Edition 73 October 2012


Events updates Security Essen and Fim-Expo

At the end of September, Kentec exhibited at Security Essen in Germany for the first time. On display was the the European preview of Taktis and Virtual Resource which were extremely popular. We also showed our range of Marine products, along with our Extinguishant range of panels and Power Supplies. If you were unable to attend and would like some more information about these products please contact Lee Maher.


October showed the launch of a new concept industry event FIM-Expo. The event was organised and managed by many of the UK's leading Fire Industry Manufacturers and along with Kentec there were 20 other exhibitors. This regional event which was held in the North of England was designed to combine a product show case, networking opportunities and hospitality and was appreciated by all visitors that attended.
