Fabrica Carioca de Catalisadores

When leading oil refining industry expert Fabrica Carioca de Catalisadores decided to upgrade the security system at its 44-acre Brazilian headquarters, the company worked with Tyco to integrate new access control and video management products which ultimately resulted in an easier-to-use, more robust security system.

Based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Fabrica Carioca de Catalisadores S.A. (FCC) is a joint venture that joins the tradition and know-how of two world giants of the oil and petrochemical areas - Petrobras and Albemarle Corporation. Founded in 1985, this technology company engages in the production and supply of petroleum refining catalysts and additives for the oil refining industry in South America. With a 2009 revenue of BRL 332 million, FCC holds the leading equity in the market of catalysts for the oil refining industry in the world.

A company with this much market share needs a state-of-the-art security system. So, in 2009, FCC knew it was time to update their access control and event management system. Working closely with Tyco, the company decided to upgrade to Software House's C•CURE® 9000 Access Control Solution. The decision was based on the fact that the new C•CURE® 9000 offers numerous benefits, including an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI), reliable technology, compliance with IT policies and requirements, and the ability to easily create numerous types of reports. But perhaps the most important factor in the decision was the ability to fully integrate the C•CURE® 9000 with FCCs existent Intellex® Digital Video Management system.
