Australian expansion

Have your say

Leading fire systems manufacturer Advanced Electronics is expanding in Australia.

The Queen’s Award-winning company, whose global research and development centre is based in Barnsley, has launched a new subsidiary in Sydney and Melbourne, called Fusion Advanced, after acquiring one of Australia’s fastest growing fire system providers, Fusion Fire Systems.

Advanced’s managing director, Ray Hope, said: “Fusion impressed us from the first day we began working with them.

“It was a very easy deal for us to do and we’re delighted to welcome the Fusion team to the organisation. Our business in the region is growing fast and Fusion Advanced will be key in continuing that success.”

Advanced Electronics manufactures “intelligent” electronic fire detection and life safety equipment.
