THE HISTORY OF BERKELEY GUARD
Berkeley Guard was founded in 1982 by Julian Berkeley, second son of Sir Lennox Berkeley, musician and composer and it is still a privately owned family business today. Little advertising is done as many clients come from referrals.
Initially Berkeley Guard systems were installed mostly in the west end of London from our office in Notting Hill Gate. In 1989 our administration moved to the Berkshire / Hampshire borders. Berkeley Guard purchased Burglarm Security of Romsey in 2006 and the Berkeley Guard Group was formed.
Burglarm Security was founded by John Tongs in 1968 in Southampton. The Company moved to larger premises at Romsey on the M3/M27 corridor in 1998. Burglarm prided itself in its ability to install and maintain large commercial CCTV systems as well as domestic and commercial Intruder Alarms and Access Control Systems. In 2006 Burglarm Security was purchased by Berkeley Guard Ltd and the Berkeley Guard Group was formed.
