Mansfield-based TIS is celebrating after becoming the latest business to gain a prestigious patron status at the East Midlands Chamber – joining an impressive group of successful and influential companies.

Founded in 1951, TIS is one of the UK’s leading independent firms of fire, security and communications specialists.

A privately-owned company, it develops some of the most advanced and sophisticated systems for industry, the Ministry of Defence and local authorities.

Employing more than 140 staff at its Mansfield headquarters, on Oakham Business Park, the firm also operates offices in Birmingham and Nottingham, which were opened to cope with business expansion and demand.

James Twigg, managing director of the combined services division at TIS said: “We are very excited to become a new patron of the East Midlands Chamber.

“We see the relationship as mutually beneficial, as we can bring vital security and fire systems expertise to the chamber and its members and hopefully can engage with the members to improve both their systems and the service levels they receive.”

The chamber currently has 23 patrons.
