Keybury Peter Atkinson 25 yearInstallations engineer Peter Atkinson has clocked up a 25-year career milestone at Keighley-based Keybury Fire & Security.

Peter, of Riddlesden, has made a major contribution to the company – both before and after its establishment in 1982 by managing director Frank Gee.

Frank explained: I first met Peter when I was learning the ropes of the security industry with a national firm. He actually trained me and after founding Keybury almost 30 years ago Peter was the first person I employed.

All our new trainees are placed with Peter for the first 12 months, such is his knowledge of installing alarms, coupled with his standards of best practice. He trains each engineer into the ‘Keybury’ way of doing things.

Peter continues to be an integral member of the team and has played a keynote role both in developing the skills of our employees and enabling Keybury to become one of the longest established independent security companies in the UK.
