Combined strength and single focus takes Honeywell to the next level

July 2003 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Mergers and acquisitions can create confusion in the marketplace and even the best of them may leave questions hanging in the air. The old and familiar has somehow undergone a metamorphosis - and the market is not sure what to make of the new 'animal'.

However, Chris Koetsier, Honeywell CCTV manager, has urged his customers and prospects to drop a 'wait and see approach' and check out what the bigger Honeywell CCTV has to offer. Says Koetsier: "I would urge all our clients to check out our combined offering and I guarantee you will be impressed. From entry level upwards the sky is the limit in terms of technology and innovation. Our offering includes low end products right through to the most complex systems and products surveillance technology and with total integration capability with other safety and security systems should this be required."

In addition, Koetsier adds that it is not only product and price that sets Honeywell CCTV apart. "First and foremost," he says, "we specialise. The bulk of our business is not something else with CCTV tacked on. Certainly we do sell boxes off the shelf for straightforward product orders but our business is much more that that. We are dedicated to CCTV and this means we attach great importance to technical expertise."

Honeywell is keen to point out that whilst the names of recent acquisitions, Ultrak and Betatech will now fall under the Honeywell banner this does not downplay what these organisations have "brought to the party". Ultrak, a global leader in the CCTV arena, has re-inforced Honeywell's position as a leading distributor and manufacturer of high quality CCTV products. Betatech, local manufacturer of Video Switching Matrices - now to be called 'VideoBlox' - is set to tackle the international markets with products locally produced here in South Africa.

Honeywell's CCTV Division, now boasting eight branches countrywide, offers a broad spectrum of CCTV products to industrial and domestic customers alike, providing solutions to any CCTV application. In brief, its product line-up includes a full spectrum of wellknown products including Honeywell, Ultrak, VCL, Diamond, Ademco, Betatech, Maxpro, Videowise.
