TEC Fire & Security was first established in 2011 by Simon Philp, after many years of frustration helping to build other people’s businesses and feeling totally deflated and unfulfilled. Les Millard joined the business in 2015 after experiencing the same frustrations over many years himself. We combined forces and used our industry experience to work towards our vision of being the best fire and security provider in the area for educational and commercial clients.
Although we have always had a vision of where we wanted the business to go our experience was only in the technical side of things, we soon realised we would have to change our approach in order to not deviate from the main business goals. We concluded from this a change was required to enable a different outcome that could help drive the business forward.
We decided to seek external advice from other business owners, and educated ourselves with business, and personal development books. This combined with the help of business mentors enabled us to put together our business growth plan, which aligns with our vision of where we would like the company to be in future and the action steps required to achieve it.
We have since invested into the fire side of the business and we are very fortunate to have had Richard Mitchell join Tec in 2018 who is developing this side of the business with us.
The company’s client focus is on providing a great customer experience and aims to keep providing the services that keeps its clients safe, secure and compliant.
For the Tec management and staff it’s all about building and investing in a team of likeminded people with the varying skill sets to grow the business inline with our company culture, which will encourage individual personal development, responsibility and accountability.
