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.

Reviews & Testimonials

Some of the lovely things our clients are saying

"I would like to say that Abel's engineer today, Carl (Manchester & Sheffield)  was fantastic. He really is a credit to your company and far exceeded my expectations. He was polite, professional and helpful throughout. I wish I had lads like him working for me! I will be definitely using Abel again when I'm working in the north. The whole team has been fantastic, Abel treated me as a valid customer from start to finish."
 Shaun Grainger, Citadel
"We used Abel Alarm for the installation of our intrusion system. This company is so reliable and helpful that I decided to use them again to install our fire alarms. It's the best move our club as made. 10 out of 10 from me. Thank you."
Kenneth Deakin
"We greatly value our partnership with Abel Alarm and have worked with them for many years for installation of intruder alarm systems to plots within our many development sites throughout the South West of England. We've always found Abel competitive, reliable and responsive."
Kevin Murch, C G Fry & Son
"I am really glad we have Abel on our side. The feedback received from the National Security Advisor to the Arts Council only reassures me we have done the right thing to engage with you early in the project phase. I think UNN received specialist design advice from Abel early enough to shape the scheme and no external electrical engineer consultant would be able to contribute in the same way."
Michael Luczun, Project Manager
"The Abel team could not have been more diligent. It was clear that their main priority was the safety of me and my staff, as well as the building. Their professionalism is second to none. I feel safe that the exterior presence of the new, well maintained alarm box and the CCTV cameras are keeping us protected."
Sara Lovatt, Urban Antidote Art
