Scottish Sale

by msecadm4921

Scottish Communication Systems (SCS), the Perth-based security installer, has sold its Business Communications Division to Ogilvie Communications Ltd for an undisclosed sum.

Stirling-based Ogilvie Communications, which is part of the Ogilvie Group, installs business telephone systems. SCS reports it moved to sell its Business Communication Division deal so as to concentrate on growing its security sector. Earlier this year SCS sold its mobile telephone division to Perth-based Hurricane Energy.

What they say

“The move allows us to fully focus on the growth of our Security Division, which has now grown into one of the leading security companies in Scotland, specialising in CCTV, Access Control, Intruder Alarms, two way radio systems and Paging Systems,” said Paul Gibson, Scottish Communication Systems managing director.

“We see this as a natural progression for Scottish Communication Systems, enabling us to concentrate on our core strengths.”

Recently SCS won a £400,000 security contract in the Forth Valley area to supply and install a centralised, digital CCTV control suite in Alloa, and several other contracts are ongoing, the firm adds.

“Ogilvie Communications is a long established company with an unrivalled reputation for quality and service and we are delighted to have reached this agreement with them,” said Mr Gibson.

Ogilvie will now take over responsibility for the maintenance and sales support of all of SCS’s former contract customers. The company is a Samsung dealer.
