Spin-off of Sagem’s former mobile activity, MobiWire SAS has proven its position as ODM in the constantly evolving mobile phone environment

Paris, July 20th, 2012.

It’s been almost a year after its creation and MobiWire SAS has firmly confirmed its capacity to design and deliver connected devices, such as mobile phones and transaction processing terminals, as a genuine start-up-like company. European retailers and major actors of the mobile payment industry are its current customers and Mobile Network Operators (MNO) have gradually considered partnership with the latter.


MobiWire SAS has demonstrated its ability to position itself as an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) among other constantly growing Asian players, with a clear focus on quality and flexibility. The enriched experience of the team is based on strong history.
“We have been working for more than 15 years with the MobiWire SAS team and they have my entire trust. A company is primarly a human experience and when we had the chance to take part in the creation of MobiWire SAS, we did it with no hesitation; the same way we did it in 2003 during the JV with Sagem and then in 2009 when we created Sagetel Mobiles”, said M. Xu, founder of Bird-Sagetel Group.


Launched in July 2011, MobiWire SAS has indeed joined its historical partner, Chinese manufacturer Bird-Sagetel and started up the commercialization of tailor-made terminals with its head-quarter in Nanterre (Paris, France) headed by Bruno Mortreux, Chief Executive Officer, former VP Products Strategy & Management at Sagem Wireless.


With a dual market approach, MobiWire SAS develops a core business based on volume handsets and selected business verticals. “MobiWire will announce its first main MNO customers in the coming weeks”, Mortreux said. “Next to that, the launch of the second generation of transaction processing and POS management terminal will be announced for the last quarter this year. To top this news, MobiWire will be launching a range of smartphones under its own brand very soon.”
