"We want to be the partner of choice for security dealers and installers throughout Europe," says Ben Cornett, president of Honeywell Security.

ADI International will answer these needs by allowing customers easy access to a wide range of products throughout Europe, with enhanced delivery service and outstanding support."

ADI International is already a successful distributor in North America. According to Tom Polson, president of ADI International, "ADI International offers customers its own unique blend of convenience and service. We also offer a wide choice of products from hundreds of security manufacturers, providing a one stop shopping solution."

Michael Flink will lead ADI International operations in Europe from its headquarters in Purmerend, The Netherlands. Flink was formerly vice president of marketing and operations for ADI International in North America.
