Guy Bocchini is the new Managing Director.

‘Detectomat is changing’ – with this statement, we started the realignment and restructuring of Detectomat GmbH in 2019, following the integration into the DEF network. A journey with fixed milestones and targets which should position our business to be efficient, attractive, flexible and sustainable within the individual markets, thereby naturally leading to noticeable benefits for our customers and employees. The high value of this strategy is strongly supported by our new Managing Director Guy Bocchini within the DEF network.

Guy Bocchini has been active in the management of the DEF network since 2015. During the past year, a division was set up within the DEF network, which focuses exclusively on the sale of products through fire alarm specialists in Germany and is also headed up by Guy Bocchini. This group of companies includes companies such as Detectomat, Simax, Sonax and Bouyer.

To ensure that this expertise is implemented directly and smoothly, especially for the requirements in the German market, Guy Bocchini has now also been appointed Managing Director of Detectomat Systems GmbH and Simax electronics GmbH by Philippe Lécuyer (President of the DEF network). At Detectomat Systems, Guy is replacing the role of Philippe Lécuyer and, together with Gangolf Luerweg, taking over management of Detectomat Systems GmbH and our new company, Simax electronics GmbH.

With the takeover of Simax electronics GmbH by Detectomat Systems, we have expanded the existing product range to include voice alarm systems, strengthened the position of our company as a manufacturer of high-quality safety products for the fire alarm specialist market, and tailored processes to the requirements in Germany.

This is guaranteed to help with the optimisation of product development, deliverability, and ensure collaborative dialogue with our fire alarm specialists and planners for market-oriented system solutions.

A warm welcome to Guy Bocchini!
