The new division will deliver cost effective and bespoke design, installation and maintenance of life safety systems, focussing on compliance and regulatory requirements for both existing and new customers. Solutions will include fire and intruder detection and alarms, emergency lighting, access control, CCTV and sprinklers and will be available as a standalone solution or as part of a broader M&E service. The division will also work closely with the company’s manned guarding business Incentive Lynx and their clientbase.
The fire and security systems staff joined the group along with the company’s acquisition of Weston Electrical Services (WES Group) last year which significantly increased the geographical reach, scale and range of its Incentive Tec business, bringing the total number of multi-skilled mobile engineers the Group now operates to over 140 nationwide, with a further 80 site based technicians. Supporting the relaunch of this business, Incentive Tec will provide training and development opportunities for its existing service teams whilst also looking to strengthen its workforce throughout a number regions of the country.
Jeremy Waud, Chairman at Incentive FM Group, said: ‘’Fire and security technical systems has been a missing link in our service offering and it has been on our shopping list for some time. We were delighted that the Western Electrical acquisition came with a small business under the leadership of Linda Rogers and Richard Parkinson that was already engaged in just this area. This has allowed us to rebrand, invest in and expand the service around the country.”
