Wessex Fire & Security
Wessex Fire & Security have been providing private residential and commercial businesses with world-class solutions for protection against fire, theft and damage for over 35 years. With over 15,000 installations across the UK to our name, we have a local and national reputation for excellence in everything we do.
As the South West’s number one independent provider of fire and security services, Wessex frequently make the news.
With Wessex often carrying out groundbreaking, challenging or exciting projects, our work is frequently featured in local, national and trade press. From completing newsworthy projects with large clients such as Marks and Spencer or the National Trust, to carrying out complex integrated system planning and testing for large schools, universities and hospitals, we have done it all.
We also enjoy celebrating the success and endeavours of our staff and partners, their charitable work and personal achievements, and are proud to sponsor local Street football team Wessex Knights.
With hundreds of completed projects across the region, we like to let our work speak for itself.
We are the service provider of choice to some of the region’s leading businesses, sites and attractions and also pride ourselves on our substantial private residential portfolio, looking after the homes of customers across six counties.
We have a huge breadth of services and products that span the supply, installation and maintenance of fire alarms, extinguishers and suppression systems, CCTV, intruder alarms and public address alarms. We also provide security cameras, fire marshal training and much, much more, and deliver maintenance and monitoring packages across all of our services. Our case studies represent a snapshot of the work that we can, and have, delivered for thousands of loyal and happy customers.
Working at Wessex is like being part of a family of experts, all striving to deliver excellence for a diverse and challenging customer base.
We have a team of almost 90 staff and engineers and are dedicated to the continued development and support of our experts, both in the field and at head office. We are also passionate about growing our own talent and currently have four apprentice engineers learning and working on real projects, expanding their skill sets and building invaluable experience.
