Industrial: (adjective) This category ranges from smaller properties, often called "Flex" or "R&D" properties, to larger office service or office warehouse properties to the very large "big box" industrial properties. In most cases, these businesses are not open to the public and are conducting "Business to Businesses," operations. E.G. Farms, Factories, warehouses, data centre, assembly lines.

Our belief in Industry

At APG we understand the problems faced by industrial businesses as most of our companies across the group would come into this category and when in more of an industrial/commercial environment it is easy to ignore certain threats.

As they don’t ‘feel relevant’ or business owners decided they are not affected by certain crimes e.g. robbery due to a remote rural local or fire because there is no flammable present.

Industrial sized needs & ARK

ARK’s customers in the industrial sector often use the Alarm Response & Key Holding service, with alarms being activated in large remote areas it isn’t always convenient or safe for the business owner to attend.

Additionally, the Weekly Bell Testing is another popular service, as customers often have multiple sites and multiple buildings which have their own intruder/fire alarms and it is critical that all systems are 100% operational at all times.

Mobile Patrols are another important service in this sector to be used as required the benefit of this not only is your business. You send the message that  “Someone is here 24/7.” This is a huge deterrent when coupled with CCTV.
