Midland technology firm lifted through major contract win

Posted 6 October 2015 · Add Comment

A leading Midland technology company has played a key role in supplying equipment for the owner of the world's largest elevator testing tower.

Aaron Kernaghan, Phil Seedhouse, Scott Ashenden and Paul Duffy.

Bromsgrove-based Ecl-ips, a specialist IT and software solutions firm, has installed and advised on a network of time-lapse CCTV systems in a 32-metre high test facility for Coventry-based energy absorption experts, Oleo International.

The contract, which was the latest in a line of new client wins for the company, saw Ecl-ips installing digital systems and high-tech software to record the tower’s construction and vital safety data during the testing of buffers which are designed for high speed elevators.

Working in partnership with film maker Paul Duffy from Diamond Ocean, Ecl-ips installed the high-tech cameras in the tower through the nine-month project.

Aaron Kernaghan, managing director of Ecl-ips said: “I am delighted that our knowledge on CCTV systems and software was recognised by Oleo International and the project lead, film maker Paul Duffy. It was a challenging project but our team rose to that challenge – especially on the technical and installation side.

“It’s a tremendous coup for us to work with such a respected global company as Oleo International and we hope it will lead to us securing further contracts in the multi-million elevator sector.”

Paul Duffy, managing director of Diamond Ocean and an advisor to Oleo International, added: “Aaron and the team at Ecl-ips delivered everything we wanted and more on what was a rare, but high-profile project. They had exactly the right experience and commitment needed to make it happen.”

Mr Kernaghan added that Ecl-ips, which he founded in 2002, has continued with a sustained period of growth in the education and industrial sectors this year. Contract wins included a deal to install a new power supply and CCTV system at Anglesey Primary School in Birmingham.

Ecl-ips are experts in advising on, supplying and supporting CCTV systems, access control solutions, power monitoring and backup systems to improve efficiency and reduce IT downtime.

Oleo International is the trade name of TA Savery & Co Ltd. The firm has been operating for over 60 years and has over one million lift safety units in circulation worldwide.
