Incentive FM Group has launched a specialist company to operate as a subsidiary of Incentive Tec, its building services business.


Incentive Tec – Fire & Security Systems Ltd will deliver cost-effective and bespoke design, installation and maintenance of life safety systems, focusing on compliance and regulatory requirements for both existing and new customers.


This will include fire and intruder detection and alarms, emergency lighting, access control, CCTV and sprinklers, available either as standalone solutions or as part of a broader mechanical and electrical service. The division will also work closely with the company’s manned guarding business Incentive Lynx and its client base.


The fire and security systems staff joined the group along with the company’s acquisition of Weston Electrical Services (WES Group) last year, which significantly increased the geographical reach, scale and range of its Incentive Tec business, bringing the group’s total number of multi-skilled mobile engineers to more than 140 nationwide, plus another 80 site-based technicians. Supporting the relaunch of this business, Incentive Tec will provide training and development opportunities for its existing service teams while also looking to strengthen its workforce across several regions of the country.


Jeremy Waud, chairman at Incentive FM Group, said: “Fire and security technical systems has been a missing link in our service offering and it has been on our shopping list for some time. We were delighted that the Western Electrical acquisition came with a small business under the leadership of Linda Rogers and Richard Parkinson that was already engaged in just this area. This has allowed us to rebrand, invest in and expand the service around the country.”


Chris Windass, managing director at Incentive Tec, said: “We pride ourselves on our ability to engage with clients, understanding their needs and providing a bespoke solution. As a result, we are continually looking to expand the scope of our directly delivered services and are committed to helping our customers keep their people, buildings and assets safe, secure and efficient.”
