Following several years of strong growth, there continues to be much expansion and development underway at access controls specialists, Nortech.
Nortech’s Managing Director Steve Blackler is delighted with the company’s progress commenting, “At the end of last year we won some significant projects around the country. To accommodate the increasing demand for Nortech’s systems, we have just made four new appointments, three in technical sales and support and one in R&D, and all of these will strengthen our team in these key areas.”
Expanding technical and commercial teams
In addition to these appointments, Nortech also intends to employ two apprentices for the technical and commercial sides of the company in the first quarter of 2018. As an ‘Investor in People’ company, Nortech very much sees the value of apprenticeships that are great for developing skills in new people matched to the future needs of the business.
As one of the leaders in access controls systems, Nortech is proud of its approach to product engineering to ensure quality and reliability in both its products and services. It values its ISO 9001:2008 quality standard and is now comprehensively working towards the ISO 9001:2015 standard for mid-2018, having already flown through the external audit process.
Nortech has found that all their training courses are well attended and received
Specialised training courses
As a company, Nortech has always believed in providing training courses for installers, distributors and system integrators. These can be held either locally or at Nortech’s headquarters in Cwmbran where a purpose-built training room is set aside for these courses. For 2018, the product training programme has been fully updated, and now offers no less than 14 different modules that cover various aspects on access control, long-range identification, vehicle detection and parking, and readers and ID devices. Nortech has found that all their training courses are well attended and received and offer delegates the opportunity to fully understand the products and the Nortech brand.
Having strengthened its export distribution in the Middle East last year, Nortech also participated in the Intersec show in Dubai this January to cement its relationship with its distributors, Digital Factors, and to network with the many contacts that the company has at this international security and safety solutions exhibition, where over 1,300 companies exhibited this year.
