Bewator Acquisition

by msecadm4921

Access control and CCTV manufacturer Bewator has acquired all shares of the privately owned Antech group (Antech A/S and Antech Scandinavia AB).

Founded in 1988 and with headquarters in Brøndby, Copenhagen, Antech distributes video security products in Scandinavia and has 17 employees.

Bewator says it continues to strengthen its market position in access security solutions in the Nordic region. Bo Kastensson, Group Chief Executive of Bewator said: "Bewator is committed to delivering the best security solutions and services to end-users via its market leading network of partners and installers. Antech will further strengthen Bewator’s CCTV  knowledge and presence in Scandinavia, whilst also benefiting from Bewator’s large customer base and expertise in integrated systems.
"The acquisition of Antech will also help strengthen Bewator’s in-house competences in thedesign and supply of total security solutions in Scandinavia,’ said Bo Kastensson,
Antech’s expertise in network and IP CCTV solutions complements Bewator’s strategy to deliver open, modular security systems, such as the integration of the Bewator 2010 system with the Eventys digital video management system. The combination of both companies’ expertise will also provide a strong platform for integrated access control and video security over IP, and paves the way for effective integration between security systems in access control, alarm systems and video control – areas where Bewator has a recognised market-leading position."
"Antech has developed positively through the years and can now enjoy a faster growth as part of an internationally recognised leading security group. With the addition of Bewator’s development resources and international network, we will be able to benefit from a leading position in Sweden and the UK, as well as a strong position in the other Nordic countries and European markets," said Michael Anthonsen, Managing Director of Antech A/S. "Antech has successfully developed a market-leading position in the distribution of video security products, which we had identified as an area for growth in Scandinavia. Bewator’s solid international growth has enabled us to seize the opportunity to combine our offering with that of Antech to provide the strongest possible business base in our home market."

Bewator also announced that it has divested its Business Area Parking (Cale Access AB) to Swedish Mellby Gård Industri AB, that is also part owner of Bewator Group. Bewator says this underlines its strategy to focus on its core business of access and video control.
