"The Head of the Installations team ran an efficient operation and brought the best out of all his staff. He has been a voice of calm and reason throughout and has worked solidly for six weeks to ensure that the right kit was on the right desk at the right time - and that it worked."

Combining an incident alarm and public address system
"I would like to express my thanks for a job well done by FCO Services. This was a well-managed programme delivered to the standard we wanted, and a price we could afford.

In my opinion it represents good value for money and fits neatly with our objective to supply our estate with standardised systems that are simple to operate and easy to use."
