How we got here

FLR Spectron is a business services company with its origins in telecommunications, whether fixed line or mobile services. FLR Spectron grew and established itself as a leading provider of B2B services while recognising that the business needed to broaden its service offering beyond just telecommunications.
We started an IT solution through acquisition, later moved into CCTV and monitoring through another addition and now operate one of the top 5 ARC facilities in the UK. Later on, we acquired a refrigeration services company that installs and maintains air conditioning and refrigeration solutions for the business and residential areas. More recently, we incorporated our Interiors division, dedicated to space planning and design.
