We’re excited to announce further accelerated growth in our fire and security division, with the acquisition of two more specialist businesses. Firewatch South West Limited and ITS Fire & Security Limited are the latest additions to bolster our national capabilities in the areas of commercial facilities that matter most to our customers.

Both companies, based in Devon and Surrey respectively, provide a full breadth of key products and services from the design, installation and maintenance of fire alarm systems, fire doors, signage and extinguishers through to fire risk assessments and training. ITS will also boost our security credentials with services covering intruder alarms, CCTV and access controls.

Fire is a rapidly growing addition to the JLA family of critical asset supply and service propositions which also include commercial laundry, catering and heating. The company is a trusted partner to 25,000+ customers across a diverse range of sectors including healthcare, care homes, schools, hotels and social housing.

“Alongside our other acquired fire businesses,  these two key industry players, Firewatch South West and ITS, will expand our capabilities and national coverage significantly with the addition of 50 engineers, many of whom are cross-skilled.   As the newest critical asset division in JLA we are proud to see the growth we have achieved in fire and security in just two years, and we are excited about the huge opportunities going forward with our national coverage.”

Rob Harris, Managing Director of Fire at JLA ​

“JLA was the perfect fit for ITS. Becoming part of a growing national group will enable us to strengthen and expand our offerings to our clients and means we can provide a truly exceptional service across the country.  We are all looking forward to the exciting road ahead.”

Tim Dyer, Director at ITS Group
