Orlando, FL – April 10, 2012 – Hilton Worldwide (“Hilton”) has signed an agreement naming Safemark Systems, the hospitality industry's leading provider of guest room safes, as one of three preferred suppliers of electronic safes for all of its international hotels. The agreement builds on a successful relationship Safemark and Hilton have enjoyed since 2006, when Safemark first began providing electronic safes at Hilton’s domestic hotels as a preferred vendor.
“Hilton Worldwide is pleased to continue its long standing strategic partnership with Safemark Systems on a global basis to supply the expanding Hilton Worldwide portfolio. Safemark’s position in the industry, and its global reach, allows Hilton to align its international estate with a manufacturer of quality security equipment and service to enhance our guest’s experience and bring value to our brands,” said William Kornegay, Senior Vice President of Hilton Supply Management. “The Safemark relationship is indicative of Hilton Worldwide’s commitment to creating lasting and mutually beneficial strategic supply partnerships.”
Hilton Worldwide has become the fastest growing major global hospitality company with 3,800 hotels and timeshare properties, with 630,000 rooms in 88 countries. Its hotel brands include: Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Hotels, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton, and Hilton Grand Vacations. As a result of this new agreement, Safemark will now provide Hilton Worldwide properties with access to the widest selection of guest room safes designed with the latest technology advances and exceptional craftsmanship.
