About Us

Established in 1968, we began life as an alarm systems manufacturer for the fire, security and nurse call sectors.

Since 1990 however we have specialised solely in wireless nurse call technology and have grown to establish ourselves as the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer in the sector.

We remain a family owned company and now count NHS Trusts and private hospitals amongst our customers, along with local authority and privately owned care homes, ranging from small independents to multi-national care home groups.

Our mission is “to design, develop and deliver technology that protects and improves the lives of people who require care.”

Courtney Thorne’s salesman is always on hand if I need him and our homes are all very complimentary about the customer service team. Put simply, it’s a very good system with very good service!
