NAPCO Eyes Middle East for Sales Expansion

AMITYVILLE, N.Y. – For some of its new customers, NAPCO Security Systems Inc. is traveling far beyond the borders of the United States. The electronic security manufacturer is entering a joint venture with a trading and investment firm to sell and distribute its products throughout the Middle East.

NAPCO Gulf Security LLC is a joint venture with Gulf Associates Inc., which advises international corporations on trade representation and distribution in the Middle East and North Africa. Gulf has been extensively involved in helping to establish U.S. companies and products in post-war Iraq, among other Middle East countries, according to the company’s Web site.

“Over the years of exporting products to the region, we have seen a huge potential for growth to develop, especially due to the area’s heightened security needs,” says NAPCO Chairman, President and CEO Dick Soloway. “We are confident that we have the right partner to help NAPCO expand its reach into the region.”
