The Harco Group, a Belgian company, was established in Brussels in 1989, as a Trading and Distribution organization supplying raw materials and chemicals to various industries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
An expansion was done in 2003 to Asia Pacific, followed by a second one in 2008 to Central and Latin America. In 2009, Harco Americas was established in New York and then moved to Las Vegas.
Over the years, Harco Group diversified their business activities into a wider range of sectors, to operate through 4 Divisions. One of those Divisions, namely HIS, was created in 2001, mainly for distribution of “Video Security and Surveillance” solutions and with the purpose of working on projects in the Middle East region and selling through resellers (B to B).
In 2004, the HIS Division took a new path by working on a different strategy, based on 3 pillars, to differentiate Harco from major players in the industry in the MENA region.
Harco’s Differentiation Strategy (3 Pillars)
1- Focused strategy on a specific range of high-end, non-competitive, complementary and diversified solutions within the IP CCTV segment, rather than just getting products and putting those on the shelf along with others.
2- Significant investment in personalized local presence.
3- Recruitment and development of technical ‘gurus’ in the IP CCTV industry so that Harco becomes a reference in this vertical across all the sales cycle such as site survey, system design, consultancy and pre and post-sales support.
Today, Harco is renowned for being a focused and successful distributor of pioneer solutions in the Video Surveillance arena in the MENA region, while relying on a wide channel of 150+ system integrators with a significant client base and employing people as fixed human resources providing local support and sales in this region.
Our mission at Harco HIS is to “Provide our customers with the best customized surveillance and security solutions coupled with a continued superior service leading to outstanding customer satisfaction and peace of mind”.
“Be recognized and lead the way in innovative solutions by being inside every place to be secured within the regions we serve.”
