1987: Tod Security and Fire was formed by Samantha and David Tod.
At that time dedicated training for security and fire engineers wasn't available , so most companies relied on self taught engineers which seldom had the depth of technical or practical skills required to carryout the installation of a reliable, well installed system.
Our prime objective was to provide a more professional service, with well designed and installed, cost-effective solutions using our own specially trained engineers, to gain a reputation for reliability and excellent customer service.
1997: Tod Security attained NSI Gold Accreditation and Ukas 9001 quality assurance, which helped to consolidate the company within the commercial and public sector markets.
2013: In February this year, the NSI began their BAFE SP203 fire accreditation scheme. Soon after the schemes release, we were among the first companies in Wales to attain Gold Fire Accreditation.
2015: Danny Tod became Head of Sales and created a rapid growth program.
2018: Danny was promoted to General Manager, responsible for running the companies day-to-day operations.
2019: Tod Security moved into our new purpose-built 1000² meter premises.
Although having expanded well beyond a small family business, we have tried to ensure our original objectives and core values are still attained. These include providing reliable, cost-effective solutions that are fit for purpose, with investment in staff training and development, ensuring an excellent reputation for customer service.
