Bowlplex Ltd is a national group of family entertainment centres, is a multi-site business with 17 venues across England, Scotland and Wales.
Operating for over 20 years, Bowlplex has grown to provide industry leading ten-pin bowling, late night licensed bars, video arcades, American pool and soft play to both the public and corporate customers.
As part of providing a safe and secure environment for their customers, Bowlplex needed to ensure all their sites were compliant with current legislation and provided the best protection in the event of an emergency.
Stuart MacLachlan, Engineering Manager for Bowlplex says “We chose Assured as they are one of the few companies who can provide all the fire and security services we require on a nationwide level, including Ansul kitchen fire suppression with their own directly employed engineers. By consolidating all our compliance related services with Assured we have made financial savings of 19%. The communication we receive from Assured on works carried out at our centres also gives me the confidence and peace of mind that we are compliant at all times, meaning I’m able to spend more time concentrating on the business.”
Simon Stokes, Managing Director at Assured comments “The savings made by Bowlplex are significant and a prime example of how incorporating fire and security services to one supplier makes financial sense. We install and service fire alarm systems, fire extinguishers, CCTV, intruder alarms, fire
suppression, access control systems, emergency lighting, fire risk assessments and fire awareness training—in fact any fire safety or security service. By bringing these services to one supplier and using multi-skilled engineers, we are able to consolidate our maintenance visits and provide a more streamlined service, saving both time and money for the client without compromising quality.”
