About the Company

Beginning in 1991, our client was formed in Manchester by three BMS leading engineers from Trend Controls contracting team. Thirty years ago, the demand for unique engineering expertise was increasing with the popularity of new generation of BMS. This computer processor technology was identified as a way to keep buildings comfortable and efficient, and was being specified to replace conventional controls systems in the UK. Simon, Dave and Jon, the three owners, who remain within the business to this day, have developed the company and its employees and systems to retain the whole system focus, to ensure quality and reliability for customers new and old. Over the past thirty years, our client has grown organically from a team of five in 1991, to a team of fifty in 2020. The vast majority of current staff are field engineers, located strategically across the UK to serve customers efficiently and economically. Having provided thousands of new installations throughout the company’s history, a major focus in service and maintenance over the past ten years has enabled more and more customers to benefit from our experience. Our client believes passionately in the engineers of the future, and have given opportunities to many young local people, some of whom are still with the company almost twenty years later. Each year our client endeavours to take at least one engineer into the company to ensure the ethos of quality and reliability is passed on. With the rapid development of IoT products and solutions, the mix of experience and innovation is the perfect balance to keep our client as the preferred choice of building controls specialist for so many organisations, not only today but for years to come.
