AESIF News - 12-15 May, NEC Birmingham : looking at gate automation & accsess control entry

12-15 May, NEC Birmingham : looking at gate automation & accsess control entry - 13 May 2008

With over 800 exhibiting companies, eight product areas, the most topical and up-to-date conference and seminar content and numerous networking opportunities, IFSEC remains the place for the security and automatic electric gate industry to do business.

Talking with Peter Hill Sales Manager, on the Videx stand this year it was good to catch up on their products, and to see the new developments with regards to the GSM intercom system, which I am led to believe is to be launched in September 08.

The system will be available in a variety of finishes and options. It was also nice to meet up and chat with John Harling and Son Greg of Vale Automation on the Videx show stand,  John is an “AESIF Member and Approved AESIF Part P Assessor” and are electric gate installers in the nottinghamshire area, for thoses of you looking for certification. Videx are also AESIF Approved Distributors. Both members can of course be found in the AESIF web site’s "Business Directory" for more information.

The Fadini & Bpt stand has some interesting product on display, and speaking with Paul Dobson “Fadini Sales Manager”, I have asked him for  further information in regards to their door access control side, and he hopes to send AESIF an article and editorial on their latest door entry systems. So looking forward to this.

Calling in to see Dean Kernot Manager on the Comelit communications stand this year, and I am pleased to say that the company have now intimated their intention to join AESIF as distributors, this is good news.

Dean has always made time for me on the Comelit stand, and made me feel most welcome.  I would like to think that as an AESIF member we can give the same respect and support in return.

Urmit Group, comprising of Managing Director Maji Gami, Sales & Marketing Director Mark Hagger, Technical Director Tony Carpenter, these business people are really special to me, and this years iFSEC stand looks brill. Its plain to see that the three sides of this company Urmet Domus, FDI, Aprimatic, have really pulled together, to make a strong market player within our industry.

 I believe that this company is going to be one of those dark horses that is going to make major inroads against the competition, and are really focused on delivering harmonised products to the market place. These are driven by specialist sales and technical support teams, capable of delivering a tailor made system to meet the specific needs of their clients and installers.

It goes with out saying the Urmit group is of course an AESIF member and approved distributor, of automation and access control systems. I thank them  for their support for AESIF, and the time spent on the stand speaking with Maji Gami and hope that the event provides fruitful enquiries, for all their hard work, time, and efforts.

FAAC was also exhibiting automation at iFSEC this year and I spoke with  both Managing Director Will Walker and Keith Lessiter Sales Manager on the show stand, it's always interesting to meet up at iFSEC and exchange view and topics concerning our industry, "wishing them the best" from all the AESIF members that continue to purchase there products.
