Orbis has had a very successful strategic partnership with Optosafe Ireland over recent years, supporting the business to deliver technology solutions to its customers in both Republic of Ireland and the UK.

The business has grown successfully under the direction of founder and MD, Ed Mulligan. He has had a long-established and successful career in leading security and monitoring businesses over the last 20 years, and will continue to lead Optosafe Ireland as part of the enlarged Orbis group.

Orbis Protect CEO, Ben Howard commented: “I am delighted to welcome Optosafe Ireland into the Orbis group. What sets the business apart from its competitors, is its responsiveness, attention to detail and excellence in customer service.
