A customer showcase centre located at Hikvision's HQ demonstrates the vertical markets it addresses (education, health-care, transportation, banking, etc.) as well as solutions that are less well known to the North American market like home automation products. The company is also expanding, building an addition to its already sizeable HQ that opened just two years ago, as well as pursuing an international expansion strategy it calls “Glocalization” — global growth with a local focus. The company, for example, opened a Montreal facility earlier this year. For more on Hikvision, read the Nov/Dec issue of SP&T News, available in the coming weeks.
