Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi has signed a five-year Strategic Co-operation Agreement with China Rail Chen Bang Technology Ltd (CRCBT). The agreement will see TDSi’s security systems installed as part of engineering projects for China Rail throughout the People’s Republic of China.

TDSi’s managing director John Davies joined representatives from CRCBT and China Rail for the signing of the agreement at CRCBT’s headquarters in Beijing.

Reflecting on this significant contract, Davies told Risk UK: “This agreement is the culmination of extensive negotiations and hard work between CRCBT, TDSi and China Rail designed to provide the railways operator with the latest integrated security and access control solutions.”

Davies continued: “CRCBT is China Rail Engineering’s group solutions and delivery provider, executing all low voltage systems engineering projects for the railway network across the People’s Republic of China. Our solutions will be providing security and safeguarding the transportation links used by millions of travellers each year. Naturally, TDSi is very honoured and proud to be awarded this important and high profile contract.”

In addition, TDSi has accredited CRCBT as its latest Platinum Partner, recognising the technical expertise, close working relationship and co-operation shared between the two organisations.

Elaborating on that working relationship, Mr Chen (general manager of CRCBT) stated: “CRCBT required a strategic security technology partner in order to expand work on Rail and Metro projects across the country as well as the proposed high-speed rail activities, so this arrangement is a vital component of our planned expansion. We’re excited to become a Platinum Partner of TDSi and to be working even more closely with the company.”

Scope for ongoing projects

The agreement with CRCBT is a significant one for UK-based TDSi. “In the first year of this agreement,” enthused John Davies, “it will account for 3% of TDSi’s total turnover, rising to at least 6% during the second year. CRCBT plans for a 25% growth in our OEM agreement, year on year, for the next five years.”

With 20,000 stations on the China Rail network there’s certainly huge scope for ongoing projects. “We’re even assisting with security for a new China Rail headquarters project in Beijing,” urged Davies, ” as well as a new media centre, staff accommodation and medical facilities. This is a very exciting juncture for ourselves and all the stakeholders involved with the expansion of these railway networks in China.”
