Mike Says:

“We are operating in an era where small and medium-sized businesses find it an increasing burden to comply with legislation across a broad range of business areas.  Because of this we make it as simple as possible for you to meet the requirements of the fire safety order to keep your staff, customers and assets safe.”


David Gell

Dave leads on the arm of our business that installs fire alarms and provides electrical installations, maintenance and testing.  Dave welcomes exploratory discussions with companies that are aware of their need to upgrade but are unsure about what and how technology can help advance their business. This ranges from electrical installations that can have a significant positive impact on utility costs to complying with requirements for electrical testing.

Dave Says:

“Most people are aware of the obvious reasons for fire and burglar alarms such as maximising protection and minimising loss. However state of the art systems can offer many other benefits.  For instance, monitoring CCTV off site is a game-changer for many of our clients so get in touch to find out more.”

Michelle has worked in family businesses for most of her life and is proud that our company is independent and family-run.

Michelle says:
