Abus UK appoints new MD

Bristol, UK

Peter Romanov, new MD of Abus UK

Abus worldwide have continued to successfully grow as a supplier of total security solutions ranging from mechanical security products to advanced intruder, access control and video surveillance systems. In recognition of the total security range now available and with UK being a key market for the company, Abus has appointed Peter Romanov as new Managing Director of Abus UK.

Peter joins Abus with a wealth of previous experience in the security market including both mechanical and electronic security products for both residential and commercial markets. Over the past 20 years he has held various management positions successfully growing those businesses.

Nick Vanderhoest has stepped down as Abus UK MD in anticipation of his own pending retirement, and to help ensure that Abus can be driven on to be the potential number 1 UK security brand.

Commenting on his appointment Peter said: “It is a genuine privilege for me to be able to take up this appointment with Abus. During my career I have long seen Abus from the perspective of both a customer and competitor, and everything I have seen has always been excellent. The product range ABUS offers is of exceptional quality, but for me, and I hope our customers, what is perhaps more important is the genuine Abus spirit. Knowing you are working for and with a company that has such high standards in everything they do, from product quality and innovation all the way to aftermarket support is a huge advantage. Abus are not just exceptional in the products and services they provide, but also how they apply their core values in their relationships with customers, suppliers and staff.

Nick has passed on an excellent UK team that I know are as instilled as I am with the spirit of Abus, and I look forward to helping all our existing and new customers exploit that spirit to the full.”
