ICT Opens Big New Facility in Auckland
NEW Zealand-based electronic security manufacturer, ICT celebrated the grand opening of a new purpose-built premises in Rosedale recently, with more than 150 guests, including many of the customers, integrators, suppliers and staff that have been instrumental in the phenomenal growth behind this latest expansion.
“Innovation doesn’t stand still, and with an unwavering commitment to research and development, ICT will continue to grow, said ICT CEO, Hayden Burr. “The new facilities include a 2-level 720sqm office, 495sqm of manufacturing space and more than 450sqm of warehouse and canopy coverage. With an additional 1425sqm of the site earmarked for future office and warehouse development, we are already talking about further expansion. Given the way things are currently growing, that may not be so far in the future.”
According to Burr, ICT’s success has always been about people, so it came as no surprise that the event kicked off with a range of fun filled games and activities – including a bouncy castle, face painting, and foosball – to cater for even the youngest guests, or that a number of guests didn’t hesitate in travelling a considerable distance (some coming from Australia and Canada) to join the celebrations and demonstrate their support.
The official festivities and ribbon cutting ceremony were introduced by business mentor and MC, Peter White, with speeches from CEO Hayden Burr and special guests Chris Lock (strategic advisor for ATEED’s Operational Strategy and Planning department) and Chris Darby (councillor for Auckland’s North Shore Ward and Auckland Council’s Urban Design Champion).
ICT is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, with a global presence and an international reach. A network of distributors and certified integrators provides full local sales, support and service to clients and partners around the world, including a significant presence in the United States. ♦
