Security Products from Siemens has announced the completion of a process that has seen the transfer of its intruder detection business to Clonshaugh, Ireland. The move will strengthen its existing presence in the country in having its research and development, product management and customer service activities all centrally located. Previously, the detection side of the operation was located in Switzerland, while the Irish operation handled the intruder panels. However, in order to facilitate greater cohesiveness and maximise the use of existing knowledge and skills, a migration programme was initiated in early 2014.
With the integration of all the various skills and activities now completed, Peter Hawksworth, the company’s CEO, is confident that Security Products from Siemens is in a better position than ever to meet the demands of the diverse markets across Europe. He says: “The consolidation of our intruder detection operation will benefit all stakeholders and increase our effectiveness and efficiency both internally and externally. It is a move that makes perfect sense and we are delighted to be in a position where we can experience all the business benefits that being located in Ireland brings.”
