About BAC Fire & Security Ltd.
BAC Fire & Security Ltd was started as a provider of Domestic Intruder alarms and originally traded under the name of Bristol Alarm Company. Rapid expansion in the late 1990’s along with increased Customer demand created the need to expand the range of services offered. It was at this point that the Company changed name and rebranded as BAC Fire and Security Ltd, the multi-disciplined company that you know today. Within 6 years of rebranding the company had tripled the size of their engineer teams in order to service the ever-increasing number of commercial contracts.
Due to high standards and consistent performance, BAC gained a deserved reputation for quality and reliability. The hard work paid dividends and the company started to secure sizeable contracts with Social Housing providers. BAC’s reputation and success with these clients then paved the way to yet more business within the housing sector.
As the UK Fire regulations have become more stringent over the years, these clients have come to BAC for expert advice in respect of compliance as well as contracting the company to manage and maintain their sites Fire Alarm systems. BAC then went on to gain BAFE accreditation and retrain our Engineers in all aspects of BS5839 shifting the balance of BAC’s primary discipline to Fire systems.
