In 1964 Eddie Tanner started his Electrical apprenticeship with RL Mann Electrical Contractors based in Frinton-on-Sea.

In 1970 after 5 years apprenticeship and College (City & Guilds Electrical Installation Course), Eddie decided to start his own business trading as E.G Tanner Electrical. The business grew steadily over the coming years but it was in the early 80’s Eddie noticed a niche in the market.

The first burglar alarm installations were in installed in some of the larger residential dwellings in Frinton’s Avenues. Eddie continued his Electrical work but the call for burglar alarm installations began to grow. Numerous installations continued in Kirby, Walton, Clacton, Harwich, Colchester, Manningtree, Dedham, Chelmsford and other towns and villages in Essex and Suffolk. Thus establishing Frinton Alarm Systems Ltd as one of the first security companies in East Anglia.

Residentially and commercially intruder alarms, fire alarms systems, CCTV and door entry also started to be installed. The demand for security installations and maintenance was vastly expanding. Eddie decided to dedicate all his time to security and slowly phased out electrical work.

In 1996 Frinton Alarm Systems Ltd took over Systems 2000 installations, adding to the expansion of maintenance contracts.

In 1996 F.A.S became a member of A.I.S.C. (Alarms Inspectorate & Security Council Ltd) now known as S.S.A.I.B. (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board) who regularly inspect all aspects of the business and enabling Frinton Alarm Systems Ltd to install Police monitored domestic and commercial systems.

Their son, Paul, became the third member of the team in 2001. He brought prior knowledge of security systems and qualified to City & Guilds with S.S.A.I.B accreditation in Security, Fire and Emergency alarm systems.

In January 2010 Frinton Alarm Systems Ltd were awarded a certificate of excellence by S.S.A.I.B. recognising high levels of competence in all installations to British and European standards.

Frinton Alarm Systems Ltd is now one of East Anglia’s most popular choices of security and alarm installers priding themselves on offering a personal family service with over 30 years experience in security systems.
