Heald, the largest manufacturer of quality security equipment in the UK, has announced a partnership with Singapore-based ESCO Pte Ltd as it continues its international growth.
The partnership will strengthen its position as a supplier of hostile vehicle mitigation solutions across Asia following installations including the Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant in Singapore.
The distributor agreement will grant exclusive authority to ESCO to market and sell the Heald Matador and Viper within Singapore and South East Asia countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia, enabling Heald to strengthen its customer support and product offering in the region.
With innovation at the core of Heald, they continue to bring to market unique, patent-protected products from bollards to road blockers. Heald’s bespoke designs are made to fit individual site requirements and meet the increasingly demanding needs of organisations that require high-security solutions against the threat of vehicular attack, in particular locations which require shallow or surface mount installs.
The Director of ESCO Pte Ltd, Sanjeev Bhat, has played a pivotal role in Singapore’s adoption of British security standards and measures having more than ten years of experience in the industry. Singapore has led the way in its commitment to hostile vehicle mitigation with other Asian countries following suit, making it one of the most active security markets in the world.
Debbie Heald MBE, Managing Director at Heald Ltd, commented: “We have been supplying to the SEA region for ten years, however, this collaboration will see the partnership with ESCO offer greater in-country support to our existing customers and also the promotion of our current range and new innovative hostile vehicle mitigation systems to these countries. These are growing regions with exciting opportunities and we are thrilled to be working with ESCO and our long term experienced partner, Sanjeev Bhat.”
Sanjeev Bhat, Director, Hostile Mitigation from ESCO Pte Ltd, commented: “ESCO is a solution-driven business where multiple products are combined to design a one-stop solution for the end user. Having Heald’s innovative and patented products under our offerings not only widens our product range, but also the range of applications. Our regional presence will facilitate Heald’s presence and position in the region. We are excited at the opportunity to bring Heald’s innovative product solutions to customers within Asia with enhanced technical and after-sales support.”
The partnership with ESCO follows on from the announcement in December that Heald has partnered with Germany based, truckBlok to bring Heald products to the country.
