Our Story – The History of Secure Engineering

New logo
Our story begins in October 1988, when a young man established a company that would make industrial sites safe and reliably secure, using the best CCTV cameras and the most trusted engineering techniques. The young man was Sole Proprietor, Clifford Corne and the company was Secure Engineering.

Clifford’s interest in the world of security and his electronic engineering experience learnt during eight years working within the Ministry of Defence, led him to create a company of his own. From the beginning, the customer base leaned towards large utility providers including water companies, sewage treatment works and power stations. The team soon expanded to include a team of engineers, a sales manager and an office manager.

In 1995, Secure Engineering moved from sole proprietorship to become a limited company. At this time, the company was providing cutting edge security solutions for the railway industry, together with local councils and power stations in the south. The company moved to a larger office in Maidstone and the team grew further to cope with the demand. In 2000 the company moved to a new office complex; a stunning converted barn overlooking the Weald of Kent.

Today we have developed our services to include radar systems, access control, site lighting, and other specialist security solutions. Our team of dedicated staff has also continued to grow. You can meet the team and find out more about them.

Steady growth in the industrial and commercial security industry have helped to build a company that over 30 years has made an important contribution to the security and safety of the UK. Our longstanding customers are happy to testify to the high level of service that we deliver.
