Reliance has integrated traditional and new technologies to protect critical infrastructure programs
The strategy to focus on specialist technologies for markets where security is a business critical issue is reaping rewards for leading security integrator Reliance High-Tech. A new breed of IT centric solutions has stimulated growth across integrated IP, Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and networked digital interviewing markets.
The strategy has yielded a diversity of new customers including Pfizer, Newell Rubbermaid and Loughborough University and resulted in major projects with EDF Energy Nuclear New Build and a new deep-sea container port and logistics park in the Thames Estuary, where Reliance has integrated traditional and new technologies to protect critical infrastructure programs.
This success is coupled to new long-term frameworks with Western Power Distribution and the National Health Service, amongst others and consolidates Reliance’s position across criminal justice, utilities, education and healthcare sectors. Tangible results include sales in excess of £10 million in the first financial quarter, up 140% on the previous year.
Terry Sallas, Managing Director, Reliance High-Tech, commented, “We recognise that issues such as IT convergence, disruptive technologies and evolving security threats will increasingly coexist with traditional security needs.
“Through blending security and IT expertise and collaborating with specialist partners, we are providing solutions that improve security and address complex technical issues pragmatically and efficiently; this approach has increased the proximity to our customers and created new opportunities”
