Paxton appoints exclusive South African distributor

Brighton, East Sussex (UK)

Paxton, a global brand of electronic access control and door entry solutions has updated its distribution network in South Africa by announcing an exclusive distribution partnership.

From 15th January, the company’s innovative product range including its flagship access control system, Net2 will be available nationally from branches of the Regal Group which includes Regal Security and Reditron.

Net2 is designed to be easy to specify and install, making life simpler for installers and integrators. It moves beyond the basics of securing access to doors to provide features including system integration, building management, energy saving and security lockdown.

Established in 1981, the Regal Group has been serving the South African security industry for over 35 years and became an official Paxton distributor in 2016. Today, the Regal Group offers its customers the choice of over 4000 security products and peripherals, available from 26 branches throughout the country.

Andrew Levell-Smith, Regal’s Group Access Control Product Manager said “We are extremely privileged to have been awarded exclusive rights to distribute Paxton, one of the world’s leading access control brands, in South Africa.

“Recent market shifts have led to a marked increase in demand for innovative access control products. The combination of Paxton’s quality brand and Regal Group’s superior countrywide distribution channels will prove to be a dominant force in this growing market during 2018 and beyond.”

Dan Drayton, Paxton’s International Sales Manager, said: “We are excited to be strengthening our partnership with Regal and Reditron in South Africa and are confident that this exclusive partnership will be beneficial for our customers. We have some exciting plans for 2018 and are looking forward to continuing to grow our customer base in the region.”

Paxton has also launched an online search tool to help customers find local security installers who have been trained to install its Net2 product range. These certified installers are a part of its Paxton Partner Programme and work closely with Paxton’s Regional Sales team to ensure that the needs of customers are fully understood and met.
