Paul Schelhaas and Simon Legrand named global influencers.

Updated: Aug 12

Paul has turned Sunstone into a multi-million pound global designer, manufacturer and supplier of solar powered security systems. He was instrumental in the design and innovation of Sunstone Systems IP Solar IP CCTV System and as such could easily have been included on the tech leaders list too. As it is, he’s a worthy inclusion in this list because Sunstone has won plaudits for the quality of its installations, notably in remote locations and extreme weather conditions.

Running entirely on renewable energy, the Solar CCTV System enables CCTV, Gas Detection and many other solutions within minutes of arriving on site. The unit is designed, engineered and built in the UK, and “really does fly the flag for British innovation” in the words of one of many admirers.

Sunstone won won Project of the Year at the Security & Fire Excellence Awards for the successful deployment of the Solar CCTV System in Kazakhstan for Chevron for the Tengiz oilfield in Kazakhstan and in the UK for Highways England. It also triumphed in the Small to Medium Security Installer of the Year category.

One of Sunstone’s admirer’s wrote: “This gives them a security system which flexible, especially in the construction environment, as systems can be moved to monitor workers or assets. Also, this system can be adapted to provide wireless backhaul, which means the SICS can extend their wireless network into remote areas and connect buildings (or well heads) for data transmission or surveillance.”

“An innovator [whose] approach to finding reliable, flexible and durable solutions for difficult situations is fully focused on end-user requirements” “Great inventor, great CEO, Great company leader. He believes in his company, in his products and in his employees. Its a pleasure to work for such an up and coming company at the beginning of its very long and successful journey “Paul has transformed a small UK business into a recognized reliable international security partner for one of the largest oil companies in the world bringing a British-made quality, innovative and nature-friendly product to different parts of the world. […] unafraid to redefine what is possible, deserves to be recognised as a trailblazer, and rewarded for the positive effect of the risks he has taken. “Paul’s entrepreneurial spirit allows him to stand out from the crowd. He is leading the security industry to change the way products are developed. […] Always focuses on the exact needs of the clients and finds solutions that are not over-engineered but are robust enough to operate in harsh and challenging environments. […] Despite the massive growth and development of the business he has retained ownership and leadership of a committed team of employees. He is passionate about innovation and solution-focused in all his approaches. […] His ideas are changing the way large organisations think about meeting their security needs.”

“Simon and Sunstone continuously take real world issues and reinvent innovative solutions. They are a ‘can do’ organisation and Simon is particularly responsive to all manner of enquiries and discussions, both in person and via social media. Simon and Sunstone certainly raise the bar when it comes to forward thinking service within the security sector – a highly recommended organisation!

“Great inventor, great director and leader. He believes in his company, in his products and in his employees. Its a pleasure to work for such an up and coming company at the beginning of its very long and successful journey. […] He not only manages the marketing, he also supports in every aspect of the business. He really commits time and energy to ensuring success. […]

“Inspirational leader, exceptional communicator and spokesperson for the business. Proven time and time again that he has a talent for spreading the company message far and wide; it is through his hard work that Sunstone Systems is known from the United Kingdom to Kazakhstan to Saudi Arabia to Algeria.

“From notion to end product, Simon’s vision for addressing the security shortcomings in the remote surveillance market has seen the manufacture of an innovative and quality product that has engaged industry globally and enhanced its security resilience in consequence.”
