ATG Access, a global innovator of road blockers, bollards and barriers, has announced a new partnership with Singapore-based ESCO Pte, that will strengthen its position as a leading supplier of hostile vehicle mitigation solutions across Asia.

The three-year agreement will grant exclusive rights to ESCO to manufacture, supply, install and maintain Haydock-based ATG Access equipment, enabling ATG to strengthen its customer support and product offering in the region.

ESCO has extensive experience in hostile vehicle mitigation, with one of its directors playing a key role in Singapore’s adoption of British security standards and measures more than 10 years ago.

As a result of this work, Singapore has led the way in its commitment to hostile vehicle mitigation with other Asian countries following suit, making it one of the most active security markets in the world.

ATG has already built a strong reputation as a trusted supplier of innovative physical security solutions in Asia over the past decade and was recently selected to provide the perimeter protection to 28 electrical substations for Singapore Power.

The new agreement will allow ATG to continue to dedicate its focus in the region, servicing the market more cost effectively and with greater continuity.

Gavin Hepburn, ATG managing director, said: “This partnership marks a really important moment in our growth as a business.

“The Asian market has developed hugely in recent years, and we have worked on a number of exciting, high profile projects in the region.

“By working closely with ESCO, and drawing on the wealth of experience within the team, we will be able to increase our presence across Asia and develop stronger relationships with existing and potential clients.”

Sanjeev Bhat, director, hostile mitigation from ESCO Pte, said: “Esco offers a robust suite of physical measures that helps organisations protect their infrastructure from hostile threats.

“The strategic partnership with ATG allows us to offer a comprehensive range of products for a much wider range of applications to a larger customer base.

“We are happy to facilitate ATG’s presence and position in Asia leveraging on our regional presence and local manufacturing facilities.”
