The Zenitel Group
Zenitel has firmly established itself at the intersection of two domains - critical communication on the one hand, security and safety on the other. The most basic, yet profound, need for any organization is clear communication. We define the term “critical” as any situation where the need to hear, be heard, and be understood, is paramount.
Zenitel is focused on the Secure Communication Systems (SCS) activity that develops and sells our own Intercom and Public Address Systems. We also deliver 2-way Radio Systems and are one of the few companies in our markets that can deliver fully integrated Communication Platforms that include Intercom, Public Address and 2-way Radio Systems.
Zenitel has a strong presence in both the onshore and offshore secure communications market through its global brand, Vingtor-Stentofon. The brand is recognized globally for offering advanced offshore and onshore communication systems. Vingtor-Stentofon provides integrated security communications for environments where life, property and assets are at stake.
Our systems interface with other security devices including CCTV, access control and alarm for a comprehensive security solution. Vingtor-Stentofon’s primary system offering is within Public Address, Intercom and Radio. The key markets include: Building Security Public Safety, Transportation, Industrial, Oil Gas and Maritime.
Zenitel is listed on the Euronext stock exchange in Brussels, with its statutory headquarter situated in Belgium. Zenitel’s operational headquarter is in Norway.

Quality Assurance in compliance with the ISO9001:2008 standard is a requirement throughout the Zenitel organization which is audited by independent accreditation organizations. In 2009, Zenitel Norway passed the ISO and ATEX recertification complying with equipment used in explosive environments. In addition, Zenitel Denmark received the Security Quality Systems (SKS) certification that is a requirement for companies carrying out high voltage installations and repairs.
When 'standard communication' systems fail, especially during emergencies or at critical moments, Zenitel’s solutions and systems stand above all others. It’s in those moments, when life is at stake, that proven, reliable communication systems are vital. This is Zenitel’s most significant contribution - to ensure a safe and secure social environment by enabling its customers to protect life, property and assets.
Globally, Zenitel supports several charities, including contributions to the Norwegian Cancer Society, UNICEF and the Red Cross.
The well-being of all employees is highly important to Zenitel’s success and growth. Zenitel recognizes this and strives to provide a congenial, stimulating, and supportive working environment.
