Kentec… big over here, and now over there too!

Kentec Electronics Ltd, the UK’s leading independent manufacturer of fire detection and alarm control panels, has announced its purchase of substantially all the assets of leading American fire alarm and detection company Viking Electronic Services and the creation of VES LLC – a wholly owned US subsidiary of Kentec Electronics Ltd.

Kentec Managing Director Ray King comments; ‘I am really excited by this fantastic new opportunity that will both guarantee the continuity of the business and significantly broaden Kentec’s range of products and services available to the fire alarm and detection market’.

“Kentec has been working closely with Viking Electronic Services for over 6 years in the development of the eLAN™ fire alarm system. When matched with Kentec’s comprehensive range of conventional, analogue addressable fire detection and extinguishing releasing panels this acquisition provides many new opportunities and synergies. By combining our engineering and development resources, we now have the ability to give dealers and customers more innovative new products, faster. And, we will be able to market the eLAN™ fire alarm system with its UL listings and FM approvals to other world markets.”
