Established in 1993 as Chris Lewis Security Services, Chris Lewis Group has had a long and exciting history. With nearly 30 years of experience in the fire and security industry, we have worked hard to continually enhance and improve homes, businesses, and schools across the UK.
We have grown swiftly with innovation at the forefront, always keeping on top of the latest technology and trends and beginning Chris Lewis Smart Home (formerly Lewis Building Technology) in 2008.
The year it all began. Chris Lewis Group was founded as Chris Lewis Security Services in 1993. This same year saw us hire our first engineer, join the ECA, and design a 31-day video management system with a support contract, which was sold to Oxford Security Services.
Within a year, we had 100 clients, dedicated on-call engineers, and 24-hour service. In this same year we built our first website and developed the Chris Lewis Video Management System.
In 2015, Chris Lewis took Control4 as a major platform for Smart Home, marking a moment of huge innovation and change in the world of smart technology. In this same year we started customer feedback electronic replies and Chris Lewis himself became one of the Top 50 Most Influential People in Security and Fire- 2015 IFSEC Global.
In 2016, Chris Lewis became The Chris Lewis Group as part of a new rebranding, this merged the two halves of the business – Smart Home and Fire & Security. We were also nominated over 25 times to be finalists in the UK Fire and Security Awards and completed the St Anthony’s College Investcorp Building, designed by the late Dame Zaha Hadid.
Once we accomplished 25-years in business, after winning contracts for the historical royal palaces in 2017, we completed the Beecroft Building for Oxford University, with 2 more apprentices winning Apprentices of the Year at the National Security Exhibition in the same year.
After the appointment of Luke Lewis-Rippington as Commercial Director in 2019, and with a huge background of nearly 30 years in the Fire and Security Sector, we are constantly innovating, growing, and providing exceptional customer service. With a Cloud Service Platform being introduced and customer service ticketing being established, even in 2020 we were well-equipped to guide customers in all their fire, security, and smart technology needs. Our expertise, innovation, and unparalleled customer service sets us apart, driving Chris Lewis through into 2021 and all future endeavours.
