Just off the coast of Morocco, around 1,300 kilometers from the Spanish mainland, lies sunny Tenerife - the largest of the Canary Islands. The year-round mild climate, diverse vegetation, bizarre volcanic landscapes, fantastic beaches and a multitude of sport and cultural activities attract around five million (long-term) holidaymakers each year. Since the start of 2010, SimonsVoss has been providing protection for both property owners and tenants in Atlantic View, a luxurious holiday and housing development on the south of the island near Las Galletas.
SimonsVoss can look back on a highly successful year and, according to a study by a strategy consulting company, landed in the top ten of the leading German medium-sized companies with regard to earnings and turnover growth. Power of innovation and high customer focus formed the basis of this success. The company is currently investing 6 million Euro in a new production facility in Saxony-Anhalt.
On April 12, 2012, SimonsVoss delivered its millionth digital locking cylinder to Trinity Hall, a prestigious College of Cambridge University. During a ceremonial handover, SimonsVoss CEO Hans-Gernot Illig also presented an original cylinder embedded in clear acrylic to the college's bursar, Paul ffolkes Davis, observed by the Senior Tutor, Dr Nick Bampos and the Junior Bursar, Glen Sharp. The millionth digital cylinder produced by SimonsVoss was also installed during the ceremony.
SimonsVoss Technologies AG has reported group sales of Euro 46.4 million for the fiscal year 2011. The European market leader for electronic locking and access control systems has exceeded sales by an impressive 18 percent compared with the previous year.
SimonsVoss Technologies further extends its European presence and opens the Nordic region sales office in Stockholm.
In view of the very positive business development during the last years SimonsVoss has decided to implement its own sales organisation to further develop the market. Daniel Rumack has been appointed as Sales Manager Nordic Region to lead those activities. Prior to joining SimonsVoss, Daniel Rumack was responsible for the sales and marketing activities for the Kaba AB access control products.
A new innovation has been added to the digital locking and access control system 3060. The new door fitting SmartHandle 3062 combines intelligent access control functions with its elegant, ergonomic design. Classic door fittings require holes to be drilled in doors for fastening. The unique highlight of the SmartHandle is that it can be fastened in the PZ hole already present in DIN locks with a single screw.
This so-called “snap-in” procedure ensures that the fitting is permanently secure and takes into account all possible applications of force.
Simonsvoss: digital locking cylinder. At this year’s IFSEC Simonsvoss presented two new variants of its digital locking cylinder 3061 to the British market for the first time.
The cylinders offer the same features as the company’s Euro-profile cylinder. The continental version of the cylinder is characterised by its very long battery life, providing up to 150,000 actuations with standard button cell batteries or seven years in stand-by.
