The Devonshire, Grassington

Keighley-based Keybury Fire and Security continues to fortify its trading partnership with the town’s Timothy Taylor’s Brewery following the installation of a new CCTV system at its latest outlet, The Devonshire in Grassington.

Keybury put in external and internal cameras at The Devonshire, purchased by Taylor’s last year and run in partnership with Pickles Pubs, also based locally in Cross Hills. They have jointly funded a major refurbishment project at the well-known Yorkshire Dales inn and hotel.

Neil Pickles, managing director of Pickles Pubs, established in 2006 and now with an eight-strong portfolio of pubs across the Aire and Wharfe valleys, said effective security was a key consideration across all its outlets and the new CCTV system at The Devonshire, the first hotel in the group, was already proving its worth in helping to facilitate a safe and secure environment for customers, guests and staff.

“CCTV is a powerful tool and we are also using the system for performance management and improving customer service,” added Mr Pickles.

Keybury has been Timothy Taylor’s preferred partner on security provision for more than 20 years. Another recent contract undertaken on behalf of the award-winning brewer was an upgraded intruder alarm system at the Royal Oak, Damside.

All three companies share one thing in common – a desire to use local suppliers wherever possible, without compromising on quality, so helping to bolster the regional economy.

CCTV is a currently a major growth area for Keybury and in the first two months of this year alone the company, based on Worth Enterprise Park, carried out over 20 installations for both commercial and domestic customers. All systems now utilise the latest high definition cameras and internet protocol technology.

Keybury Fire and Security’s technical director Patrick Beebe said: “HD CCTV systems have now become standard in our industry sector. They give much higher quality images and are proving far more cost-effective than the old analogue systems.

“We continue to offer a simple upgrade path which allows us to install the latest HD cameras on conventional CCTV wiring.”
