About Aegis Integrated Security
Our company name comes from the Greek – “under the Aegis of” meaning under the protection of. Aegis was also the shield of Zeus, making the name synonymous with the highest level of security.
Established in 1981 by its current Managing Director Alan Hicks, Aegis Integrated Security originally provided the installation and maintenance of alarm systems, but since then has grown to offer a range of security services. Despite our growth in expertise, Aegis remains independent with the same strong, family ethos which has been at the heart of our business for over 30 years.
Any company is only as good as its worst member of staff; it is therefore no surprise that we have taken many years to obtain, train and mould our employees into working with us rather than for us, with the common goal of meeting and hopefully surpassing our customers’ expectations. An impressive 60% of new enquiries come from recommendations, which we believe is a testament to the quality of our customer service.
The Local Security Expert
From our premises in Dedham, which is ideally located on the Essex Suffolk borders just off the A12, we can serve customers from across the Colchester and Ipswich areas. In fact, we not only serve Colchester and Ipswich, but cover roughly a 60 mile radius from our offices which includes the Witham, Braintree and Chelmsford areas in Essex and the Felixstowe, Diss, Stowmarket and Needham Market areas in Suffolk.
During over 30 years of service, we have developed strong relationships with many local police forces and major insurance companies. We have been members of the NSCIA, NACOSS, and are now fully-accredited members of the SSAIB, a UKAS-certified company. These accreditations mean that our clients can feel confident that they are working with a company whose work meets all industry and EU standards.
Inspectorates and standards are no use unless they are backed up by true commitment to deliver the promise of a first class installation using the highest quality equipment. Although we may not be the cheapest, we are proud to say that installations fitted over 20 years ago are still functioning and over 80% of our client base still remain with our firm for regular maintenance.
