Centurion Fire & Security Ltd, a commercial security and fire system provider, has been selected as one of the first companies to test and roll-out the world’s most advanced fire system technology. The major deal is announced as the firm approaches a milestone year, in which revenues are expected to grow by 25%.

Just six UK organisations have been hand-picked to help bring the C-Tec CAST fire system to market. Designed to pre-empt changes in industry-standards, the addressable 'distributed intelligence' alarm system has been developed as part of a multimillion-pound investment by Lancashire-based C-Tec.

Centurion will begin to roll-out the technology across its UK-wide fire projects, providing valuable user feedback to the manufacturer. The company has also signed a deal with another Lancashire-based manufacturer; Texecom alarm systems.

Speaking of the partnerships, David Armstrong, founder of Centurion, said: “We have worked with C-Tec for many years, and their technology is second-to-none. So, we are delighted to have been chosen as a partner for the world-leading CAST technology, which we feel will revolutionise the way that our fire services can respond to incidents.

“The fact that C-Tec and Texecom are both British manufacturers is also a major factor for us. We are partnering with companies which support the British economy and jobs, alongside positioning the UK as a leader within the global security market.”

Centurion has recently secured a number of major contracts, which will contribute to 2020 being the most profitable 12-month period in its 45-year history.

Newly-completed projects include a £1.5million CCTV contract for a hazardous environment within the nuclear industry, as well as a £90,000 fire alarm system for Jaguar Land Rover in Huddersfield and a £120,000 fire alarm project for the Morrisons refrigeration centre in Wakefield.

The 50-strong team is currently undertaking a number of UK-wide schemes, including a £80,000 fire alarm project for Reading FC training ground. It is also installing a £50,000 fire detection and aspiration system for a brand-new Maserati showroom in Solihull, West Midlands.
