What is the main reason that Xtralis, a fire and security systems leader with globally recognized brands, has changed its name from Vision Fire & Security?
All our product brand such as VESDA aspirating smoke detectors and ADPRO video security products remain unchanged. Our business is growing. This growth is enabling us to extend our portfolio through ongoing product development as well as acquisition of complementary technologies.
The change in our business deserves to be recognized with a new name. Xtralis represents the move from Vision Systems to our own entity. With our offices established globally, reputable products and services, we are set for continued business growth globally providing solutions for life safety, business continuity and security. The new name allows Xtralis to continue to build a prominent global brand identity.
Xtralis continues to grow and expand. Few weeks ago we acquired another UK-based smoke detection company called ICAM, which designs, develops and markets sophisticated smoke detection systems throughout Europe with rapid growth in Asia and North America.
