Description of the Business

Synectics plc is a leader in the design, delivery and management of integrated security and surveillance systems for the world's most demanding security environments.

Our systems are based on core proprietary technology, in particular system integration and command and control software. This technology is adapted for the specific needs of our target customer sectors, and provides fundamental differentiation from mainstream suppliers in the wider electronic security market.

We look to develop long-term strategic partnership with customers that have security and surveillance needs of sufficient complexity and scale that they value the sophistication of Synectics' capabilities and expertise.
