The Dove Story

Since 2002 dove communications have been leaders in the field of two-way radio.

Kevin Dove started in his Hamilton garage as a Radio Rentals business.

In 2008 Dove Communications became a Tait and Hytera Authorised Radio Dealer.

In 2018 the Auckland Office opened to support the NZTA Waterview Tunnel project.

2021 saw the acquisition of RT Taranaki creating our third branch.

2023 saw Kevin retire and the General Manager Mike Read take over the reins.

We’re local

With three regional offices we support our customers at home and when they travel.  Each office has technical, sales and administrative staff enabling us to provide outstanding local service.  Across our branches we have a fantastic collection of skills and experience and move our staff around to support our customers with the services they need.
