Hikvision has opened its office in Johannesburg, South Africa, from where it will serve the entire African market
The China-based video surveillance products manufacturer had registered its office in South Africa two years ago. Following the company’s rapid growth in the region, and the increasing need for providing local assistance and training, the facility has now been opened and is available to support the whole African market.
“Hikvision has gained massive acceptance in the market, a position that has strengthened over time, with the company holding a 16.3 per cent share of the global surveillance industry market,” said James Dong, managing director of Hikvision South Africa. “Our rapid growth requires us to pay closer attention to localisation, and to be able to provide instant local support.”
The office is equipped with a demonstration area where customers can see and interact with the latest Hikvision products, as well as a seminar room for customers to learn about cutting-edge surveillance technologies from Hikvision.
“We appreciate the continued support and understanding from our partners over the years, and now it is just the right time to open the facility in South Africa to become a venue for us to collaborate more closely,” added Dong. “The office will assist Hikvision in delivering best-in-class support and backup to our local partners. We are looking forward to a bright future in the African region.”
