MES Sys­tems Ltd still build­ing for fu­ture

Warwickshire Telegraph - - BUSINESS DAILY -

IT started as an elec­tri­cal con­trac­tor al­most three decades ago.

But MES Sys­tems Lim­ited de­cided to leave that mar­ket and moved into the se­cu­rity in­dus­try by in­stalling and main­taing in­truder alarms.

Now, thanks to a suc­cess­ful 2015, the Nuneaton firm has been nom­i­nated for the Small Busi­ness of the Year cat­e­gory of this year’s Coven­try Tele­graph Busi­ness Awards (CTBA2016).

Andy Mor­gan es­tab­lished the com­pany in 1988 with his then ap­pren­tice Ian Kemp.

It went from strength to strength in the 1990s, build­ing a loyal cus­tomer base and build­ing up part­ner­ships with other elec­tri­cal con­trac­tors, which in­cluded swap­ping elec­tri­cal jobs for fire and se­cu­rity work.

In 2004 the busi­ness made the strate­gic de­ci­sion to drop most of its elec­tri­cal work to con­cen­trate on fire and se­cu­rity.

It con­tin­ues to part­ner with elec­tri­cal con­trac­tors to seek op­por­tu­ni­ties in this field.

MES Sys­tems now em­ploys ten peo­ple to sup­ply, main­tain and in­stall fire and se­cu­rity prod­ucts, such as in­truder alarms, CCTV, fire alarms and ac­cess con­trol sys­tems.

The com­pany plans to take on two fur­ther members of staff this year and is plan­ning to in­crese its cus­tomers base by over 50 per cent over the next three years.”

Of­fice Man­ager Richard Mor­gan said: “We have built up a large cus­tomer base over 25 years, rang­ing from the likes of Mr and Mrs Smith to McDon­alds, who have cho­sen to work with us thanks to rec­om­men­da­tions.

“We un­der­stand that if we come rec­om­mended then it is likely that the cus­tomer has high ex­pec­ta­tions which we strive to meet. Over 96 per cent of our work is ei­ther re­peat busi­ness or re­fer­ral based which shows our pas­sion and com­mit­ment for cus­tomer ser­vice.

“We al­ways act quickly to roll out the lat­est in­no­va­tions to our new and ex­ist­ing cus­tomers and re­cently we have been de­vel­op­ing sys­tems to work with smart phone apps. We are also in the process of fi­nal­is­ing our new trade showroom.

“We are plan­ning to in­crease our cus­tomer base by 50 per cent over the next three years and look­ing to grow our turnover by 20 per cent each year from now un­til 2018.”

En­tries for CTBA2016 will re­main open un­til Fri­day, July 15. To en­ter your firm visit our ded­i­cated web­site at www. ct­busi­nes­
