The existing building is now fully owned by VRC & APG.

On Tuesday 27th November, VRC purchased the building from the landlord at a Maggs and Allen Auction. The building itself is used as Remote Video Receiving Centre that VRC has been in for over 10 years. The Alpha Centre, Armstrong Way is located in Yate, Bristol. The building is described as A modern and well-presented industrial unit situated on a popular industrial estate in Yate.

Craig De-Lara (VRC Operations Director) said the following:

“The purchase of The Alpha Centre is a great sign of intent by the business and equally provides both the confidence and security to our employees and our customers, that VRC means business. Not only are we independently owned, but we now also own the property in which we deliver our core services. As significant as it is, this is just the first step in the grand scheme and will allow us to focus on our growth plans for many years to come.”

These property acquisitions will help us improve VRC service provision for our customers and partners. With the ownership of The Alpha Centre confirmed, VRC can now focus its attention on their exciting phased upgrade and expansion plans to the facility, which includes improved training facilities and a fresh, modern feel with improved technical abilities in our Alarm Receiving Centre, at the heart of our business. These improvements will ensure our employees receive the very best levels of training and our customers receive an exemplary service, each and every time.

Watch this space for further updates… we can’t wait.
