The State of Physical Access Control in EMEA Businesses – 2020 Report

Vimpex announces smart acquisition

As of 31 January 2020, specialist manufacturer of world class fire evacuation, signalling and building infrastructure system products, Vimpex Limited has acquired the legal rights and ownership of Sigma Fire and Security and its brands Smart+Guard and Smart+Cage from Evac+Chair International.

Vimpex Managing Director, James Jones, commented: “This important acquisition marks a pivotal moment for Vimpex, and an exciting point in our growth as a UK manufacturer.

“Evac+Chair International has been a highly-trusted and valued partner of Vimpex for some time, and we believe that through our specialist sector expertise, wide reach and established brand presence in the marketplace, Vimpex is in a strong position to drive forward the future growth of Sigma Fire and Security.

“The addition of the Smart+Guard range is yet another important strategic step in the Vimpex mission to become the world’s leading independent manufacturer and distributor of fire alarm sounders and associated evacuation and alarm system equipment and accessories, and is firmly aligned with company aspirations for new market penetration and protection of our supply chain, and to further shape alarm technology.”

Vimpex will now be distributing all products previously distributed by Sigma including GFS security products and Resettable Call Points. Any existing contracts will not be affected and will be transferred to Vimpex, with the company continuing to sell and develop Sigma Fire and Security’s product portfolio.
