During the pandemic Champion Security Installations reached our 10th Birthday.
Due to the unprecedented circumstances and uncertainty at the time we didn’t shout about this, it passed by quietly, it didn’t feel appropriate to celebrate. The plans we had made to celebrate with our team were cancelled. Friday night we celebrated, 18 months after the original milestone! We feel happy to be able to shout about our success and achievements as a business because we are proud of how far we have come.
1st July 2011, Champion started trading. Dorian’s Grandfather Harold passed away in September 2010. Harold was a Lancashire lad, the later stages of his life when in a home, Dorian would ask if Grandfather how he was, “I'm Champion”, would be his reply. Champion Security Installations was born. Dorian started Champion on his own, after 12 months he soon realised he needed other people to help with his plans to grow the business. A year later Dorian persuaded me, his wife to join him. Then we were a team of 2 with a small team of trusted contractors. The business has grown organically by recommendations and repeat business and 11 years later, an amazing roller roaster of highs and lows and we’re a team of 14, with a bigger team of trusted contractors. We have developed a specialism installing security in high end residential properties in the UK and customers’ properties abroad.
Dorian says “Champion is a legacy to someone of great influence in my life, without him I wouldn't be the person I am now. The team make my job much easier; they are all a privilege to work with and their loyalty is priceless. Thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey so far.”
