Came BPT: Bolstering commercial property security
CIPN chats to Riccardo Battaini, MD: Came BPT about the company’s new Johannesburg office and how its venture into gate automation completes its commercial property security service offering.
“Came BPT is a distributor of security products; we are a subsidiary of an Italian group called Came,” explains Battaini. “We distribute nearly every security product for commercial property, excluding alarms. We have been in SA since 1968 so this our 50thanniversary; the need for new premises came about as the old premises were dated and we wanted to move into an area that is better served in terms of traffic and customer access, with a consolidated, reorganised space.”
Came BPT is proud of its 50thanniversary and it’s a happy coincidence that the company has moved into its new offices in Johannesburg, poised to bolster its service offering in terms of logistics and efficiency. With its four main branches in Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria, and its new office in Johannesburg, access to cutting edge security solutions for commercial and industrial property has never been quicker or easier.
“The founder of the Company (known as TRI) started in 1968 distributing intercom systems. Then after many years in the industry, we became a market leader in audio and video intercoms. In 2012, Came Group acquired our company and together we have developed gate automation products specifically designed for SA, with battery back-up, speed and features all modified for the unique demands of the country. In the last two years we also entered the parking systems field, and have recently sold our first parking system in Cape Town. The Group’s parking division, Came Parkare, is ranked fifth in the world,” Battaini says.
Came BPT South Africa also distributes CCTV and access control systems, finishing off our product range with electric fencing from a local manufacturer. The company is active with its own brand of CCTV called Vision BPT, in addition to distributing the Israeli access control system called Rosslare which has its factory in China.
“Came BPT is well-positioned to offer a total security solution for commercial property. Our intercom and audio visual systems are now IP-based. All commercial property developments have IP networks, with which we are able to seamlessly integrate and plug-in our entry panels and audio and video receivers.”
A successful commercial property must have high quality customer traffic and access control systems, and Came BPT’s, gate automation, intercom, barrier, access control as well as CCTV products are set to take the commercial property security sector to the next level. The investment in the company’s new Johannesburg office is a visible step in that direction, and Battaini is confident in the exponential growth of the company.
