A SECURITY installer has won a contract to supply a North-East business park.

AEL Systems Ltd, based in Darlington, will install security equipment in the town’s Lingfield Point business park.

The security system will see the installation of new CCTV equipment, as well as the use of an automatic number plate recognition system.

The new CCTV will make use of high definition cameras along with software that makes the system faster, more agile and easier to use.

Established in 2003, AEL has designed, installed and maintain fire and security systems for establishments including Middlesbrough’s Cleveland Centre, Darlington College and the Cornmill Shopping Centre.

Lee Willis, managing director of AEL, said: “As one of the premier security systems firms in the North East it’s good to work with companies who understand the real benefits of this state-of-the-art technology and who are prepared to invest in it.”

Lingfield Point is the home of 60 firms including the Student Loans Company and AMEC Foster Wheeler, and has around 3,000 people working at the 90 acre site.

Eddie Humphries, estate manager of Lingfield Point, said: “As this investment shows, we are continually investing in improving our security systems and ways of monitoring on site activities, meaning customers are able to put it to the back of their minds and go about their daily business.”

“Our unique concierge team ensures a safe and welcoming environment for our customers and we provide a service that is second to none and we want to keep it that way” he added.
