Martin Dawber joins AceProx International from Blick to set up sales network.

August '99 News

AceProx International, the newly formed South African managed subsidiary of the Taiwanese SAHO access control systems manufacturing group, is determined to make its mark in the industry. Instrumental in this drive is Martin Dawber (formerly of Blick) who has joined AceProx as National Sales Manager.

Dawber has broad experience in the access control field, honed by hands-on involvement in projects such as ICC Durban, Mhlathuze Water, Man Truck and Bus and TSA Automotive Components, amongst others. Says AceProx International MD, Joe Maurel, "Martin's grounding as a sales engineer with Siemens telecommunications products led him to sales management of Control Instruments, with responsibility for time and attendance, access, parking and the development and support of a distribution network in KZN. He also headed up a technical and software support team.

"Martin continued in this role after CI was taken over by Blick in October '97. Happily his expertise and AceProx's need for a proactive marketer were able to combine under SAHO's global expansion strategy."

His mission? "I am totally committed to customer service," says Dawber. "There are three elements to success: an excellent product, a fair price and Service with a capital 'S'. South Africa needs a service culture and we at AceProx intend to promote that aspect first and foremost."

Adds Maurel, "AceProx is confident that with its multisolution approach, its expertise, its growing network of connections and its commitment to service, it is poised to capture market share in a favourable environment."
