Hills and Genetec teams at the awards presentation.

GENETEC has named Hills its Asia Pacific Distributor of the Year for 2018 – the 4th consecutive year Hills has won the award – highlighting Hills’ strong performance as the biggest building technology distributor in ANZ.

Headquartered in Montréal, Canada, Genetec is distributed exclusively in ANZ by Hills and is represented in over 80 countries worldwide by a network of resellers, certified channel partners and distributors. The company is well known in the ANZ market for its market leading solutions such as Genetec Security Center, Synergis (Access Control) and AutoVu automatic licence plate recognition.

Hills CEO and Managing Director, David Lenz, said receiving the award for the 4th consecutive year was a significant achievement for Hills and reflected the company’s investment in the Genetec portfolio across ANZ.

“Working with our key systems integrators, we’ve seen Genetec achieve solid success over the past 12 months, validating the business development work that has been undertaken in industry verticals including government, infrastructure, transportation, law enforcement, stadiums and major commercial projects,” Lenz said.

“We’re pleased to be recognised for our strong performance once again,” he said. “We’ve focused on supporting our partners by providing strong pre-sales capabilities so they can deliver purpose-built solutions. Market leading technology from Genetec aligned with key system integrators supported by Hills’ local expertise is a winning combination.”
