UK installers now have wider access to Risco security solutions, as the company has signed a national distribution agreement with leading global security distributor, ADI Global Distribution. Installers will now also be able to access Risco solutions via ADI’s extensive network of branch locations or online through ADI’s Digital Branch.
Risco has a long-standing relationship with ADI, which has distributed its wired detection devices for over 30 years. The expanded relationship will enable installers across the UK to access the full Risco portfolio via the distributor, providing them with an additional purchasing option, empowering them to select the route which allows them to deliver installations with maximum efficiency.
While Risco will continue to deliver first-line UK-based technical assistance to its direct-channel customers, ADI will offer additional services to its own clients. Face-to-face product training for all buyers will be provided by the manufacturer, either on-site at its Manchester headquarters or facilitated by ADI’s extensive nationwide training facilities.
The expanded range of Risco’s portfolio of wired, wireless and hybrid solutions available via ADI includes the new integrated alarm, access control and video verification solution Lightsys+ access control, launched in November.
“ADI continues to focus on driving an industry-leading product selection to meet the needs of our customers and we are pleased to add Risco’s security solutions to our extensive product portfolio,” said Simon Allan, UK & Ireland country manager, ADI. “This distribution relationship provides our customers with a greater choice of leading products to build complete solutions.”
Added Risco’s UK and Ireland managing director, Mark Taylor: “Our new national distribution relationship with ADI means that our products are now more widely available and enables us to jointly grow new business opportunities. It also allows professional installers – including NSI- and SSAIB- accredited companies delivering high-end residential and large multi-site commercial projects – to choose the purchasing route that best enables the delivery of efficient and cost-effective projects.”
Risco’s global CEO Hemy Fintsy concluded: “We have recently developed a robust distribution relationship with ADI across multiple regions, generating new business through the expert distribution channels of their EMEA network. We are delighted to extend this relationship to the UK market, whilst providing installers with increased choice and access to Risco’s product portfolio.”
