Since TI Security was established in 1969, we have built a nationwide reputation on our standards of service. As the company rapidly expanded, and so the premises, we moved from Barwick in Elmet to Garforth, Leeds. We are situated in a prime location where we can easily access the M1 and M62 allowing the engineers to travel all around the country at ease.
