The History of Takta Electronic Research and Production Co.


“Takta” was born when Tehran was expanding from its previous borders in the early 70s, in a period when many European companies were competing to take an advantage of the situation. One of these companies was the French company, Thomson Broadcast, which built a workshop in the north borders of the city in partnership with the National Iranian Radio and Television (NIRT).

The foundation stone of this structure was laid in 1975, and it took three years for the building of this beautiful installation to be ready for operation. Its vast building shines in the field of Vanak region in Tehran until today.

“Takta” electronic equipment research and production workshop was put into operation in 1978 in production line of radio and television transmitters, from A to Z of printed circuit boards with over a thousand productive processes and the production of all kinds of antennas which is unique in its kind in Middle East.

In addition to telecommunication products, in line with the development of the scope of investigation in workshop, Takta became a place for telecommunication engineering students to pass practical courses and a playground for training Iran’s future assets. Iranian engineers had received the necessary training from their French counterparts when the Islamic Revolution took place in 1979.

Like many other companies, the Research and Production Workshop of Takta Electronic Devices stopped working in the midst of the revolution. After the country’s turmoil, Takta resumed its activities under the management of Mr. Aarabi P.E, in the companion of the sub-group of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting Organization and began to design and produce radio and television equipment and transmitters.

In this period, Takta is running in the field of telecommunications transmitters in the domestic and foreign markets more powerful than the past.

With the expansion of Takta’s activities in the late 80s, many antenna manufacturers turned to this company to obtain quality control certificates and sales permits. In the late 1980s, the number of Internet users in Iran grew.

In order to cover users’ needs, Takta Company continued its activities as one of the leading companies in the field of developing Internet platform and providing direct Internet access to users. After this period, the activities of Takta moved into continuous mass production.

In this period, Takta started producing TV sets and set-top box devices. In the next stage, Takta proceeded a step further to design and manufacture low-power and medium-power transmitters to high-power transmitters. The technology level changed from analog to digital all over the country and Takta undertook this mission.

In the mid-90s, Takta began to produce other related equipment in this field, along with radio and television transmitter equipment, with the aim of diversifying its current product portfolio. After this period, Takta left the sub-category of IRIB’s technical deputy and joined IRIB’s virtual deputy. This incident led to the creation of content production infrastructure and the birth of “Telewebion” website in a new phase.

Telewebion is the first Iranian television network to broadcast live and archive of IRIB channels, free of charge, at your fingertips. On this platform, users can access audio and television archives of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting Organization.

“Antenna Center” is another Takta branch located in Alborz province. This center was designed as the first and most potent antenna test center in the Middle East in the 1970s by Scientific-Atlanta, Inc., and built with exceptional standards for antenna test centers.
