ICT's strategic growth partnership with Advent Partners

The following is a message from our CEO and Founder, Hayden Burr, regarding today's announcement about investment by Advent Partners in ICT.

For the past 19 years, our vision at ICT has been to bring together unified access control, intruder detection and building automation all from one platform that is easy to use for both installers and end-users alike.  

As we continue this journey of innovation, I am excited to announce our partnership with Advent Partners as a strategic investor. Advent is a highly experienced investor in technology companies, bringing substantial knowledge and expertise, which will support the growth of the business globally and help accelerate the development of our leading integrated access control and security solutions. 

ICT will continue to be managed by the same leadership team, with myself remaining on as CEO. Our primary focus remains to deliver an exceptional customer experience and the highest quality solutions. You should expect only improvements in your experience with ICT, as was the mission from day one, as our customers and end-users remain the fundamental focus driving our innovative solutions forward.

ICT’s partnership with Advent will further support the following business strategies: 

  • Accelerating growth, with planned investment in resources and capabilities.
  • Continued commitment to in-house research and development, with teams dedicated to progressing market leading feature and integration projects.
  • Preserving our culture and our ongoing focus to operational excellence and customer service.

Should you have any questions about our partnership with Advent, please do not hesitate to contact me, or your usual ICT representative.
