Optelecom-NKF changes name in US to TKH Security Solutions USA

As a result of its recent merger with Dutch company TKH Group, surveillance solutions manufacturer Optelecom-NKF said Friday that it is renaming the company.

Effective April 1, the company’s U.S. offices will be renamed TKH Security Solutions USA, while its offices in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) market will now be known as Siqura, the brand name of nearly all of the company surveillance products.

The company’s headquarters will also be relocated to Gouda in the Netherlands.

"In becoming a member of TKH Group and giving our company two different names, we are able to promote Optelecom-NKF’s promising potential in ways that better ensure the success of our customers," said the company’s CEO Tom Overwijn in a statement. "TKH Security Solutions USA will be an accessible portal through which the entire range of solutions comprised in the TKH security sector will become available in the Americas. Throughout the rest of the world, the now well-known Siqura name will continue to safeguard and endorse our longstanding commitment to quality and reliable surveillance solutions that meet the specific needs of our customers and partners."

The company said that business will continue as usual through this transition period and will not disrupt operations for its customers.
