A family run Wirral business is celebrating company growth after an event was held which launched its new administration and operations headquarters in Birkenhead.
Atlas Fire & Security Ltd, one of the largest independent installers of intruder alarm, fire alarms, CCTV and access control systems in Merseyside, welcomed over 40 leading businesses to its 5,000 sq ft Atlas House premises at Kelvin Park.
The purchase of the new HQ provides high quality working environments which are now paying dividends enabling Atlas Fire & Security to develop new markets and grow its customer base, both locally and regionally.
As a close family run business, since 1993 Managing Director, John Piggott, and fellow Directors Frank Piggott and Phil Bullock have been continually building for the next generation; and now with family members, Emma Jones, Adam and Andy Piggott working in the company they bring even greater experience and expertise in areas such as installations, technical and service, and financial systems.
Managing Director, John Piggott, is delighted at the way the company has grown, he said: “Our growth is following a planned business programme we have been delivering since 1993 for both our operations and our customer development. This has now led us to creating the opportunity to purchase and relocate into new premises. We are an ambitious company with aspirations for future growth and our investment demonstrates the direction which we wish the business to follow.”
Atlas Fire & Security employs 20 local staff, including the development of two apprentices who have now been fully trained and seen as very important to the future of the business.
Mr Piggott is certain that the company success has been made through a culture of providing quality work, expertise, and customer care, ”By using industry leading products and a team of experienced technicians it ensures that we provide consistently high quality of installations, maintenance and a 24 hour repair service to our customers.”
Having recently become one of Wirral Business Partnership newest members, its Chief Executive, Paula Basnett, commented on Atlas Fire and Security’s growth and investment, “In uncertain economic times many businesses are reticent to look at expansion opportunities, Atlas Fire & Security has demonstrated that by developing a creative business plan and, with the commitment of both the management and staff, you can achieve growth. They are a very successful forward thinking business.”
