ABOUT ARGUS FIRE AND SECURITY LTD

Argus Fire and Security Ltd

Argus Fire and Security are dedicated to pull out all the stops to supply our customers with effective security solutions to suit their requirements. As Wigan’s largest independent installer of Fire Detection and Security Systems, we have in house expertise to design and install Intruder and Fire Alarms, CCTV, Door Access and Integrated Systems at competitive prices. We are an NSI Gold approved organisation and issue NSI certification on all of our installation work. This ensures that your system is accepted by your insurers and can obtain Police response through our Alarm Receiving Centre if required.

Intruder Alarms were originally our core business, we have been installing good quality reliable systems for over 30 years. All of our Intruder Alarm work was historically carried out to BS 4737:1986.Our current work is carried out to the latest European Standard EN50131 and PD6662:2010. We first achieved accreditation in 1996 and have been designated NACOSS NSI GOLD since 2004. We have had a Certificate of Quality Assurance to BS EN ISO 9002:1994 and NACOSS Quality Schedule SSQS 101 since September 2001.

In January 2015 Argus were awarded NSI Fire Gold Status and BAFE approval for the maintenance of Fire Detection Systems, this was upgraded to cover the design, installation and commissioning of Fire Alarms in September 2015. Argus are now proud to be designated NSI Gold for Intruder Alarms, CCTV, Access Control Systems and Fire Alarms. We believe at Argus as per the trend in the industry, in the future only certified fire alarms will receive automatic brigade response.

Chairman Roger Wood previously helped to build up one of the North West’s most successful intruder alarm companies in the 1970s and 1980s. Oldham Security Services Co Ltd was a family business successful over three decades. Roger’s father Alan Wood had a lifetime of security industry experience and under his leadership employed over 40 people at its peak. In 1984 the American International Corporation Honeywell targeted and eventually purchased the company which had by then its own Alarm Receiving Centre.

Roger tried working in Construction for a few years but was inevitably drawn back to the Security Industry and in 1993, then in 1994 purchased a small but well run company with a reputation for quality. Argus Alarms as it was known then became Argus Security Systems Ltd in 1995.

Argus Fire and Security are based in Wigan near Manchester, in close proximity to the M6, M61, M62, M65 and M58, providing an ideal location to cover the North West of England. From these offices we install and maintain systems from Cumbria to Cheshire and Flintshire to West Yorkshire. However national accounts demand nation wide coverage, and we believe that we are able to provide this in the best way possible. We are a member of a group of similar sized reputable NSI and BAFE approved companies located throughout the UK which we have reciprocal service arrangements with. Our national customers know that all their branches receive the best local service with the personal touch, which only small local companies can provide, yet still have one point of contact.

We have always been careful to get our existing business running smoothly before starting new projects. Intruder Alarms have always formed the core of our business and gradually CCTV, Door Access and Fire Alarms have been added. In 2015 Argus achieved BAFE approval for Fire Detection Systems. This ensures that all our fire alarms will be certified by the NSI in a similar manner to Intruder Alarms, Access Control and CCTV. In January 2016 Argus became a Gent approved company, and our goal for 2017 is to introduce Fire Extinguishers to the service we provide, with accreditation to follow soon after.

Early in 2008 Argus Security Systems as we were then know became accredited to the Contractors Health & Safety Scheme, CHAS. This ensures that we promote the latest safety techniques to give less risk of incidents to our staff, customers and members of the general public. Argus Fire and Security recognise the importance of Health and Safety and are committed to promoting safe working environments. All Argus engineers have completed the CSCS health and safety training test, CSCS (construction skills certification scheme) was set up in the mid-90s with the aim of improving site workers competence to reduce accidents on construction sites and similar work environments.

In previous years Argus have financially helped the Me 2 You Bereavement Charity in 2009, and in 2011, 2012 & 2013 Argus took part in an annual sponsored bike ride, to help raise money for the development of the new Wigan Youth Zone facility. In October 2013 Argus agreed to be an official supporter of the Wigan Youth Zone, and in 2016 Argus agreed to become a supporter of Warrington Youth Club. Our sponsorship for these clubs is via their bronze patronship sponsor programs. Our annual financial contributions assist the running of these facilities in Wigan and Warrington which is something Argus is vey passionate about, as these amazing charity gives thousands of youngsters and teenagers somewhere to go to help develop their skills and relationships.

In relation to our corporate responsibility, in 2016 Argus put staff who drive company vehicles, on a driving awareness course, this course is designed to teach our drivers more fuel efficient techniques to both save the company money on fuel costs and help reduce our carbon foot print. Argus is a company who continually invest to ensure that we have some of the most highly trained and capable staff in the industry.

Argus Alarms was originally set up in Wigan in 1986 and was purchased by Roger Wood in 1994, who built the company with assistance from the other business partners over the next 22 years to the company we are today. In 2003 Mark Pritchard became a business partner and share holder of Argus, and in 2008 Stephen Leigh became a business partner and share holder. Roger, Mark and Stephen have worked very hard to build Argus on the principles of quality, service and re-investment. This has enabled Argus to grow steadily and become a market leader in the security service sector. In 2016 Argus were an NSI as a Gold status company, with BAFE and CHAS accreditation, and approved installers of Paxton, Texecom, and Gent systems. With continued investment we have some of the most highly trained and able staff in the industry.
