Segway and BCM Solutions team up to target the NASCAR market
The companies will exhibit together in Booth #13 at the NASCAR Security Summit in Concord, NC, from January 6-8, 2013.
BCM Solutions will deploy Segway Patrollers beginning with the 2013 and 2014 NASCAR and
IndyCar race seasons to enhance its overall security efforts. Across all racing series, each season includes nearly 100 races throughout the U.S., says a news release issued by Segway on Jan. 3.
“During each race week, we deploy well over 300 security and management team members that are responsible for securing race track properties that can sprawl across hundreds of acres,
feature 1 to 2.5 miles of track, have dozens of participating race teams with multi-million dollar assets, and draw crowds in excess of two hundred thousand people,” said Tim Westhoff, vice president of sales and marketing for BCM Solutions, Inc. “Our relationship with Segway, which has enabled us to add the Segway Patroller to our arsenal of security tools, makes great sense. The Patroller will instantly improve the visibility, mobility and productivity of our security supervisors.”
“We are pleased with the consumer exposure the Segway Patroller will receive,” said Chip MacDonald, director of global police and government business at Segway. “More importantly, we are incredibly proud to support BCM’s efforts to enhance public safety at racing events. Their success will continue to justify Segway Patroller deployments in markets, like sporting event security, all across the globe.”
The Patroller was conceived based on specific input from experienced public safety professionals to help them meet their very specific needs and empower them to do their job in a better, faster and more mobile manner. It has been deployed in more than 1,500 police departments and public safety organizations across the globe, said Segway.
