and the incredible efforts of our service teams in providing relief and post-disaster reconstruction following the snowstorms and earthquake. It also is representative and symbolic of the spirit and enthusiasm demonstrated every day by Andrew and CommScope people on behalf of our customers.”

Several South China provinces were struck in early 2008 by their most severe winter weather in 50 years, knocking several thousands of China Mobile base transceiver sites out of service. Andrew sent engineers to the worst-hit areas in Chenzhou, Hunan Province to assist China Mobile with technical instruction and manpower. Andrew’s engineers volunteered to assist with some of the most remote sites under extremely harsh conditions, which included travel by foot over mountains for a dozen hours every day while carrying heavy equipment. At the more than two dozen sites the team restored in Hunan Province, not a single Andrew antenna or cable needed to be repaired, despite the storms’ toppling of numerous cell towers.

Andrew also answered China Mobile’s request for support after the devastating Sichuan earthquake. Andrew quickly donated antenna and cable systems to assist in restoration of wireless communications services in the affected areas and to assist communications by rescue and recovery crews.

Andrew has long played a significant role in the Chinese market and recently provided solutions for numerous significant projects such as National Center for the Performing Arts, Beijing-Tianjin high speed railway, Beijing Subway, Ministry of Environmental Protection Building and Shanghai Metro. Andrew’s long history of providing advanced wireless infrastructure solutions in China began in the early 1970s and has led to its establishment of solid, long term cooperative relationships with the major Chinese operators and OEMs. The company’s two manufacturing and three research and development facilities in China provide extensive in-country capabilities for product design and production, a key factor in development of world-class products and on-time deliveries to Chinese customers.
