Xortec GmbH (“Xortec”), headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, is strengthening its market position as a provider of network-based video surveillance and data communication solutions. With retroactive effect from January 01, 2021, Xortec has acquired Videosystems Sicherungstechnik Vertriebs GmbH (“Videosystems”) in Munich.
The cooperation between the two companies creates one of the leading distributors for video security on the German market.
“The acquisition of Videosystems is another milestone in the company’s history for Xortec and an important step for the strategic development in a sought-after growth market,” says Hubert Irka, founder and managing director of Xortec GmbH. Andreas Schlawien, Managing Director and founder of Videosystems, adds: “Through the partnership with Xortec, we can focus even more intensively on our customers and product solutions and, among other things, gain access to Xortec’s excellent logistics, which significantly increases our product availability.”
The management team will be strengthened by Michael Schaller, who joined the management of Xortec GmbH in April 2021. In addition to many years of experience as managing director in security companies, he brings the customer perspective of specialist installers to the company and, together with Andreas Schlawien, takes over the management of Videosystems.
