Hills Limited Australia has been appointed the exclusive distributor of the full range of Genetec products in Australia and New Zealand. Genetec is a leading provider of unified IP security solutions.

This follows the recent acquisition of Open Platform Systems (OPS) by Hills, strengthening the leading position of Genetec in the Australian market and extending the reach of Genetec solutions into a much broader portfolio of clients.

Guy Chenard, Vice President of Global Sales at Genetec comments that the recent acquisition of OPS by Hills will help to further build upon the already strong market position developed for Genetec by the OPS team in the region. He adds that growing the Genetec footprint in the APAC market is strategic for their business and the company is looking to partners such as Hills to help them maintain and further drive growth.

The exclusive rights of distribution of Genetec products will transfer to Hills immediately, with current customers and partners of OPS seeing minimal change in their day-to-day contacts and ongoing projects.

According to Kobi ben-Shabat, Managing Director at Open Platform Systems, Hills has an enviable reputation as a leader in Australia’s technology market with a powerful span of product and service offerings through a range of business units. For OPS and its partners, it made sense to join forces with Hills that has an outstanding track record of pre- and post-sales support, as well as a broad reach into the homes, businesses and enterprises of Australia.
