Strengthening its leading foothold in the Benelux market for temporary outdoor surveillance, while expanding into Germany and other countries.

Since its founding in 2010, BouWatch has grown to become the market leading provider of temporary security solutions for outdoor locations, e.g. construction sites, industrial infrastructure, events or locations where high value goods need to be kept safe and secure. BouWatch developed its own mobile security mast equipped with smart cameras, energy supply as well as the characteristic green lights. BouWatch provides for the connectivity between the camera mast and its own alarm management centre, where incoming alerts are registered, analysed and verified continuously, and from where, if necessary, follow-up services are dispatched.

Nordian and the management team acquired Bouwatch with the goal to become the international market leader in new markets, starting in Germany, whilst strengthening its market leading position in The Netherlands, by further improving its offering and brand name.
