Xtralis acquires Swiss-based ASIM Technologies Ltd

Hemel, Hempstead (UK)

Xtralis has acquired the PIR detector manufacturer ASIM Technologies Ltd as part of a strategy to bring complementary products and expertise to the business and deliver wider solutions capabilities to its customers.


ASIM will play a central role in Xtralis' growing portfolio of products and services, targeting life safety, business continuity and security solutions. It is hoped that the acquisition will create new sales and marketing opportunities, as well as enhancing the company's already extensive new product development programme.

"ASIM products have an excellent reputation in the market and will especially complement our perimeter security systems and provide customers with a significantly enhanced solution" says Helge Rognstad, EMEA marketing manager, Xtralis.

ASIM Technologies, which is also noted for its expertise in traffic detection and traffic data acquisition systems, is headquartered in Uznach, Switzerland.

The acquisition of ASIM Technologies follows soon after the re-branding of Vision Fire & Security to Xtralis last month (May).

"Our stated objective is to build a prominent global brand identity, supporting our Vesda smoke detection range, Adpro surveillance products and Millbank voice alarm systems and actively looking for new acquisition opportunities in the UK, Europe and indeed globally where we can identify complementary technologies and markets. ASIM represents the first stage in meeting this objective" Mr Rognstad concludes.
