Indanet becomes Synectics

Tuesday, 23 February 2016

Five years after its acquisition by AIM-listed Synectics plc, transport technology expert Indanet has officially come under the Synectics brand umbrella by changing its name to Synectics.

Trading as Synectic Systems GmbH, the Munich-based company will continue to provide tailored solutions to its established customer base, which includes major names in the German rail and public transport industry.

As Indanet, the company has already been contributing its specialist expertise to the group’s global transport security offering, utilising Synectics full suite of solutions and products.

The first German deployment of Synectics’ open command and control platform Synergy 3 in 2014 was a key milestone in this process, uniting global scope and local service, specialist skills and new applications under one strong, recognisable brand.

Fabian Hügle, Head of Technology said: “We have some incredibly deep technical knowledge, as well as close, long-standing relationships with major players in the German transport sector. Being a part of Synectics has unlocked some fantastic opportunities for the team here - to apply their knowledge to new sectors, access to in-house R&D for our customers, and develop global markets.”

Greg Alcorn, Divisional Director, Transport & Infrastructure, continues: “Synectics is a strong global brand, with specialist expertise where there is a critical need for security. We are delighted that Indanet, with its proud track-record in Germany, joins us as Synectics. This is a great opportunity to further develop our transport and infrastructure tailored solutions, capitalising on recent successes internationally like Jakarta airport in Indonesia, and combining them with tremendous local success in Berlin, Frankfurt and Nurnberg.”

Synectics will be exhibiting at Innotrans (hall 4.1, booth 310) 20-23 September in Berlin showcasing the depth, breadth and scale of its global transport integrated security management solutions – from on-vehicle through to wider transportation infrastructure hubs.
