Integration of GJD and ALT’s resources – a strong market proposition

The GJD Group is pleased to announce that with effect from 1st October 2014 it will increase its shareholding in Advanced LED Technology from 51% to 100%. This is seen as a very positive move and sees the integration of GJD and ALT’s resources at the Group HQ in Heywood, Greater Manchester.

Manchester based GJD and Advanced LED Technology, originally based in Newcastle are brilliantly matched in their complementary technologies. GJD has a strong brand and positioning in the global market with its range of external detectors used for triggering CCTV recordings, acting as pre-alarms and controlling security lighting. Advanced LED Technology designs, develops and manufactures a comprehensive, innovative range of infrared and white light LED illuminators predominantly used for the professional CCTV sector.

GJD detectors trigger CCTV systems which need good quality infrared or white lighting to ‘see’. The Clarius range of products was the first joint offering with high performance infrared LEDs designed to provide class leading performance, long life and ultra low maintenance. Incorporating the latest surface mount LEDs with enhanced optical output and outstanding reliability enables Clarius illuminators to deliver excellent night‐time images.

The combination of detection and illumination is a strong market proposition. However, the synergy between the two companies runs beyond the market potential, with both being committed to product innovation, quality and service.

Mark Tibbenham, Managing Director of GJD comments “It has taken a long time for GJD to find a partner that shares our vision on quality, innovation and growth. We are very excited about the future and the expansion of our business”.

A spearhead for growth, this positions GJD at the forefront of technology, matching GJD’s detectors with ALT’s Clarius illuminators across global markets.

This move forms part of GJD’s overall strategic marketing plan to become a global supplier of high quality, state-of-the-art, value for money, security systems and associated devices.

As GJD celebrates its 31st year, the investment in R&D and commitment to utilising the latest technology has seen the company grow into a multi-million pound global market leading business.  GJD’s strong and continuous growth pattern results from an ardent philosophy of producing consistently reliable equipment coupled with a dedication to after-sales support.
