BCS has developed a global manufacturing footprint that is scalable to support all sizes of projects in our key markets and draws on manufacturing sites in New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Malaysia and China. We offer a fully integrated range of well engineered hardware backed by a bespoke engineering capability and comprehensive warranty and maintenance options.
BCS has its origins as a controls and automation specialist (as Berill Control Systems back in 1993) and nobody understands better the requirements for effective operational controls systems for modern baggage handling systems large or small.
As an industry leader within the global BHS services sectors, you can be assured the latest automation control system development, programming, design skills, and methodologies are applied to your project. When you link this domain knowledge with our proprietary Sym3 Virtual Commissioning tool that allows us to factory test systems prior to site work as part of a comprehensive approach to risk management, then working with BCS means confidence for all stakeholders that your project will be delivered and working as planned and on time.
BCS understands the requirements for intuitive and scalable BHS operational management systems. As the baggage handling system is mission critical in any airport, the operational software and IT must be utterly reliable, scalable for growth and deliver maximum operational visualisation and efficiency. Unlike many BHS companies we do not rely on "cookie cutter" third-party software and have developed innovative and revolutionary proprietary software products as part of the operational management platform, which consists of:
BCS has partnered with SITA to deliver an enhanced and world-class solution for dedicated or common-use bag drop solutions based on our BAGgate and BAGgate Lite hardware solutions that enhances airport capacity and provides sub-30 second bag processing for passengers.
