Bewator, one of the UK's leading developers and suppliers of security products, has changed its name to Siemens Building Technologies Security Products Limited.
The adoption of the Siemens identity is a natural progression following the Siemens acquisition of Bewator in November 2005. However, Bewator has been careful to ensure that the timing is right not only for the company, but also for its customers. It is confident that the change will bring big benefits to all those who buy, sell and use the company's equipment.
Despite the change in the company title, the renowned Bewator name is not disappearing. The Bewator brand will continue to be recognised within the Siemens Building Technologies Security Products portfolio - along with the Siemens and Europlex brands - and as such the name will continue to feature on a large number of familiar products.
One of the most significant developments signalled by the name change is that the company now has access to the full technical and financial resources of the Siemens organisation. This will drive future product and systems development, ensuring that customers continue to enjoy the very best in leading-edge security technology and the additional quality assurance that a global brand like Siemens brings.
Being part of the Siemens organisation also allows customers of the new Security Products business to access one of the widest ranges of equipment available from a single source. Current products will continue to be available and are rapidly being complemented by exciting new additions to the range. Interoperability between product ranges from the brands of Siemens Building Technologies Security Products will be further enhanced.
"Bewator has always been a successful and market-leading operation," said Managing Director, Bob Cotterill, "but there's no doubt that membership of the Siemens organisation has given the business additional impetus and allows us to move forward more rapidly and in ways that would not previously have been possible.
"When we asked our customers how they felt about changing the company name to reflect these developments, there was a strong feeling that the Siemens name means innovation, quality and product interoperability. In short, Siemens Building Technologies Security Products Ltd may be simply a new name to front our business - but it's a name with an incredible amount behind it!"
