With external influences in the UK’s economic and political environment causing some nervousness and after a cautious trading period at the start to the year, Choice saw much-improved results in new orders and revenues to finish 2018 strongly.
Choice has boosted its credentials as a preferred supplier to the financial sector by gaining registered status within the Financial Services Qualification System (FSQS) Stage 2 as part of its compliance requirement for customer Santander. FSQS is designed to standardise and manage requests for compliance and assurance data in a one-for-all submission process which serves the major financial services organisations that have adopted the system.
Surpassing last year’s strong performance
Results for our last financial year have surpassed the strong performance delivered in the previous year, with all key indicators demonstrating a continuing, dynamic upward trend.
12-year business-building contribution
Choice co-founding director Trevor Arnott takes up official retirement at the end of March 2017, after 12 years contributing to the foundation and growth of the business. From 2005, having previously been Regional Operations Director for Bell Security Ltd, Trevor has worked across company operations and specifically to establish a west-of-England presence for Choice. This led to the opening of our office base in Bristol in 2010.
Contract covers bank’s UK branch network and other corporate premises
A major high street bank has awarded Choice Fire & Security Solutions Ltd the contract for provision of security systems and maintenance services across its extensive UK branch network and other corporate premises. This follows from a competitive tendering process in late 2015. The scope of activity spans intruder alarms with integrated access control and CCTV. Choice is providing system installations and refurbishments along with scheduled maintenance programme activities, a Technical Help-desk service and emergency call-out response.
