OPTEX, a sensor manufacturer, will be demonstrating its whole product portfolio at Sicur for the first time and introducing its newly created Iberia team.
Mark Cosgrave, Western Europe Divisional Manager for OPTEX EMEA, said “Spain and the Iberian Peninsula is an important region for OPTEX and there is a clear demand for highly reliable, high-quality sensor technologies. To meet this exciting challenge, we have created a dedicated team of native speakers to support our network of approved and certified partners in the region. Sicur will be an excellent opportunity to introduce the new team to our customers as well as the complete range of our security products.”
OPTEX’s New IBERIA sales team
The new team consists of Milton Acosta, Regional Sales Manager, and Tony Singh, Technical Sales Manager. Milton joined OPTEX in September 2017 and has been working in the security sector since 1996. He has more than 20 years’ experience in Video management, IP CCTV, access control, automation, intrusion sensors, video analytics, fire detection and integration.
Tony has been working for OPTEX as part of the EMEA sales & technical support team for 17 years and is now based in Madrid to bring greater training support to the region. He has worked in most security sectors and provides training on all of OPTEX’s sensor technologies. He also supports ‘proof of concept’ for projects that include long range PIRs, laser and fibre optics sensors.
New Short-range Sensors to be showcased at SICUR
Jacques Vaarre, Managing Director for OPTEX EMEA, says that the company will use Sicur to launch a new series of products: “We will be showcasing our new series of short range sensor – the VX and BX Shield – which are ideal for protecting residential and commercial buildings,” he says.
“For high security applications, our laser sensors, fibre optic perimeter intrusion sensors and tailgating sensor will be demonstrated live at the show. “
OPTEX’s sister company Raytec, a world leader in LED lighting for security and safety, will also be showing its IP variable lighting (Vario-IP) on the stand.
