Surveillance technology specialist Synectics Plc says it has sealed a “multi-million pound contract” to provide an integrated surveillance system for a new casino resort in Macau.
Synectic Systems (Macau) Ltd, the Macau unit of U.K.-based Synectics, will be providing security and video surveillance for the casino resort. The parent firm did not identify the property, but said in a Thursday press release it was one currently under construction by a major international gaming operator.
“Fulfilment of the contract is expected to begin in the next few months and be substantially complete by the end of the financial year,” the firm added.
The release did not provide specific financial details of the contract.
Synectics provides surveillance services to the gaming industry as well as to the oil and gas sector and to governments. Synectics’ services include design, delivery and management of “integrated security and surveillance systems”.
The firm has previously provided services to several casino properties in the Asia Pacific region. Past clients include MGM Macau; Solaire Resort and Casino in the Philippines; and a major Singapore-based client, according to Synectics.
“This major new contract confirms that our solutions are the preferred choice of some of the region’s premier gaming operators,” said Synectics chief executive, Paul Webb, in a statement.
The contract comes four months after Synectics opened a new office in Macau “to support gaming sector growth” in the Asia Pacific region.
“Our new Macau office will play a crucial role in our continued growth strategy by boosting our ability to offer technical support at a local level. The investment demonstrates our commitment to existing customers and to the Asia Pacific market as a whole,” said Mr Webb.
