Poole-based TDSi has agreed to an acquisition by VITAPROTECH France. This continues VITAPROTECH’s external growth strategy and boosts its access control portfolio.
After strategic analysis of the best options to accelerate growth at TDSi and augment the launch of the new GARDiS ONVIF Profile A and C compatible hardware and software platforms and the journey to offering Access Control as a Service capability to our customers and the market, TDSi is pleased to announce that it has agreed to be acquired by VITAPROTECH Group, one of the European leaders in access control and security systems and technologies for critical sites. This acquisition continues Vitaprotech’s dynamic and steady growth strategy which has included several acquisitions in the market over the last 2 years.
The acquisition of TDSi aligns perfectly with VITAPROTECH Group’s and TDSi’s growth strategy to develop export sales of technological security solutions for sites all around the world.
For over 35 years, TDSi has been offering a vast range of readers, controllers and software systems through its customer network primarily in the United Kingdom, France, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
This acquisition will enable VITAPROTECH to expand its access control portfolio, to strengthen the Group’s export presence and to access international distribution networks in the sector.
For TDSi, this merger will allow it to speed up the finalisation of its new range of GARDiS products including the launch of Access Control as a Service through the GARDiS ONVIF Compatible Open Source software platform and to benefit from the additional resources that the Vitaprotech Group brings to strengthen its market penetration in markets it currently doesn’t service through the use of Vitaprotech Group business development and sales teams across the world.
For Vitaprotech Group’s perimeter intrusion detection business, TDSi will become the logistics and technical support base in the United Kingdom, delivering better service for the UK market.
