INTEGRATED Control Technology (Europe) Ltd has announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Brussels-based electronic security distributor, Harco HIS. 

From an ICT perspective, the partnership is another step in a strategic plan aimed at developing NZ-based security manufacturer ICT into a premier global supplier of access control solutions, and to meet increased demand for the industry leading ProtegeGX and WX platforms across the EMEA region.

The agreement will enable both companies to cater to the growing demand for truly integrated security systems incorporating access control, intrusion detection, CCTV, biometrics, perimeter detection, elevator control, offsite monitoring, and building automation, all from one easy to use scalable and modular solution.

"At Harco, we pride ourselves by offering a unique value proposition and we are now aiming to reach out to new markets and offer new product segments to our existing customers," says, Roger R. Ghostine, managing director of the Harco HIS Division.

"We are thrilled to partner with ICT," he continued. "I believe the market in our region is readier than ever for more powerful and reliable physical security solutions that integrate access control and automation from a single manufacturer. The ICT passion and dedication for innovation makes them the right fit for our portfolio."

"We look forward to working with a company of Harco’s reputation, and this partnership will help meet increased local demand for the industry leading Protege GX and WX platforms," added Ian Henderson, non-executive director of ICT Europe. 

"We believe Harco is uniquely positioned to further develop our existing customer base in the Middle East, and that with its market presence and sales and support network, we can make a real impact together."
