Came, a multinational company (Came BPT in South Africa) in the automation, control and security business in residential, public and urban environments, has acquired Özak, a Turkey-based company specialising in the production of turnstiles for pedestrian access control and bollards for urban vehicle control.

The Treviso, Italy based company, with headquarters in Dosson di Casier, employs approximately 1 500 staff members, has branches in 20 countries, and operates a distribution network in 118 countries across the globe. In 2018, it generated a turnover of 250 million euros. Came has completed a number of projects, including the perimeter protection and access control system for Expo Milan 2015, the parking solution implemented at Gatwick airport facilities in London, as well as systems for the protection of large urban spaces at the Promenade de la Croisette, Cannes.

Özak was founded in 1974 and is one of Turkey's biggest companies specialised in the production of turnstiles and bollards. It exports its products to over 80 countries around the world. 200 staff members operate in its Kocaeli-based headquarters and Ankara branch. It currently has over 52 000 vehicle and pedestrian control systems installed across the globe.

With the acquisition of Özak, CAME signals its goal of growth and consolidation in pedestrian and vehicle access control. President Andrea Menuzzo confirms how, "for years we have paid particular attention to the business of integrated solutions for urban planning, control management and public venue security. The group's strategy for growth by acquisition has always been oriented towards leveraging the potential of the acquired brands, providing them with the technological know-how and organisational capabilities of a group present all over the world, with a business model strongly geared towards internationalisation”.
