London-based security provider, Banham, continue to grow their business by acquiring Swindon-based, Tops Security.
Founded in 1926, Banham remain the largest provider of home security systems in London and the Southeast of England. The British, family-run business, currently in its fourth generation of Banham family, has seen significant year-on-year growth for almost a century in operation.
Banham’s streak of acquisitions has continued since securing Willenhall-based manufacturers, Guardian Locks, in 2021. The Group have been expanding their reach outside of their specialty areas of London and Southeast of England for several years now, providing security to aspirational residential towns in the West Country such as Bristol and Bath, making the acquisition of Tops Security a natural fit.
With Banham now having a local presence in Swindon, this will allow them to further their reach providing homeowners and businesses access to their iconic locks and alarms and bespoke integrated security solutions throughout the West Country.
The companies share several core values, notably both proudly being industry experts with a strong family ethos, having a shared focus on quality, premium electronic security and technology and a commitment to nurture young talent within the industry.
Founded in 2008, Tops Security pride themselves on having created leading design, installation and on-going technical support for commercial and domestic clients within Swindon and the surrounding areas.
Charles Hallatt, Executive Chairman at Banham said:
“Banham are delighted to officially welcome Tops Security to the Banham Group family. This acquisition marks an exciting time for Banham’s growth as we look to expand our business into the West Country. Banham will now have a physical premises in Swindon, bringing our locations to a total of eight across the UK.
With us both being family owned and run, there is an undeniable natural synergy between Banham and Tops Security in both our core values and the way in which we operate. It is important that we work closely together to continue to work with local communities, develop our people into leading experts and also provide a premium product and service to our customers. Tops joining Banham will add to and complement our growth plans for the future.”
