Dahua opens Leeds office

by Mark Rowe

Dahua Technology is opening a new office in Leeds. This is the first time that Dahua – the world’s second-largest video surveillance product manufacturer – has expanded in the UK beyond its offices in Maidenhead, Berkshire. The new northern office will be at the White Rose Office Park in Millshaw Park Lane, pictured, around four miles south of the city centre and handy for the M62, M1 and M621.

The main aim of establishing a permanent presence in the north of England is for Dahua to provide better support for its local distributors, integrators and installers, as well as to offer training locally and provide a local base for partner events and client demos.

Dahua’s global HQ in China is in Hangzhou, a city that has been twinned with Leeds since 1988. The company approached Leeds City Council to help find a suitable location for its new offices. Last year, officials and representatives from Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership visited Dahua’s global HQ as part of a delegation to Hangzhou and Shanghai.

Ben Perkins, Head of Marketing, Dahua UK and Ireland said: “Working with a proactive organisation such as Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership really helps us, because the partnership goes out of its way to create mutually beneficial business activities. It has also helped us set up the new office. The partnership attracts business and international money to the region, which not only makes a positive impact on the lives of the people who live and work in Leeds, but also brings a great wealth of talent into the area, which will benefit Dahua as we grow our presence in the north.”

And Councillor Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council said: “Leeds has a long and prestigious relationship with China. Our trade and investment missions have helped build relationships and it is great to welcome Dahua to Leeds as a result of this activity. Next week we will be holding a series of business meetings in Hong Kong, Hangzhou and Qingdao to review how our cities can work together to increase trade and deliver economic growth.”
