FSB Wales Blog - Business of the Month - Jackson Fire & Security Solutions

Jackson Fire and Security, a company specialising in providing fire and security solutions, was started by Steve Jackson in his garage in the early nineties. Steve had always pictured going into business himself, and used his sales background in order to start the business.

25 years later, Jackson Fire and Security Solutions is a significant employer, is based in Mold, and currently hires 40 staff, with big expansion plans for the near future.

From their North Wales base, Jackson Fire and Security offer a range of services to local customers, as well as those further afield in areas such as Yorkshire, the Midlands, Teesside and Cambrideshire.They now do as much business in North West England as they do in Wales, which demonstrates just how impressive their service is.

Steve Jackson, Managing Director of the company, believes that their success lies in being big enough to deliver on their customers’ expectations, whilst retaining the small business mentality of developing long-term relationships, and putting a human face to the company name.

As a company that provides fire extinguishers, fire alarm systems along with security measures such as CCTV and access control, they have seen technology move on at a huge pace over the last two decades, and have maintained their position as an industry leader in this field.

In the coming months and years, Jackson Fire and Security have begun a process of franchising the business in order to continue to instil local values and high service standards in a quickly growing company. Jackson Fire and Security also has a long-term commitment to working with the local community and giving something back by sponsoring local events and raising money for a local hospice.

The business is also seeking to provide innovative solutions for its clients. Anyone who lived in university halls will likely attest to how regularly fire alarms are set off. Jackson worked to ensure that all new fire alarm equipment installed at a local North West university offers a no false alarm guarantee, which has made a huge difference to students, campus staff and the local fire and rescue teams who have noticed a dramatic drop in the number of call outs to student halls.

Jackson Fire and Security really is an example of how a small business can grow in order to become a major regional employer and, as they grow, can carry with them the values that set apart a local, community minded business.
