Silent Sentinel build on US expansion plans with global offering
British thermal imaging specialist Silent Sentinel has agreed to a partnership with US consulting firm JGW Group to reinforce their presence in the United States. Having originally been a firm specialising in providing CCTV, Silent Sentinel has moved with demand and is now providing advanced thermal imaging cameras around the globe.
Based in Stanstead Abbotts in Hertfordshire the company is growing rapidly, with further staff members based overseas including the recent opening of Silent Sentinel Inc, with their office in St Petersburg, Florida.
The appointment of JGW Group as their sales partner in the US follows on from notable successes in the US market, including their selection by the Department of Defense as a provider for the ‘Build the Base of the Future.’ The programme is focused on how the US Air Force utilises new installations to analyse and improve the security and defence systems with Silent Sentinel providing Electro-Optical, infrared and tracking for the solution.
Silent Sentinel is a well-established provider of surveillance and security systems, specialising in both cooled and uncooled long-range thermal camera platforms. With the increasing need for threat detection systems capable of addressing the danger posed by drones, Silent Sentinel has already exported its systems to over 50 countries worldwide.
James Longcroft, Sales Director of Silent Sentinel said: “The US market is seeing a high demand for surveillance systems and perimeter protection, and building on our prior successes in the US has always been a key component of our international strategy. The appointment of JGW Group demonstrates the next step of our development in the US, and we are looking forward to working with them to widen our stakeholder engagement and help expand our existing presence in North America.”
Andrew Wilson, President of JGW Group said: “We are proud to have Silent Sentinel join our group of leading-edge technology companies who have come from the UK. We see a strong demand for optical solutions from perimeter protection of high-profile facilities to our US borders where stand-off solutions are so important. Silent Sentinel will be well placed to respond to US DoD, Federal and State/Local requirements utilizing JGW’s 40 years of experience in these markets in combination with their already established and successful operations in Florida.”
