Family Business Established in 1981
In 1981 although domestic burglaries are not so widespread as they are today, sadly the days of going out leaving your doors unlocked were a distant memory. The current family owners established a local business to help improve the security of homes and businesses in and around the Ipswich area.
Security systems at the time relied on basic technology and demand for such systems was low. Within a few years however more and more Suffolk based home owners and businesses were turning to what was then Anglian Burglar Alarms for their security needs.
We rapidly became an approved company which allowed us to install security systems that were connected directly to the Police and as such gained recognition from the insurance industry. We are extremely proud that we have held NACOSS Gold accreditation longer than any other Suffolk based company and more than most in Norfolk, Essex, and Cambridgeshire. As a NACOSS Gold company our security systems meet all the relvant British Standards.
Things have moved on and whilst burglar alarms remain at the core of what we do, we now design, install and maintain fire alarms as a BAFE approved company. We install CCTV and Access Control Systems to the same high standards.
As a complete security systems provider we changed our name in 2012 to reflect more comprehensively what we do at the same time continuing to maintain several thousand security systems across East Anglia.
From a home based husband and wife business in 1981 we now employ over twenty people running eleven vans from a large industrial unit just off the A14 providing great access to Ipswich, Colchester, Bury Cambridge and surrounding areas.
Anglian Security & Fire consider staff retention to provide a good indication as to how well an organisation operates and our team of engineers have been with us for a number of years. Our trainee engineers are subject to a rigorous training program and are fully supervised on site for a minimum of two years before finally working on their own
Our focus has always been on customer service and in an industry that is saturated with one man bands, and dominated by multinational companies it should be refreshing to know there is a family run business at the forefront of security services available to you, your family, and your business.
