SKIDATA AG opens new subsidiary in Spain

The reinforcement of the local presence reflects SKIDATAs worldwide growth strategy.
The opening of the new subsidiary allows to strengthen the local market presence and an increased focus on Spanish clientele with portfolio of tailored access solutions.

Austrian-based SKIDATA AG, a member of the Swiss Kudelski Group and leading international physical access control specialist, establishes a local subsidiary in Spain. As of January 1, 2008, SKIDATA Ibérica has taken over the business activities of SIATRON S.L., SKIDATAs distribution partner for the Spanish market since 1995. SKIDATA will hold the majority stake in the new company; the remaining stake will be held by Spanish-based security and traffic solution specialist Tradesegur.

This move underscores the ongoing worldwide expansion of SKIDATA in its core markets and reflects the companys growth strategy, combining organic growth and M&A activities. Strengthening our local presence will bring us even closer to our Spanish clientele and help us to further develop this strategically important market. It is a great opportunity to leverage our technological synergies for ultimate brand impact. says Charles Egli, CEO of SKIDATA AG. This sentiment is affirmed by the founder of SIATRON S.L., Christian Liesau: After well over a decade of successful cooperation, we are very happy to join forces under the SKIDATA brand. This will allow us to serve our Spanish clients with an even wider range of tailored solutions and services.
