About

FOUNDED IN 1974 CENTURION HAS GROWN TO BECOME ONE OF THE UK'S MOST WELL-RESPECTED FIRE AND SECURITY SPECIALISTS, HAVING WORKED ON THOUSANDS OF COMMERCIAL PROJECTS OF ALL SIZES AND SCOPE.

45 years ago, we started life as a modest organisation, working on domestic and small commercial projects. From these humble beginnings in our founder’s garage, we have developed into a multi-disciplined commercially focused business, designing, installing and commissioning fire alarm and CCTV systems. We have esteemed and diverse organisations among our list of clients, including West Yorkshire Police, H.M. Prisons, The Nuclear Industry, Sellafield Ltd, Jaguar Land Rover, Morrisons Supermarkets, Expect Distribution and many local councils such as Barnsley MBC and Kirklees MBC.

In 2016 – 42 years after inception – we secured our most prestigious contract to date; a high-profile Nuclear Industry project, in which we designed and supplied a £1.5m CCTV system for use in hazardous environments.

Our strong base of clients has grown entirely from recommendations and our long-lasting reputation as industry leaders in new technology – something which we are incredibly proud of.

In our time, we have pioneered industry best-practice, including remote resetting and remote diagnosis, and continue to invest in the best technology the 21st century has to offer, recently using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our CCTV systems to identify intruders and reduce false alarms.

Because we work closely with manufacturers, we are able to share the latest information on technology, techniques, systems and processes with our Consultant Partners via regular CPD approved seminars.

Our Showroom

Fire and Security systems operate in the background of an organisation. Often, it is only when you come face-to-face with a system’s interface that you can understand the impact it has on a busines’s day to day functions – and the opportunities for it to deliver bottom-line benefits.

Based at our Huddersfield head office, our impressive showroom and CCTV suite showcase the power of such technology. With demonstrations available, we invite our customers, old and new, to visit our facility and see, first-hand, the way in which technology can protect assets and reduce costs.

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

We are a manufacturer of Specialist Glass products who operate a night shift production factory. We first approached Centurion after an incident occurred during a night shift which gave us cause for concern. Whilst more expensive than a conventional analogue CCTV system the HD IP CCTV Centurion installed has far superior quality images and ease of use when playing back or reviewing recorded footage. We wholly recommend the service Centurion has provided us with and would not hesitate to use their services again.

Director, Specialist Glass Products

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

Bradford Royal Infirmary and St Luke’s Hospital employ over 4.5 thousand staff on two sites covering 59 acres. We have employed the services of Centurion Security Systems Ltd for both Bradford Royal Infirmary and St Luke’s Hospital since 1999 for our Staff Protection and Access Control systems of over 440 doors. Centurion competitively tender for this work on a 3 year contract and the fact that we have retained their services since 1999 speaks for itself. I have no hesitation in recommending their services for undertaking any complex Security projects such as our own.

Paul Noble

Estates Manager, Bradford Teaching Hospitals

DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

After a recent burglary through a Fire Exit door, we contacted Centurion Security Systems and another CCTV provider for quotations. The 4k HD IP CCTV system solution Centurion offered was more expensive, but after viewing the system in their Showroom and comparing the image quality and ease of use of Milestone we decided that it was an investment in security we were not willing to compromise on. We were very pleased with the installation and we are pleased to be able to recommend Centurion with confidence.
