Security company celebrates 20 years

Farnworth based Key Control Services, who provide 24/7 and out-of-hours peace of mind for its customers, celebrated its 20th anniversary last week. The business was launched by former Police Sergeant, Phil Thompson, in 1998 after retiring from GMP. 

Phil, who hails originally from Birmingham, and his staff, celebrated with customers, networking colleagues and staff at his premises on Kersley’s Manchester Road on Friday with drinks, nibbles – and a live singer! 

Said Phil: “It’s been an interesting 20 years, a very tough industry, but, there’s been more highs than lows. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years though, which seems to have flown by. Many thanks to our customers and of course, my staff.”

Phil, who has been a member and committed FSB activist for more than a decade, added: “Being part of FSB has been a real help, very much like being part of a big business community. Their legal helpline has also been fantastic, providing peace of mind 24/7.”
