Fortus set to stock Hisense commercial security and AV solutions with distribution agreement

Hisense has entered into a strategic partnership with Fortus to launch the brand across multiple channels in the UK and Ireland, set to be available from Q2 this year.

The Hisense commercial display brand offers a “unique opportunity” for Fortus to expand its reach into the surveillance, security and pro AV markets, says the business.

Mark Massie, Commercial Director at Fortus UK explains: ‘We currently see a lot of convergence between the security and pro AV channels in the UK. Increasingly our traditional security customers are seeking integration of surveillance products with commercial display solutions. Equally we know that sales of security and surveillance products are growing rapidly into the AV channel. Having a market leading display brand like Hisense in our portfolio has the potential expand our sales and customer base significantly’.

Founded in 1969, Hisense has grown over five decades into a global electronics brand that now employs over 80,000 people. The Hisense range includes digital signage, interactive displays and bespoke LED and outdoor solutions.

Philip Davis, UK Sales Manager for Hisense commented on the Fortus appointment: “It’s great to share the ambitions of our Hisense distributor and working with Fortus in the UK and Ireland is exactly that. The company has grown significantly in the last 10 years during its successful partnerships with global brands such as Hikvision and Honeywell. Its recent expansion and appetite to enter the Pro AV market makes it an excellent entry point for Hisense in the UK. The company infrastructure and extensive sales and support teams mean Fortus is genuinely able to add the value required to make Hisense a successful market leading commercial display brand in the UK.”

Hisense products are scheduled to arrive in the UK and be shipping from Fortus by Q2 2021. All Hisense solutions sold in the UK are supported by a minimum three year onsite deinstallation warranty.
