midland fire celebrates 20 years of trading

Over the past 20 years Midland Fire Security Services Ltd (Midland Fire) has become one of the most successful fire alarm and life safety system providers in the local area. With a team of 20 engineers the company has come a long way from its inception at the start of the century.

Midland Fire’s focus on commercial fire safety systems have seen them work on several complex projects over the years. Previous projects include fire alarm systems at Terminal 5, Heathrow Airport, Xscape Shopping Centre, Milton Keynes and Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK near Derby.

The company’s engineers are local to the Burton On Trent area, it also employs 5 apprentices to support the future growth of the business.

Humble beginnings

To this day Midland Fire remains a family run life safety company. The company was founded by Gary Sillito in September 1999. Gary worked as a specialist subcontractor to Gent / Honeywell Building Solutions, catering for their more complex commissioning and programming needs. He earned a reputation for quality workmanship and excellent customer service helping the company win projects of their own throughout the East and West Midlands.

Over the last decade the business has continued to grow with the help of Gary’s three sons, Daniel, Luke and Jack who started out their careers as electricians at WT Parker Ltd. Their input and varied experience enabled Midland Fire to be able to carry out more installations throughout the UK and offer more services including electrical services, emergency lighting, door access, gas suppression and fire extinguisher services.  The company has also gained several accreditations to meet suppliers’ requirements and maintain the highest standards of workmanship.

Recent successes

Throughout the busy summer period, Midland Fire have successfully completed a range of complex projects, including the full rewire of fire alarms at Fairfax Multi Academy Trust, several school fire alarm rewires for local electrical contractors, the electrical Infrastructure for the new medical school at Aston University and the upgrade of sub-station fire alarms system at Toyota Manufacturing. Along with this they have secured a 3-year electrical framework contract at Aston University, and multiple contracts with the NHS within the West Midlands, along with various upgrade works to fire alarm systems for local contractors.
