Midland tech firm lifted through major contract win

Leading Midland technology company, Ecl-ips has played a key role in supplying equipment for the owner of the world’s largest elevator testing tower.

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 advanced 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 filmmaker Paul Duffy from Diamond Ocean, Ecl-ips installed the high-tech cameras in the tower through the nine-month project.

Founder and managing director of Ecl-ips, Aaron Kernaghan commented: “I am delighted that our knowledge on CCTV systems and software was recognised by Oleo International and the project lead, filmmaker 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 elevator sector.”

Managing director of Diamond Ocean and an advisor to Oleo International, Paul Duffy 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.”

With more than a decade of expertise on, supplying and supporting CCTV systems; access control solutions; power monitoring, and backup systems to improve efficiency and reduce IT downtime, Ecl-ips has continued with a sustained period of growth in the education and industrial sectors this year.
