Ifsec 2008 Special
For those of you that could
not attend IFSEC this year, Kentec made a major
announcement at the show.
has recently founded a US subsidiary:
LLC, based in King of Prussia, near
Philadelphia. This has been brought about by
the purchase of most of the assets of Viking
Electronic Services. Viking Electronic Services
was a wholly owned subsidiary of Viking Corporation,
a major worldwide force in Sprinkler technology.
has been the control panel partner of choice
for Viking Electronic Services for several years
and this acquisition enables Kentec and it’s
customer to benefit from the market leading
IP technology developed by them. In addition
to the enhanced technology the merger of the
VES and Kentec development resources further
strengthens Kentec’s development capability
and provides considerable international opportunities
for expansion of Kentec’s sales.
customers will benefit in due course from both
the additional, in-house development resources
and from the incorporation of the core technology
developed by Viking Electronic Services. There
will be no changes in our UK or European strategy
or focus, or any adverse impact on our UK activities
or developments, indeed we expect them to be
strengthened as a direct result, as above.
