After 2 years and 16 acquisitions since they began their journey into the Compliance and Critical Services Sector, Marlowe plc announce the launch of their 1st fully integrated, operating company to carry their name; Marlowe Fire & Security.
Marlowe Fire & Security brings together the capabilities and resources of two of Marlowe plc’s earliest acquisitions; the Salford based Swift Fire & Security and Bodmin based Hentland Fire & Security.
The integration of the 2 national fire life safety and security providers has been undertaken gradually and sensitively over the past two years to recognise the needs of their Customers, Supply Chain Partners and Team Members.
Now, with all internal business and operational processes aligned, Marlowe plc is ready to introduce Marlowe Fire & Security to the marketplace.
Alex Dacre, CEO of Marlowe plc explains: “Since our initial acquisition of Swift Fire & Security in April 2016, it has been our ambition to grow a leading UK based fire and security business that can rival the international brands in the market. With the launch of Marlowe Fire & Security we are making excellent progress towards realising this ambition.”
Backed by Marlowe plc, Marlowe Fire & Security is now the UK’s fastest growing and most dynamic total fire and security solution provider. Offering an unrivalled range of products and services, national engineering infrastructure and a national customer base that touches every industry from retail to transport, hospitality and leisure to utilities.
Rob Flinn, formerly Managing Director at ASSA ABLOY, Ingersoll Rand and Promanex, was appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer of Marlowe plc’s Fire & Security Division in August 2017 and has since spearheaded the complete integration of Swift Fire & Security and Hentland Fire & Security.
Rob Flinn summarises: “From experience I understand that key to successful integration is ensuring we communicate comprehensively both internally and externally and all stakeholders are supported in understanding the benefits of bringing two unique entities together. Both Swift Fire & Security and Hentland Fire & Security have, for many years, maintained strong identities in the markets they serve and have independently built loyal and impressive customer relationships with some of the largest blue chip companies operating today. By rebranding we recognise our past success and build upon it; offering our customers an enhanced experience that can only be achieved through integration.”
