Fire and security installation and maintenance company Tecserv UK says it is optimistic of achieving its year-end targets having secured a forward order book of over £1m heading into 2021 as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The new projects that company has won include Akeley Wood School in Buckinghamshire and several London based hotel and restaurants fire alarm system upgrades. The company has also been appointed to install fire and security systems into temporary buildings that have been erected in order to expand capacity at schools and health centres in order to ensure the requirement for social distancing measures can be accommodated.

The £1m pipeline of new projects includes system installation and maintenance contracts for several retail outlets, more schools and a number of new build installations comprising fire, security, CCTV and access control systems.

Grahame Tilley, chief operating officer, one of the founding directors, said: “As soon as Government announcements were made in March 2020 we got on the front foot and started to advise our customers on how to maintain their fire and security systems, particularly in buildings that might not be occupied for some time. As a result of these discussions, many customers decided to use the building closure as the ideal opportunity to carry out upgrades to existing systems. This was a reaction we did not anticipate, but we are extremely grateful for this additional work as it is one of the reasons we were able to keep our team of service engineers operating at full strength.”

Sales and marketing director Colin Milligan added: “Our company is built on care, dedication and a passion for delivering honest advice, great results and excellent customer service. The entire team has pulled together to help to ensure we reached this important milestone anniversary and can be optimistic about our future.”

Tecserv UK is based in Underwood, Nottinghamshire and employs 50 people.
