Pointer Fire and Security Services celebrates its 50th Anniversary

Monday 01 August 2022 - BSIA

The specialist electronic fire and security services company Pointer is celebrating 50 years as a family owned business. There are several commemorative events occurring to celebrate Pointer’s customers, suppliers and dedicated colleagues to honour the occasion.

Though the company began in Glasgow in the domestic alarm business, it has grown with demand to amas offices across the UK and also in Oman, Thailand and the Philippines. With the growth, Pointer’s customer base evolved and has found the largest part of the business involves major projects within the utilities and custodial sectors.  

Pointer has trained over 300 apprentices across the UK, to date. The specialist company were announced as the winners of ‘SME Employer of the Year 2022’ at this years’ Scottish Apprenticeship Awards during Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

They won’t stop there as the introduction of mentoring, Intent Based Leadership and other initiatives, designed to enable and empower colleagues, is sure to create an environment for Pointer to thrive.

Director Sandy Rowan states: “We have come a long way in 50 years, but we still have further to travel on the road to excellence. If we share best practice across the business and remain focused on our customers we can take that next step. One team, one Pointer.”

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the Pointer journey, here is to another 50 years!
