Time for an update
2014 has been a busy and very exciting year for everyone at Amalgamated.
We have experienced significant growth through exercising a number of varying strategies. We have completed a number of successful acquisitions which have seen us both strengthen our position within the fire and security market and also enhanced our existing ability to support our clients on a nationwide basis whilst heavy investment into IT&C has brought our way of working into the 21st Century, as we strive not only to improve efficiency but also to reduce our impact on the environment.
Our company chairman, formerly the Managing Director of Manweb Contracting and President of the ECA, Allan Littler, has also been elected as the European President for AIE – The European Association of Electrical Contractors. A significant achievement which plays a vital role in directing the industry we operate in. As this election suggests, Allan is well respected throughout Europe and he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience not only to Amalgamated but also to the industry.
As we look to the future, 2015 looks to be equally exciting as we celebrate 45 years in the fire and security industry.
We have come a long way since our incorporation as ‘Amalgamated Fire Alarm Company Limited’ on 4th May 1970. As in all industries, the constant need to adapt has had a major influence on our company. We changed our name to ‘Amalgamated Ltd’ in 1993 to reflect our crisper presentation and as a reaction to the ever evolving market which now demands a wider portfolio of disciplines; we’ve achieved a number of accreditations highlighting our constant commitment to quality for our clients, suppliers and staff and also expanded geographically in order to offer our services throughout the UK.
One thing that has never changed – and never will – is our emphasis on customer care. We pride ourselves on protecting life, property and the environment on an interrupted 24:7 basis and continue to enjoy a history and reputation based on integrity and the solid foundation of quality products, installations, service and maintenance.
Make sure you check back regularly to keep up to date with all company and industry news, and feel free to contact us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
