WITH a view to providing existing and potential Bosch customers increased access to their products, Bosch Security Systems has partnered with 2 new distributors to further strengthen its national distribution network.

POPES Electrical & Data Supplies will service the ACT with branches in Fyshwick, Mitchell and Phillip. Bosch video and intrusion products will complement POPES existing portfolio of data, communications, AV, cable and accessories. 

“At POPES Electrical & Data Supplies we are focused on providing not just the best products, but the best solutions,” said Ray Whaling, manager of the Fyshwick branch. “We see our partnership with Bosch Security Systems as filling these criteria and we are very excited to be its preferred distributor in the ACT.”

Next comes the long-awaited Bosch presence in Tasmania, with the appointment of Active Electronics, which will be distributing Bosch video and intrusion products from branches in Hobart and Launceston. 

“We are very excited at the opportunities afforded by this new partnership with Bosch Security Systems Australia,” said Daniel Guinan, manager of Active Electronics.

“Our focus on contemporary technology, quality products and expert advice complements Bosch Security Systems’ own philosophy, making this a mutually beneficial relationship. It will also provide our customers with yet another premium brand through its line of outstanding and innovative products, with extensive commercial and domestic applications to meet the growing demands of the Tasmanian market.”

With the addition of these 5 branches across 2 key states where Bosch has never been represented, Bosch distribution manager Shaun Watson is excited about the future. 

“With the imminent release of the new Bosch plug-and-play NVR with QR app connectivity, and the cloud-based app for the Solution 2000/3000 alarm panels due before the end of the year, the timing of both these distributors coming on board could not be better,” said Watson. “We welcome POPES and Active to our team and look forward to rewarding and long-lasting partnerships.” ♦
