Bavak PAS Ltd is a new joint venture between Bavak BV and ParkSecure, formed with the aim of bringing a new range of perimeter security and access control systems to UK and Irish end-users and installers.
Tony Girard will be well known to the industry from his days at Gunnebo Physical Security and APT Security Systems. His early career was spent in sales for Hewlett Packard and Schlumberger, having originally started as a student apprentice at the Ministry of Defence.
In 2007 he formed his own business, Parksecure, as a consultant on specialist security projects, and was instrumental in engineering the joint venture with the Dutch security group Bavak BV which already has a large installed-base Europe-wide, with gates, barriers and blockers protecting a number of high profile military and government sites.
Tony says that he is already enjoying the challenge: “In teaming with ParkSecure and creating Bavak PAS Ltd, the purpose is to extend the range of products and technologies available, enhance local service and maintenance support, and introduce new bespoke services,” he says.
Bavak manufactures a range of its own crash-rated barriers, fast-acting gates, bollards and blockers, as well as working with and for third parties. Customers include many of Europe’s best-known M&E contractors and construction firms, and its products protect various high-risk sites from military establishments and embassies, through to airports and similar critical infrastructure.
