North Rhine-Westphalia’s status as a leading location for digital industries was recently enhanced by another investment.
The Geneva-based Securitas Verisure Group launched a German subsidiary, Verisure Deutschland GmbH, which will operate a sales and monitoring center for digital security systems in Ratingen. The workforce of over 70 employees in this town northeast of Düsseldorf will also reportedly climb to roughly 200 by the end of 2019.
Verisure is a leading provider of professionally monitored security solutions for homes and businesses with nearly 3 million customers in 14 countries across Europe and Latin America. Being on the ground in Germany will play a central role in the company’s international expansion effort, according to the German subsidiary’s CEO.
The settlement received assistance from NRW.INVEST, the state’s economic development agency, and federal economic development agency Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI).
