What have been some of Safe Life’s major achievements over the past year?

The main objective of Safe Life is to provide innovative services and technological solutions by ensuring the safety of its customers. We have provided new services and innovative solutions in 2012 by enlarging our activities. The establishment of foreign business relations has helped us to propose innovations to our customers. Ensuring the safety systems for major projects such as Tofiq Bahramov Stadium, Saadet Palace, and the Winter Boulevard demonstrates our professional approach. For example, the Winter Boulevard, which is located on Fizuli Street, is an unprecedented project in Azerbaijan and in the CIS region, and involved the construction of closed parking. The parking lot will cover a 14,000-sqm area and will be two stories high. The project will be finished in May 2013. Safe Life also supplies and installs Schrack Seconet fire alarm systems, Samsung Techwin camera control systems, and TOA professional sound systems. In addition, Safe Life installs BSH Luft ventilation and smoke extraction systems, a water-based fire-extinguishing system from Tyco International, and a navigation system called MultiGuide for our projects.

What is the target market for your products?

Safety is one of the main demands of our clients. Our target market comprises not only business organizations, but also end users. Our services and products are used by several different companies and organizations—everyone needs to ensure their safety.

The middle class is becoming increasingly larger in Azerbaijan. Is demand for Safe Life products increasing accordingly?

The prosperity of the country’s economy, coupled with increasing interest in new technology, influences people’s desire to improve their quality of life and safety in their daily lives. These changes will significantly influence our activities, as Safe Life serves various categories of society and safety.

“Safety is one of the main demands of our clients.”

What is the current investment climate for those wishing to invest in security systems in Azerbaijan?

The internal and external policy of Azerbaijan encourages the improvement of different areas of the economy. The increasing global promotion and organization of international events in the country positively influences the development process and improves infrastructure. Political stability and economic development have also created a favorable environment for investment and have increased the value of business here.

What is your medium-term outlook for Safe Life?

Safe Life will continue to provide new services and innovations for ensuring safety and security. We are working to increase and enlarge our activities and cooperate with world-renowned brands. Our previous experience, cooperation with major brands, and the provision of innovative services offer our company an opportunity to serve the population professionally in both present and future projects.
