Optelecom-NKF Renamed Following Merger With TKH Group

Optelecom-NKF Inc., manufacturer of Siqura and Optelecom video surveillance solutions, announced that it will be renamed on April 1, as a result of its recent merger with the Dutch company, TKH Group. The merger between TKH Group and Optelecom-NKF was made definite in January.

Over the past two years, Optelecom-NKF has positioned nearly all its surveillance solutions under the Siqura brand name, with the exception of its Optelecom fiber optic line in the U.S. Once the merger with TKH Group was made definite, it was decided to rename Optelecom-NKF.

As of April 1, the EMEA offices will be named Siqura and the company headquarters will be relocated to Gouda, the Netherlands.

In order to effectively market the existing Siqura and Optelecom brands as well as the TKH Security Solutions offering in the Americas, the Optelecom-NKF U.S. office will be renamed as TKH Security Solutions USA Inc.

“Optelecom-NKF has always been an adept player in the global industry of video networking, both through its innovative IP solutions as well as its established and extensive fiber optic line,” said Tom Overwijn, CEO of Siqura and TKH Security Solutions USA.

“In becoming a member of TKH Group and giving our company two different names, we are able to promote Optelecom-NKF’s promising potential in ways that better ensure the success of our customers. TKH Security Solutions USA will be an accessible portal through which the entire range of solutions comprised in the TKH security sector will become available in the Americas. Throughout the rest of the world, the now well-known Siqura name will continue to safeguard and endorse our longstanding commitment to quality and reliable surveillance solutions that meet the specific needs of our customers and partners. Through this merger and name change, we expect to more effectively serve and benefit our customers and the industry.”

Optelecom-NKF asserts that throughout this transition period, business will continue as usual so as not to disrupt operations for its customers.
