Two of the security industry’s most well established names have teamed up, determined to take client service to the next level by making high-end products more easily available.
Elvey Security Technologies, which opened its doors in 1946, and Bosch Security Systems, established in 1886, have long been leaders in their respective fields.
Since its inception, Elvey has met the evolving needs of a growing customer base in terms of sourcing and distributing world-class security products throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Bosch is known for its wide range of products that combine cutting-edge technological innovation with reliability and quality.
Identifying a common purpose, namely to provide a unique blend of area expertise and exceptional service to clients, the two powerful brands have entered into a synergistic relationship that will see Elvey branches throughout South Africa stock Bosch’s extensive range of security products.
Accordingly, installers, system integrators and specifiers will have easier-than-ever access to Bosch products, which will in turn enable them to improve their output levels.
Bosch products available through Elvey include a wide range of domes, flexidomes, autodomes, IR (infrared) cameras, and digital hybrid and IP (internet protocol) network recorders.
According to Ingo Mutinelli, national sales manager for Elvey Security Technologies, Bosch has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Pentagon, one of Elvey’s divisions. This, he notes, is evidenced by multiple joint ventures between the two over the years including the securing of the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane for the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup. Pentagon supplied 150 Bosch IP cameras and 91 Bosch IP high speed dome cameras in a system where the core focus is on public safety.
“That same quality and reliability is now available at Elvey branches,” he says, adding that the addition of Bosch’s products to Elvey’s CCTV (closed circuit television) range illustrates their commitment to providing customers with tailor-made security solutions using state-of-the-art equipment.
