Enterprise security specialists

With a focus on building partnerships that thrive over decades, ATEC is the trusted choice for ensuring the security of the UK’s most demanding environments.

The History of ATEC

For more than three decades, ATEC has led the way forward in professional security system integration within the UK.

From hospitals to tourist attractions, universities and oil refineries, we bring deep technical understanding and unmatched customer service to every site we protect.

Founded in 1985, we have grown from a small business serving a physical security niche into a nationwide, full-service electronic security systems integrator staffed by an expert team of security professionals and trusted by hundreds of organisations across the country.

Our fundamental belief is that security comes not just from expertise and technology but also long-term, sustainable partnerships that endure over decades.


ATEC has a lengthy experience of working in some of the most challenging locations in the UK. The company knows how important health and safety is everywhere from critical national infrastructure to council offices and takes great pride in the accreditations we have achieved. We are committed to complying with the latest standards and these certifications are just one of the reasons why ATEC is seen as a safe pair of hands to partner with for the long term.

Building for the long term

ATEC Security’s business is based on creating long-term, sustainable relationships. This applies to every aspect of the company, from the technology partners we choose to work with to the training that our team goes through. It is all done to ensure that ATEC can provide our clients with the trust that makes them want to work with us for years. 

The history of ATEC has seen the company improve and expand our skillset as new technologies entered the market. We have moved from a purely physical security company to one that embraced the elements of electronic security technology. This saw ATEC move first into CCTV for smaller projects and then into large-scale town centre CCTV. As the technology advanced again, it was a small leap for ATEC to move into IP networked surveillance systems and fully integrated solutions covering everything from access control and ANPR to physical security barriers and HD CCTV cameras and storage.

The way we have achieved this is through extensive staff training so we have a true understanding of every security system we design. The result is more than three decades of happy clients all across the UK.


At ATEC we form long-term technology partnerships and encourage our whole team to develop a deep understanding of the technology we recommend. All of our technicians are certified by our technology partners so you can have confidence that when needed, they will know every component of your security system.
