Synnex AU inks Honeywell distie deal

06 Sep 16

Synnex has signed on as a distributor of Honeywell’s security surveillance solutions across Australia, in a move Synnex says is a timely response to market conditions.

According to Yu Chen Liao, product director for Synnex Australia, both business and consumer markets are increasingly diversifying the security and surveillance solutions they deploy thanks in part to the growth in internet connected devices, and smart home and office systems. The global alarm monitoring market alone is expected to reach US$54.4 billion by 2020.

“Synnex is excited to work with Honeywell to deliver a world-class product offering to the Australian security surveillance segment,” says Liao.

“Honeywell is well-known in the market as an expert in security surveillance technology providing strong solutions to all vertical markets,” he says.

“Honeywell is an ideal vendor to help extend our holistic security solutions to new and existing partners in the region.” 

Synnex will distribute Honeywell’s complete portfolio, which includes building and asset protection, alarm communications, and building monitoring, which can be deployed in every organisation. The company services SMBs as well as large enterprises, and has specialist offerings for retail, banking, finance, government, military, and utility sectors. 

Stephen Higgins, general manager of Honeywell Security and Fire, says the collaboration with Synnex Australia reinforces the company’s commitment to supporting the growth of the security sector in Australia and New Zealand.

“The agreement will enable Honeywell to expand its reach and better support customers in the region, particularly in the IT sector, which makes up 30% of the IP surveillance market,” he explains.
