CIAS Security, a global manufacturer of physical perimeter security systems based in Italy, announced the company’s extended expansion into North America and Latin America. 

“While we have been exporting our systems into the United States for the past 14 years, we felt the need for a full-time presence in these very important markets,” said Raffaele De Astis, executive managing director, CIAS Security. “It will allow us to more effectively penetrate the Americas by expanding our reach and connecting on a daily basis with strategic partners and customers here.” 

With U.S. headquarters and a warehousing facility in Miami, the expansion plan will include an additional location in Montreal with full-time staff. 

CIAS specializes in the manufacture of high security outdoor intrusion sensors (microwave barriers and fence detection systems), which are installed in prisons, utilities, nuclear power plants and industrial sites in the U.S.

The company said it is also expanding its network of security integrators, installers and distributors in North America and will more aggressively pursue the vertical markets of energy, corrections and transportation, with a particular focus on airport sites. 

“This expansion into the Americas will strengthen CIAS's position as an industry leader in perimeter and outdoor security systems worldwide,” De Astis said. “It will further increase our market share in the USA, Canada and the Americas.” 

He added that technical support to integrators (and end users) is a priority in this strategic move. The expanded entry into North America will take place over the next few months.  

“Our existing customers will continue to receive the same high quality of service which they have come to expect," De Astis said. “We look forward to growing our customer base and serving this market with even greater efficiently and responsiveness.”  

CIAS will be exhibiting at GSX 2023 in Dallas at booth no. 1518.
