A SWINDON security provider has been snapped up by a larger London firm.

Tops Security Solutions in Westmead has joined the Banham Group and can now sell the group’s products and services to homes and businesses in the town.

This is part of Banham’s streak of acquisitions over the last few years which aim to broaden their reach outside of the country’s capital and provide its locks and alarms to customers in eight areas of the UK.

Gary Jones and Simon Rushton started Tops Security in 2008 and worked hard to create good quality designs. Installations and technical support for commercial and domestic clients in Swindon and the surrounding areas.

Simon said: “This is a very proud moment for us and is a true testament to our continued success since we started the company.

"I am delighted that Tops Security have joined the Banham Group, which allows us to elevate our security offering with Banham’s range of iconic, UK manufactured products and leading security services.“

Gary added: “We look forward to the start of this new partnership and the exciting prospects that lie ahead.

“We strongly felt that Banham’s name, reputation, ethos and plans for Tops provided the very best opportunity for everyone involved and gives us a stable, and exciting future for our whole team.”

Founded in 1926, Banham remain the largest provider of home security systems in London and the southeast of England. The British, family-run business – currently on its fourth generation - has seen significant year-on-year growth for almost a century in operation.

Like Tops, Banham is staffed by industry experts with a family ethos who nurture young talent within the industry, and have a shared focus on quality, premium electronic security and technology.

Executive chairman Charles Hallatt said: “Banham are delighted to officially welcome Tops Security to the family. This acquisition marks an exciting time for our growth as we look to expand our business into the west country.

“With us both being family owned and run, there is an undeniable natural synergy between Banham and Tops Security in both our core values and the way in which we operate.

“It is important that we work closely together to continue to work with local communities, develop our people into leading experts and also provide a premium product and service to our customers.

“Tops joining Banham will add to and complement our growth plans for the future.”
