International access control leader launches in South Africa

7 May 2014

Paxton has expanded into South Africa, bringing its smart network of security solutions to the country’s specifiers and installers.

The Paxton Group, which manufactures and exports to 50 countries around the world, is a market leader aiming to provide engineering excellence, creating simple yet intelligent and innovative products to meet the challenges and trends of the security industry. The company has a long-term strategy to help South African installers explore an existing gap in the security market.

Its signature Net2 access control system is designed to be easy to specify and install, making life simpler for installers. It integrates with leading CCTV, intruder and fire alarm providers, for ultimate flexibility, and also offers on-going software upgrades for life and no licence fees for additional workstations means the system is totally scalable.

Paxton South Africa will be headed-up by Dan Drayton, who has 18 years’ of experience in the security industry. His sales team will include Werner Geldenhuys and Riaan van der Merwe who have a wealth of experience specifying, installing and commissioning security systems. The business will have two major distribution partners. Reditron and Secequip provide security solutions throughout the country and will work with Paxton as it launches across South Africa.

Dan said: “It’s an exciting time for Paxton as we bring our international brand to South Africa. Paxton’s access control is competitively priced for the mass market, combining economy with industry-leading technology. This flexibility of our solutions allows installers to offer a scalable security solution, designed to suit any site requirement, from smaller 5-50 door systems to hundreds of doors with thousands of users. We believe this strategy of developing reliable, high-quality access control solutions, backed by industry-leading customer care and support, ensures installers and integrators are able to focus on business development and grow in an already significant market place.”

Paxton will introduce the product to installers with a series of commercial and technical training seminars taking place across the region throughout 2014.

The company invests significantly in the free training and education of its installers across the world to ensure its products are sold and installed with confidence.

The Certified Paxton Installer Programme is a one day access control workshop that covers both the commercial and technical elements of selling and installing access control.

Dan added: “The first step for us will be to host a number of free training seminars where installers can gain hands on experience of configuring a Paxton system and understanding how the product can complement existing security systems, such as CCTV. This programme will be key to how we engage with installers, ensuring we grow our network and demonstrate how our products and solutions can provide ultimate flexibility and complement existing security systems.”
