The Company was founded over 50 years ago under the logo
GdN (Galleria delle Novità), at the same time specializing in
the importation of electronic goods from the Far East.
By a careful selection of items, dependable after-sales service,
multilingual public relations and written manuals as well as
multi-lingual translations (in Switzerland French, German and
Italian are spoken), the Company met a rapid success.
In 1972, the Company had 180 collaborators concentrated
mainly on marketing devices in the audio/video sector. Later,
the Company extended its activity to Communications and
On account of the ever increasing lines of interest in our
clients network it was decided in 1986 to restructure the
Company GdN for the purpose of creating a specialized
Company in the telecommunications field.
Hotline International SA is specialized in the Communications
and Telephony branches, digital imaging and multimedia.
Hotline International SA is managed by Mr Gianfranco
Maciocci, a graduated electronic engineer, who speaks several
languages (Italian, French, German, English, Spanish and
Portuguese), former Manager of SOMMERKAMP ELECTRONIC
SA, at the same time the sole agent for the European market
of VERTEX STANDARD Co. Ltd.,Tokyo, famous manufacturer of

Immediately, the company structure strengthened by the
hiring of Mr Kato Masayuki, a Japanese citizen, graduated
electronic engineer with a long term technical experience in
the YAESU sales range.

modern service laboratory (e.g.Tektroniks spectrum analyzers,
