The company, which part of the Extreme CCTV group, is well known for producing the robust MIC1, or ‘Metal Mickey’, CCTV camera series developed to provide flexible solutions for hostile environments.
James Smith, Forward Vision’s marketing manager says, “The move is consistent with planned growth and the new building provides the space in which to expand our research & development, servicing and product management teams. In short, this will allow us to provide an enhanced service to customers and reduce lead times for product development, servicing/repairs and manufacture”.
Peter Beare, managing director - EMEA for the Extreme Group says, “Most significantly, our new R&D facilities at Church Crookham allow Extreme to continue to accelerate engineering developments and grow Forward Vision as a Centre of Excellence for mechanical products.
“We have attracted a loyal customer base of leading British security consultants, installers and end-users who specify the Metal Mickey on performance and versatility. This investment in an expanded R&D team and facilities at Church Crookham ensures that Forward Vision continues to innovate new products - such as the recent collaboration with FLIR on the new MIC1-412 Thermal range - that create further opportunities for growth."

About Forward Vision
Hampshire based Forward Vision is acknowledged as the UK’s leading fully functional Pan Tilt & Zoom (PTZ) camera manufacturer. Proven over a five-year successful track record, the Forward Vision product range is specified by top security consultants for its ease of use, leading design and ability to deliver outstanding imaging results for virtually any application - including some of the harshest environments in the world.
Forward Vision’s capability for meeting the exacting requirements of today’s security professionals has led to the development of the company’s MIC1, or “Metal Mickey” series of cameras. Available in a variety of versions including aluminium, stainless steel, underwater, ATEX certified (explosion proof), static, infrared, public address and thermal; they form the most comprehensive range of best-fit PTZ cameras available on the market today.
On July 31, 2006 Forward Vision was acquired by Canadian based Extreme CCTV, a world-renowned manufacturer of high quality security solutions used in a wide range of markets. This move has allowed accelerated product research and development, which is still driven by Forward Vision’s three founding engineers who are dedicated to ensuring the needs of today’s security professionals are met without compromise.
Forward Vision’s UK-based manufacturing facilities are certified to ISO 9001:2000, and are affiliated with Derwent Systems Limited of Newcastle, UK, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Extreme CCTV Inc.
