CSS was established in 1986 by three brothers Jim, Pat and Paul Connelly. All three had spent some thirty-five years between them working within the security industry for well known national companies. They identified a gap in the market for a family owned company that was genuinely committed to customer service. CSS opened for business in the summer of 1986 from a small office in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow. The business grew at a steady and controlled rate and achieved many land marked goals such as “Investors in People”, which was a Scottish first for a security systems company. They opened an alarm receiving centre at a time when many were closing down or being transferred to other countries.
The development has been very fruitful in demonstrating the long-term goals of the business in responding to the needs and demands of the customer base right across Scotland. By the end of 2002 CSS had outgrown three business premises occupied in Bishopbriggs and had a purpose built operating facility and new Alarm Receiving Centre built in Glasgow. This facility was completed in the summer of 2004.
