Cemtrex Announces $1.2 Million Upgrade Order in Advanced Technologies Segment
Corrections Facility in Oregon to Upgrade Security Surveillance System
Brooklyn, NY, March 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- - Cemtrex Inc. (NASDAQ: CETX, CETXP), a technology company driving innovation in Internet of Things (IoT), security, machine vision & artificial intelligence, and augmented & virtual reality, has received a $1.2 million order through its Advanced Technology Segment from a large correctional facility, and current customer, in Oregon to upgrade its security technology system with new hardware and software.
The enterprise-class system installation includes Vicon’s state-of-the-art end-to-end video surveillance security system and a large increase in storage hardware. The order was received and fulfilled in this second quarter of the calendar year. Details of the customer were not provided due to confidentiality agreements in place.
“This significant order from a major customer continues to validate our technology and reaffirms the upward growth trend for our Advanced Technologies Segment,” said Saagar Govil, Chairman and CEO of Cemtrex. “Vicon is expanding rapidly to address escalating demand as end-users seek a reliable source of video surveillance and access control technologies fit for today’s highly dynamic environment. Vicon offers customers a complete solution with the ability to monitor LPR, access control and video management all from Valerus. Our comprehensive view of information on a centralized platform helps integrators save on costs, and gives end-users a singular place for alarms, making responses faster, more manageable, and easier to report upon.
“With the first quarter of the calendar year typically the slowest period for this segment, this order represents a strong indicator of market improvement for the segment. Vicon continues to experience elevated demand for its security portfolio, although gross margins were impacted in the most recent quarter due to supply chain issues and increased shipping costs. We are aggressively combatting this challenge with our manufacturing and logistics suppliers to maintain our normal gross margin trajectory. As an internationally recognized brand in corrections and security we expect additional Vicon orders ahead, driving revenue and momentum,” concluded Govil.
Since 1967, Vicon has been a leading manufacturer of security surveillance systems. Today we are focused on providing solutions that have been engineered not just for performance and features, but for simplicity in deployment, operation and maintenance. Vicon’s end-to-end security surveillance portfolio consists of the full range of solutions including Valerus, an open platform browser-based VMS; VAX, a cutting edge access control solution; a broad range of IP cameras including the NDAA-compliant Roughneck series; and plug-and-play network video recorders.
