3. Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less? 

 Challenging, Rewarding, Dedication

4. What has been your biggest success, and biggest challenge to date?

We have only recently opened so it is difficult to answer this but success for us would be to see growth in our first year and hopefully be in a position to bring on new personnel and apprentices in year 2.

5. What does the future hold for your company?

We seek to develop our wealth of experience of security with the latest technological advances in security systems. The world is becoming an increasingly insecure place and we intend to grow with technology to allow businesses to protect themselves.

We also offer a domestic type service to help those vulnerable upgrade their security and offer the latest access control systems for the elderly and disabled.

We seek to keep learning and moving forward to become the most specialist security firm in Northern Ireland.

6. What advice would you give to someone starting a business? 

Work hard, strive to succeed and learn from your mistakes.

7. How long have you been located at Twin Spires Complex and what are the benefits of / reasons for locating here?

Our business has just recently opened but already we have benefited from the heavy traffic on the falls road and Northumberland street. It is no hidden secret that this area has become a great hub for security companies and we hope that will stand by us in our first year of trading.

Do you want to say anything to Ortus as it celebrates its 30th year in business?

Congratulations and we hope to be as successful in 30 years time.
