Motorola is a global leader in software-energized wireless communications, semiconductors, and advanced electronic systems and services. Motorola creates cellular telephone, two-way radio, paging, data and satellite communications systems and products that enable people to take their worlds with them. Motorola's embedded semiconductors are essential digital building blocks for consumer, networking and computing, transportation and wireless communications markets. Other businesses include automotive electronics, components, computing and energy products. Sales in 1997 were $29.8 billion.
In January 1994, Motorola registered a Representative Office which has grown to 20 employees. Since then, we have developed a nationwide distribution network to supply our many Ukrainian customers with our market leading products.
These products include satellite pagers and phones, which will be available once Iridium begins service on November 1, 1998. The realization of the project, conceived by Motorola over ten years ago, underscores Motorola's continued leadership role in wireless telecommunications.
Other market leading products in Ukraine include: microprocessors such as the PowerPC; digital cellular phones such as the popular StarTac, the new d520, and the dual band cd920; and Flex pagers, recognized as the de facto global standard in paging today.
