Heald, the Hornsea-based manufacturer of hostile vehicle mitigation systems, has strengthened its position across Asia after signing a new partnership agreement with Singapore’s ESCO.
The distributor agreement will grant exclusive authority to ESCO to market and sell the Heald Matador and Viper within Singapore and South East Asia countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia.
Sanjeev Bhat, Director of ESCO, has played a pivotal role in Singapore’s adoption of British security standards and measures having more than ten years of experience in the industry.
Singapore has led the way in its commitment to hostile vehicle mitigation with other Asian countries following suit, making it one of the most active security markets in the world.
“Our regional presence will facilitate Heald’s presence and position in the region. We are excited at the opportunity to bring Heald’s innovative product solutions to customers within Asia with enhanced technical and after-sales support,” he said.
Heald MD Debbie Heald said: “We have been supplying to the SEA region for 10 years, however, this collaboration will see the partnership with ESCO offer greater in-country support to our existing customers and also the promotion of our current range and new innovative hostile vehicle mitigation systems to these countries,” said
“These are growing regions with exciting opportunities and we are thrilled to be working with ESCO and our long term experienced partner, Sanjeev Bhat.”
