How does a US$1.5 billion global security company get even bigger?

Easy… If you’re FLIR Systems, the world’s largest company specializing in the design and production of thermal imaging cameras.

Pioneers in thermal imaging, FLIR Systems, tirelessly manufacture advanced systems and components that are used for a wide variety of thermal imaging, situational awareness, and security applications, including airborne and ground-based surveillance, condition monitoring, navigation, recreation, research and development, manufacturing process control, search and rescue, drug interdiction, transportation safety and efficiency, border and maritime patrol, environmental monitoring, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives threat detection.

It seems the natural progression for this large US based company is its very own Day/Night (CCTV) camera range. Actively being sold in the US for a few years now, the IP and HD over coax range of dome, bullet and PTZ cameras along with DVRs and NVRs came about from FLIR’s acquisition of Digimerge and Lorex (already the world’s eleventh biggest in sales ranking). FLIR Systems has established itself as one of the market leaders within the North American market (currently the only place these products are sold).

The introduction of the Day/Night (CCTV) range will see FLIR Systems aiming these products at the entry level segment of the Australian market where currently only Asian branded products exist. The brand equity of FLIR Systems, combined with R&D and the quality of the US based giant, will ensure growth in FLIR’s sales.

These products are currently being finalized to fit within the Australian market and we will see the complete range of the products launched at ASIAL Security 2015 in Melbourne this year (visit FLIR at booth H37). FLIR Systems will be offering a full 3-year manufacturer’s warranty as well as full access to the FLIR Cloud (FLIR’s proprietary software system).
