Fortus is the largest privately owned technology distributor in the UK with more than 20 years’ experience selling specialised CCTV and security solutions into key B2B channels. This new partnership will offer an opportunity for Fortus to expand its reach into the Surveillance, Security and Pro AV markets.
Mark Massie, Commercial Director at Fortus UK, remarked: “We currently see a lot of convergence between the Security and Pro AV channels in the UK. Increasingly, our traditional security customers are seeking integration of surveillance products with commercial display solutions.
“Equally we know that sales of security and surveillance products are growing rapidly into the AV channel. Having a market leading display brand like Hisense in our portfolio has the potential to expand our sales and customer base significantly.”
Philip Davis, UK Sales Manager for Hisense, also commented on the Fortus partnership: “It’s great to share the ambitions of our Hisense distributor and working with Fortus in the UK and Ireland is exactly that. The company has grown significantly in the last 10 years during its successful partnerships with global brands such as Hikvision and Honeywell.
“Their recent expansion and appetite to enter the Pro AV market make them an excellent entry point for Hisense in the UK.
“The company infrastructure and extensive sales and support teams mean Fortus is genuinely able to add the value required to make Hisense a successful market leading commercial display brand in the UK.”
Hisense confirmed that its full line up of commercial display solutions will be available in the UK and Ireland from Q2 2021.
