C&C Partners in Poland have realised their 10th WinGuard project

Congratulations to our CWI partner C&C Partners in Poland for the realisation of their 10th WinGuard project! Our collaboration started in 2018 and has constantly moved forward since then. C&C Partners are not only acting as a certified WinGuard integrator offering sales & service to end customers, but also support us with regard to the additional testing of new interfaces for the Polish market. For example, integration of the recently developed interface to the Integra 256 system by Satel was additionally verified by C&C Partners. We would like to thank C&C Partners for the excellent collaboration so far and look forward to a lot of upcoming joint projects.
