Basler rebrands to concentrate growth on core camera business

Ahrensburg, Germany

In the course of their strategic reorientation over the past two years, Basler have increasingly focused on their camera business. Alongside this repositioning, Basler AG's company logo, corporate design, and internet presence have been comprehensively revised and modernised.
Basler’s decision to concentrate more on its core camera business has resulted in significant growth and is reflected in the restructuring of the website. The new look of the home page stands out through its modern graphics, more comprehensive information service, and easier access to content. For instance, navigation was expanded so that access is not only possible via the standard product catalogue but also through the applications of the cameras.

In addition, there will be a complete new forum where customers can communicate with each other as well as with Basler employees. This will further develop modern, dialog-oriented communication following Basler AG’s introduction to the social media platform Facebook last August. “The Internet is an enormously important information channel for all target groups. Accordingly, we would like to offer customised content for the various target groups via our new website,” says Anke Wübbelmann, Head of Communications, about the web relaunch.

In order to continue to make Basler’s website more useful and attractive in the future, the team is already working on more new functions that will offer the visitor even more benefits.

Big changes ahead for access control market

Following our recent reports on the Kaba and Dorma merger, and now with the news that Allegion plans to acquire Simonsvoss from HgCapital.  Blake Kozak, Principal Analyst for Security and Building technologies at IHS, predicts that this latest merger may again reshape the access-control market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The merger of Allegion and Simonsvoss would immediately create the second largest company in the EMEA region, after the market leader, Assa Abloy. The merged Kaba and Dorma would then rank third in the region.  But it has to be pointed out that this most recent merger still requires approval, by the German Bundeskartellamt, which prohibited a planned merger of Assa Abloy and Simonsvoss back in 2008.
