Agility Technologies Corporation (ATC) manufacturer of FirstLook360, the world’s first wireless 360° spherical rescue search camera, announced that the company has partnered with Vogt-CTE to establish operations in Europe. It is the company’s goal to better serve its growing number of European based users and dealer partners. By establishing a local presence, ATC Europe will help to minimize delivery times, decrease shipping costs, and provide sales and service in local time zones.
“Our expansion into Europe marks a milestone moment in the growth of ATC and for FirstLook360’s adoption by European based emergency services,” said ATC Chief Marketing Officer, Matt Fiddes. “ATC Europe will allow us to forge new relationships and continue to build our brand in the European rescue community.”
The two founders of Vogt-CTE, Jürg Vogt and Marc Hersberger have over 30 years of experience in the Urban Search and Rescue, Military, Border Guard, Police and Fire Rescue markets. In addition to the provided sales and after-sales service, Vogt-CTE will offer local training support for our growing European dealer network and end user customers.
“We are very proud to include FirstLook360 as another innovative product in our portfolio,” said Jürg Vogt, Sales Director. Marc Hersberger, COO adds: “We are convinced that the unique selling propositions of the FL360, the future-oriented thinking of our Canadian partner ATC, and the market knowledge of our European country representatives can create a sustainable basis for the continuing success of our first responders. We look forward to developing synergies and creating real value for our highly respected customers.”
ATC Europe will be headquartered in Steffisburg, Switzerland, with an additional facility in Germany. Both locations will provide logistics to customers in the European Union and non-EU countries. The expansion will be led by Marc Hersberger (Vogt-CTE) and Matt Fiddes (ATC).
