Hills inks A/NZ distie agreement with Dahua to bolster security offering

17 May 2018

Hills Limited has signed a new distribution agreement with Zhejiang Dahua Technology (Dahua Technology), to market their range of integrated security and surveillance technology solutions across Australian and New Zealand (A/NZ).

According to Hills, the move is set to broaden its security product offering and strengthen its position as a complete solution provider in the security sector.

Hills CEO and managing director David Lenz says signing Dahua would give the distie the opportunity to compete across all security markets, from low cost to enterprise level solutions.

“Hills continues to build and invest in our security business, attracting global technology leaders with products that reinvigorate our portfolio and create opportunities for sales and growth,” Lenz says.

“As one of the largest value-added building technologies distributor in the A/NZ region, we have a deep understanding of the industry and what end-users want. We see the Dahua product fitting seamlessly alongside our existing brands and integrating with other vendor solutions like Genetec.”

Established in 2001, Dahua Technology is a global provider of security and video surveillance equipment.

Hills says the company is now the second largest global provider of video surveillance products and services, supplying over 180 countries and regions.

Its core video surveillance product line, including network cameras, NVRs and HD over coax, are used across banking and finance, government, transport and retail sectors.

Dahua Oceania managing director Lyn Cheng says Hills is ideally suited to support Dahua’s brand growth across A/NZ.

“Dahua is pleased to partner with Hills. They are a visionary distributor with solid support infrastructure across the A/NZ region and demonstrate a deep understanding of security and video surveillance.

“We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Lenz adds, “Dahua offers one of the widest product ranges in the industry, with technologies that can interface and integrate into existing analogue and future IT-based infrastructures. It’s an exciting opportunity to bring that expertise and innovation to the A/NZ market.”

“We look forward to developing this partnership with Dahua to provide solutions for our customers.”
