Abel through the decades
Over 50 years of security expertise
Abel was founded in 1965
Abel Alarm was founded by Mr Peter J Eyre in 1965, when he decided to leave the security firm where he had worked for 17 years to start his own business. Abel has grown to be one of the largest privately owned security firms in the UK. Today, Mr Eyre’s grandson, Joel Mulloy, runs the business and is the Managing Director.
