From 1 January 2022, Kooi Security Deutschland GmbH and Kooi Security Austria GmbH will be managed as a strategic unit in the DACH region. The specialist for temporary mobile video surveillance and early fire detection has its headquarters in the Netherlands and is active in 22 European countries, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with around 3,000 surveillance units. With the new DACH organisation, the company is setting the course for further rapid growth in the German-speaking region.

The national subsidiaries in Germany and Austria with currently six locations and the company’s own alarm centre in Schortens (Lower Saxony) will remain unchanged. The two previous managing directors Mike Jürgens (Kooi Security Deutschland GmbH) and Frank Käferböck (Kooi Security Austria GmbH) will jointly take over the management of both national companies and will in future steer the further expansion in the DACH region. As co-founder, Frank Käferböck already managed the business of ArgosGuard GmbH, which was taken over by Kooi.

“Our previous structure has emerged from the company’s development over the last few years,” explains Mike Jürgens. “The prerequisite for successfully securing our customers and incorporating ArgosGuard, which has been part of the Kooi Group since 2020, was created by Frank Käferböck in his role as Technical Director. In addition, we have a great team at our side in both countries, which we will successively expand further and also extend towards Switzerland. In order to be able to work more efficiently strategically and operationally in view of our rapid growth and at the same time to be closer to our customers, we are merging the two national companies into a joint, powerful DACH organisation.”

Customer service will continue to be provided via the regional locations. “Security solutions require competent advice and trust, which is why we attach great importance to being represented locally in the regions, and we will continue to expand this presence in the future,” says Mike Jürgens. “Wherever our solutions for temporary mobile camera security and early fire detection are used, our customers can rely on competent support.”
