ATEC is a specialist fire and security systems integrator.

The company was founded in 1985 as a family business by Simon, Carole and John Adcock.  All three are still very much involved and Simon is a hands-on CEO.

Over the years ATEC has grown to be recognised as a leader in the field of fire and security systems integration, with an impressive array of high profile clients and offices in the Midlands and London. At our heart though, we remain a family business which means we keep our promises, meet our commitments and maintain long-term trusted relationships with our clients.

We invest heavily in the training and development of our staff providing our clients with unrivalled expertise.  Our in-house IT specialists have created patented software which offers our clients a level of flexibility in their solution that no competitor can match.

Describing the company he has built over the past three decades Simon Adcock said:

“We are not a ‘no- frills short-haul’ security company.  With these type of security companies the planning is user led, the journey is unpleasant with someone trying to sell you things you don’t need and you end up miles from your intended destination.  You vow never to use them again.  For our clients ATEC manages all the planning, the journey is pleasant and our clients get exactly what they wanted and needed.  They return again and again.”

This approach is reflected in our Vision and values statement.
