Wireless fire tech providers form ‘Orama Group’ collective partnership

Ramtech, Argus and Hyfire have announced the formation of a new ‘collective partnership’, to be called The Orama Group.

OramaGroup-22All three fire solution providers are owned by the Halma Group, with the new collective designed to ‘push innovation and expand geographical reach to further meet the wireless safety and security needs of different industries’.

Across the group more than 30 geographic regions are covered, and with pooling resources it is believed that they can take advantage of combined expertise to develop new wireless technologies and solutions. While the three member companies will continue to operate as separate brands, the joint venture will encourage each to share and contribute ideas and resources between each other and their customers.

James Pecz, Global Marketing and Business Development Manager at Ramtech, said: “Historically, Ramtech has a significant presence in the fire and security industries around the world and this collaboration with two more leading companies will mean knowledge is being used even more effectively to protect people and places.

“In a rapidly digitising world, products and solutions that integrate will be essential for professionals in the safety industry. Our aim, through The Orama Group, is to make the lives of those with responsibility for others easier through the power of technology.

“We have recently launched new and improved versions of our most successful products, proving our commitment to always seeking greater awareness and answers for our customers’ problems. Technology is being used in all industries now in a variety of ways and through The Orama Group we believe that we can leverage the opportunities presented by adaptation, integration and collaboration.”

Ramtech, for instance, has recently launched a new water detection solution by expanding its REACT platform to provide automatic water leak detection on construction sites, in addition to the fire and evacuation solutions as part of its WES system. The formation of The Orama Group suggests several more innovations from the three vendors involved may be released in the near future.

Giorgio Koursaris, Managing Director at The Orama Group, said: “This is an exciting and forward-thinking project. I speak for all three founding companies in the group when I say we are excited about the future as part of The Orama Group.

“Each company brings different strengths and expertise to the to the table and these varied skill sets will allow us to offer truly best in class digital and wireless safety solutions to multiple industries over the coming months and years. Digital and wireless excellence is at the heart of everything we want to achieve as members of Orama.”
