DALLAS – In conjunction with ASIS 2017, Axis Communications held a grand opening ceremony and ribbon-cutting event at its newest Axis Experience Center (AEC) in Irving, Texas. The 7,100-square-foot AEC features a 30-person training center and multiple state-of-the-art conference rooms, which can collectively hold up to 25 people.

The space features solutions in realistic demo areas for key vertical markets including retail, education, gaming and critical infrastructure. The space includes more than 60 Axis devices such as cameras, access control, audio, analytics and intercom.

“The opening of this AEC is taking us closer to our goal of bringing Axis solutions closer to our customers and partners,” says SSI Industry Hall of Famer Fredrik Nilsson, vice president, Americas, Axis Communications. “The Irving AEC symbolizes our growth and our vision of innovating for a smarter, safer world.

Security Sales & Integration editors were among the more than 150 attendees who were on hand for the official grand opening that took place on the first day of ASIS 2017, Sept. 26. Located at 433 E. Las Colinas Blvd., Suite 600, the facility will primarily serve as a hub for the 22 team members in the South Central Business Area, including 10 office-based employees. The South Central Business Area includes Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and southern Mississippi.

“I’m excited to be a part of the grand opening of the Irving AEC. I’ve been with Axis for more than nine years and have seen the company grow into what it is today,” says Steve Darragh, South Central Business Area director. “The opening of Axis’ sixth AEC in North America truly solidifies Axis as a leader in the industry.”

Axis’ other North American AEC locations are in California, Chicago, Mexico, Canada and the North American headquarters in Massachusetts. The company says it intends to open additional locations as well.
