Among recent contract wins worth £100,000, Keybury Fire & Security has completed new installations on behalf of two local manufacturers.

The company has upgraded the CCTV system at Kadel Engineering in Keighley and installed new CCTV, intruder and fire alarm and access control systems at Skipton-based Northern Paper Board.

 From its 16,000sq ft facility in Ingrow Bridge Business Park, Kadel Engineering, a family-run company established in 1974, manufactures hi-tech precision machined parts for the defence, rail, aerospace, satellite, medical and optics industries across the UK, Europe, USA and Japan.

The upgrade to the firm’s existing CCTV system allows managing director Paul Rollins to remotely access and operate cameras while off site via his laptop or Smartphone.

He said: “Whenever I am away, it means I can keep a close eye on the building and machines externally and internally at any time of day or night. It is proving a very powerful tool, both in terms of improved security provision and the fact that I can keep tabs on unmanned machines we operate.”

The Northern Paper Board security package was key to a major expansion, development and investment programme at the firm’s headquarters in Engine Shed Lane, Skipton. The independent family company remains one of the largest stockists and manufacturers of solid board boxes for the food processing industry across the UK and Ireland.

Managing director John Curran said: “The new access control system enables us to restrict access to authorised personnel only, while CCTV allows us to monitor production and despatch, also ensuring that our hygiene and quality policies are adhered to. It’s all about making sure that we meet the standards both our customers and our staff have come to expect.”

Patrick Beebe, operations director of Keighley-based Keybury Fire & Security, said: ”Our CCTV business is currently running at an all-time high, with sales up 35%, driven both by strong demand and a growing awareness of bolt-on security benefits provided by modern-day technology.

“Companies and organisations need to be aware that CCTV installations should meet the latest British standards and stringent criteria required by the industry governing body, the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), through its ‘Gold Installer’ scheme.

“There are lots of security companies who fall short in both respects, so we strongly advise potential business and private users to thoroughly check their credentials before committing to CCTV and other security systems.”

Keybury Fire & Security, which also has regional offices in Skipton, Ilkley, Harrogate and York, is this year celebrating its landmark 30th year in business, making it one of the region’s longest established independent family-run security companies.
