Hills Ltd has acquired Open Platform Systems and in the process become the exclusive distributor of Genetec’s unified IP security solutions.       

The acquisition extends the reach of Genetec solutions into a much broader portfolio of clients in that market. Hills will distribute the full range of Genetec products in the Australia and New Zealand markets 

“We’re excited by the recent acquisition of OPS by Hills as it will help to further build upon the already strong market position developed for Genetec by the OPS team in that region,” said Guy Chenard, vice president of global sales at Genetec. 

“Growing the Genetec footprint in the APAC market is strategic for our business and we are looking to partners like Hills to help us maintain and further drive our growth in this region.”

The exclusive rights of distribution of Genetec products will transfer to Hills immediately, with current customers and partners of OPS seeing minimal change in their day-to-day contacts and on-going projects.

“Hills has an enviable reputation as a leader in Australia’s technology market with a powerful span of product and service offerings through a range of business units,” stated Kobi ben-Shabat, managing director at Open Platform Systems. 

“Choosing to join forces with a company like Hills Limited, which has an outstanding track-record of pre and post-sales support, as well as a broad reach into the homes, businesses and enterprises of Australia, just made sense for OPS and our partners.”
