Evolution Security is now providing services to Lothian Buses, the publicly owned bus company in Scotland. Lothian Buses has 2000 employees and a fleet of more than 700 vehicles delivering 70 services in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas of Midlothian and East Lothian.
The firm has four main garages to keep vehicles serviced and maintained. Responsibility for protecting the property rests with Facilities Manager Neil Aitken. For fire safety provision, Neil recently turned to Evolution. He said: “Given the history of the company, and the range of property we own, we have a diverse range of fire systems all of which need to be serviced and maintained. Evolution supports us not only by servicing and maintaining our legacy investment, but also by recommending and installing new systems when they are required to ensure that our fire safety is never compromised.”
Evolution supports the systems installed across eight sites – a mix of technologies including alarm panels, radio systems and ancillaries from a range of manufacturers. It has a set of established Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) with the bus operator with agreed response times for a service that is delivered 24/7, 365 days.
Nigel Hyson, Area Sales Manager for Evolution in Scotland, says: “Working with disparate third-party systems is something that is only achievable through our depth of knowledge and experience. Working with Lothian Buses challenges us not only to maintain what’s there, but also provide best advice on new systems and technologies when change is required.”
