Press release from: Firepro Systems Pvt.Ltd

Bangalore, 26 March, 2007: Leading Indian Fire Protection, Security and Building Management Systems group Firepro Systems has taken its first international step in the Asia-Pacific region today by officially launching its Australian operations, headquartered in Melbourne.

The launch was officiated by Victoria’s Minister for Information and Communication Technology, The Hon. Tim Holding MP, at the Victorian Investment Centre.

“I am delighted to welcome Firepro to Victoria. Firepro’s expansion here is testament to Victoria’s thriving IT sector, and their plans for expansion further still means even better news for jobs and innovation in Melbourne,” he said.

“The Victorian Government Business Office in Bangalore has undertaken a great deal of the groundwork for this move and I am pleased to see the results already coming through from that office, set up just last year,” he added.

Firepro, known for its cutting-edge approach to fire protection and security, specialises in the design, installation and maintenance of fire safety, electronic security and building management systems.

The company has particular expertise in providing fire and safety solutions to the ICT sector, and its extensive list of clients includes multinationals such as Microsoft, Oracle, Motorola, Lucent and Intel. In Australia, the company will target both the government and corporate sectors.

Speaking on the occasion, Firepro Founder and Managing Director, Mr N. S. Narendra said, "the establishment of a Melbourne office will be the first step in expanding the business throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific". Australia offers Firepro a strong market to launch its operations and is an ideal nation for the company to expand its interests into other parts of the region. With the assistance of Invest Victoria, Firepro will set about its task of becoming a market leader in Australia".

“Our aim is to expand across multiple Australian locations within three years, and to have established offices across other Asia-Pacific markets within five years", he added.

Firepro has already secured a contract with the Victorian Department of Education and Training for providing services required for the Department’s hydraulic fire safety program.

The company has successfully completed the upgrade of the hydraulic fire safety system at an eastern suburbs primary school and is currently in the project initialisation phase to upgrade similar systems in regional Victoria.

Firepro’s decision to expand into Australia, and into Victoria in particular, has been in part the result of groundwork laid out by the Victorian Government Business Office (VGBO) in Bangalore. Opened in 2006, this office was established to strengthen business networks between Victoria and India. Firepro’s launch in Melbourne today is tangible evidence of the VGBO’s early success.

From its operations facility in North Melbourne, Firepro plans to employ 15 staff within 12 months, across management, trade and apprentice roles. This figure will increase as demand for Firepro services grows.
