Huge congratulations to Jim and Barb McGrath from Complete Security Service of Frodsham as this month they celebrate 35 very successful years in business.

Following a career as an electrician working on oil rigs and power stations Jim, along with his wife Barb set up Complete Security Service, or CSS as most of us refer to it on 4th July 1983. Over the last 35 years the business has grown substantially, covering the whole of the North West and employes over twenty local staff, including both daughters; Lyn is Accounts Manager and Sue is the Senior Administrator and so it has become a true family affair.

CSS are mostly known locally for their alarm installation and maintenance, not surprisingly as they are responsible for over 1,000 systems in Frodsham alone! However, Monitoring Systems, CCTV and Telecoms (telephone systems / telephone points) also make up a large part of the business.

CSS has looked after our home monitored alarm system for the last 19 years and I have to say that the service has been brilliant and police response was rapid when accidentally the alarm was triggered by a feathered intruder entering our garage! To us, the peace of mind that this brings is priceless. I’m also very grateful that CSS have advertised in every edition of Helsby to Hand, since it’s launch in 2005.

In addition to the many domestic properties that are protected by Complete Security Service, CSS also look after many commercial properties such as restaurants, museums, chippies, offices, nightclubs and local authorities to name but a few. Keyholding, fire alarms and extinguishers along with security lighting also play a large part in the total security service that is on offer.

It’s no wonder that they have won numerous industry specific awards, with many framed certificates proudly adorning the walls.

Over the years the CSS headquarters on Townfield Lane in Frodsham has been extended and developed to the rear to accommodate the expanding business, which is essentially five businesses under the one umbrella. I couldn’t believe the size of it on my recent visit, it goes on and on! There’s offices, meeting rooms as well as a large stock room with a vast range of equipment and products.

CSS give a lot back to the community, Jim and Barb have always been more than happy to offer sponsorship to local football clubs and teams as well as supporting local darts, dominoes and music events plus charity fund-raisers in conjunction with Liverpool Football Club.

Proud sponsors of the CSS North West Darts event which featured Phil Taylor, stage sponsor for Frodsham Charity Music Festival and Frodsham On The Hill Festival as well as official Club sponsor for NWAFA Social Football for over 18’s. Also, Frodsham Junior Football Club, including support with the 3G at 40 fund-raising campaign to build a 3G pitch at Helsby High School. An Evening with Kevin Keegan was another popular event, held locally that was also sponsored by Complete Security Service.

Well done Team CSS.... enjoy the celebrations!
