Gallagher's association with the Indian government and business community is extremely positive following a recent visit to Gujarat by Gallagher CEO, Sir William Gallagher. That's according to IBEX Gallagher Manager, NV Gautham, who recently hosted the New Zealand businessman in India.
Sir William was a key speaker at the Fire & Security Association of India (Gujarat Chapter) seminar on Emerging Trends in Perimeter and Integrated Access Security. The event, sponsored by Bangalore based Ibex Gallagher Private Limited, was attended by over 180 delegates including key government authorities engaged in security solutions & risk management businesses.
Expressing his views on the Seminar, Mr. Pankaj Dharkar, (President - FSAI Gujarat Chapter) said, "The rising level of security threat has become a major cause of concern not only for government institutions and big corporate houses but also for small entrepreneurs. Major incidents of intrusion have become very common and to prevent such incidents, we need to adopt integrated security solutions applying advanced technology. In this rapidly changing scenario, various security solutions available in the market acquire new dimensions in line with the technological advancement and seminars like this would help us to understand and adopt this kind of new solutions." Mr. Dharkar explained that this is why Sir William Gallagher was invited to present at the seminar. "He is an excellent leader and well known for his pioneering efforts in electric power fence systems."
Gallagher has developed electric perimeter fence systems as a first line of defence. The systems provide a unique physical and psychological barrier to detect and deter would-be intruders and are installed around the world by some of the most demanding customers including organisations in the utilities, transport, airports, ports, corrections and defense sectors through to a wide range of commercial, manufacturing, self storage and distribution sites. Gallagher systems can be installed to be stand alone or directly interfaced with any other type of intruder alarm, access control, or integrated security system for arming and disarming zones, alarm monitoring and signalling.
While in India, Sir William also joined key IBEX Gallagher staff at a meeting with the Gujarat Chief Minister, Honorable Shri Narendrabhai Modi, to discuss ideas on better security management for the State of Gujarat. The discussions were focused on protection of State Boundaries / perimeter and protection of important premises which are most vulnerable for attack, with implantation of proper system and policy for perimeter protection & integrated security for better management.
Sir William Gallagher says "The Government of Gujarat has Gallagher's full support in its endeavour to provide a safer, secure and stronger Gujarat."
Gallagher's security solutions are well established in India.
The recent construction of India's largest automobile manufacturing site incorporated the country's first non-electrified, monitored perimeter security system supplied by Ibex Gallagher.
Tata Motors Limited is the world's fourth largest truck manufacturer, and the world's second largest bus manufacturer. It is the leader in commercial vehicles in each segment, and among the top three in passenger vehicles with winning products in the compact, midsize car and utility vehicle segments. In March 2009, Tata Motors launched its People's Car, the Tata Nano, a four door family vehicle likely to retail around US $2500.
To support development of the vehicle, the company is constructing a new factory in a high residential area of Gujarat, India. Working in partnership with Advanced System Limited, IBEX Gallagher will be responsible for the installation of a 10-kilometre tautwire perimeter security system at the new factory. More recently, Gallagher security solutions were used to enhance the perimeter of Mangalore Chemicals & Fertilizers Limited in the state of Karnataka, India.
Gallagher's access management system is also the core platform for one of the largest integrated security systems in the world at India's Reliance Group.
