Gent 24 Network Celebrating 20 years of partnership
Added 19/03/2020
This year we are celebrating the 20 year anniversary since Honeywell Gent established the Gent 24 Network of approved system integrators (SIs). Over the years our network has grown to include over 100 partners, all of which operate at the pinnacle of their profession.

Since establishing the Gent 24 Network, we have partnered with some of the UK's leading specialists in the fire industry. Our system integrators are fully trained and approved, which in turn, gives the end user a competitive choice and quality assurance.

Over the last 20 years, Gent has been on the forefront with product innovations and industry firsts. We recently launched the SAFE system which is a fully engineered solution for buildings, allowing you to bridge the gap between residential and landlord’s fire alarm systems in High Risk Residential Buildings.

This year, we are delighted to be the first brand in Honeywell to launch Connected Life Safety Services (CLSS) which places connectivity at the heart of fire safety, providing real-time visibility to enhance timely, accurate decision-making. CLSS gives you deep insight into maintenance portfolio. 

Speaking to Donald McFarlane, Honeywell Sales Director for West Europe, he said 'When I was involved in the original set up of the Gent 24 Network 20 years ago, the aim was to become the number 1 supplier in the Fire Industry and I firmly believe that is the position we have held for many years. We have achieved this by working with a strong and loyal set of Approved Industry Accredited Partners, most of who have been with us for the majority of our 20-year history.’’

He continued, ‘‘One major change we have seen over the past 20 years, is that we previously only used to sell Fire Systems. Fast forward to our current portfolio and an important part of our growth has come from expanding our range of products associated with Fire Systems in buildings (Voice, ASD, EVCS, Paging & Central Battery Units).We are all excited about the new innovation Honeywell Gent is working on which we believe will continue to make us the industry leader''

Today, Gent 24 includes 12 SI's who have been with us from the very start; CamAlarms Limited, Cook Fire & Security Ltd, Cormeton Electronics Ltd, G4S Fire & Security Systems (UK), Honeywell Building Solutions, Kingfisher Fire & Security, Marlowe Fire & Security Limited, Northern Security Alarms Ltd, PWP Fire & Security, Rapid Fire Services Ltd, Sovereign Fire & Security Ltd and SPIE Scotshield Limited.

Thanks to everyone who has made the past 20 years a great success, and we look forward to the next 20 years!
