21st Century deal for CCTV sales and support

Besides new buses, deal sees support of existing systems in Abellio fleet

21st Century Technology has announced a three-year systems and services contract with Abellio that will see it supply and install CCTV and associated communications technology on all of the group’s new buses and provide technical support for its existing fleet.

The value of the contract is expected to be around £2.5m, depending on the number of new buses added over the period. The first order for 23 has recently been received.

Says Mark Wallace, Abellio Group Procurement Manager: “We have chosen 21st Century based on its innovative approach to supporting and upgrading all of our on-board systems. It will provide a real boost for our UK bus operations.”

Adds Russ Singleton, 21st Century CEO: “We are delighted that Abellio has chosen 21st Century to provide new systems, upgrades and ongoing support services for its bus fleet based in and around central London.

“From our Croydon operations centre, we are ideally placed to respond quickly as we have replacement equipment, spares and component stocks along with technical training and support facilities.”
