Entrance security solutions specialist Boon Edam Australia announces the appointment of Darren Assey as the new Business Development Manager to strengthen their Australasian operations.

Assey brings to his new position, more than 15 years of experience working with architects, builders, engineers and key specifiers. Having been employed previously with national steel building products specialist Stramit as well as industrial building materials leader James Hardie, he is equipped to handle the technical nature of his new role with Boon Edam Australia.

“Boon Edam is at the forefront of entrance security. The company’s products have the perfect blend of elegance and functionality – and they are constantly investing in new technology to lead the market. I’m excited to work with a globally leading company with more than 140 years’ experience in the architectural revolving doors and security entrance industries,” said Assey.

Global leadership with dedicated local service

Boon Edam has a global presence with operations in 27 countries, meeting the needs of some of the world’s biggest companies and multinational groups, as well as public and private entities. Boon Edam’s global clients include dozens of Fortune 500 companies.

Boon Edam’s products are used to secure data centres, cash centres, financial institutions, government offices, public broadcasters, ports, corporate HQs, scientific facilities, high-end retailers and public and private facilities.

Assey believes that Boon Edam has a major advantage in the Australasian market thanks to their dedication to world-class customer service standards. “In my new role, I want to show customers that working with Boon Edam will be a transparent, honest and collaborative experience, and our service team will always be there to support them.”

Continued expansion

Boon Edam has expanded their Australian operations to also cover New Zealand and Papua New Guinean industries seeking to blend functionality, security and elegance. These industries are frequently seeking solutions to fulfil duty of care obligations by protecting workers and visitors as well as sensitive data without compromising the facility’s aesthetics.

Boon Edam Australia managing director Michael Fisher says Assey’s appointment is a further step in expanding Boon Edam’s service offering nationwide, as well as throughout New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

Assey has been tasked with developing new relationships with customers and potential clients that can benefit from Boon Edam’s solutions-focused and service-oriented approach. Fisher is impressed with Assey’s analytical mind, and is confident he has the technical knowledge and background to step straight into this role as well as the willingness to think outside the box to best serve customers.
