Stanley Security Solutions exits Australian market.

ACCORDING to reports from former staff, integrator Stanley Security Solutions has exited the Australian security market.

The move poses questions for Stanley’s customers, as well as extending opportunities to other integrators – Stanley had a strong client list which included customers like Westmead Hospital, as well as councils and major government and commercial organisations around Australia.

According to reports, all current projects will be fully commissioned and completed in-line with existing contracts, though this process is likely to be challenging, given it may be managed by remote control and must be undertaken by local contractors.

Stanley Security Solutions, a division of Stanley Black and Decker, has a history that goes back 50 years and globally offers a comprehensive range of services and solutions, with a focus on integration and installation, design and service, as well as monitoring.

The company’s business model is built around notions of global resources, with a local touch – the company’s client list suggests this model had merit, while its exit from the Australian market underlines the competitive nature of security integration.

Successful security integrators generally have diffuse business models revolving around building services and automation, not only electronic security solutions.
