KTR Electronics Pty Ltd was founded in 1968 to provide specialised services to the Electronics Industry, specialising in Security and Healthcare. After a long collaboration with GT Jones Communications we combined forces and formed the KTR Group. In 2008 we celebrated our 40th Birthday, and we are proud of our long history of stability and commitment to our industry.

Today our market verticals encompass a larger, but specific target, allowing KTR to be the “one stop shop” for Security and Healthcare. With verticals in Nurse Call, Nurse Call Reporting, Security, Access Control, Messaging, DECT, WiFi, Aged Care, CCTV and Public Address we are able to provide products and services that meet all your requirements – a single solution.

KTR Group is an active member of the National Electrical Communication Association (NECA), Institute of Hospital Engineers Association (IHEA) and Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL), ensuring that we are up to date with industry information, support and resources.

We maintain our own quality management system which is backed by NECA and meets all legislative requirements; this also supports our Environment, Site Safety, Tool Box and OH&S Managements Systems and Plans. So you know you are getting quality service from start to finish.

KTR Group is an ethical company and we pride ourselves on our commitment to the industry on a long term sustainable path. Our name is our commitment to deliver quality product and service and this has seen us grow and sustain a successful, recognised and respected company. As a result we continue to offer you security now and in the future.
