One Stop CCTV moves to acquire security systems distributor COP UK

ONE STOP CCTV Limited has acquired the share capital of COP UK. Based in Saddleworth on the outskirts of Manchester, COP UK was founded back in 1996 and now boasts over 20 years of experience gained as a distributor of CCTV and associated security products.

Through the years, COP UK has developed a strong reputation for customer service and support and, as such, has grown and developed to become one of the most respected security system distributors in the UK.

COP UK is authorised to distribute many of the leading security brands, among them Hikvision, TP-Link, LigoWave, GJD, TOA and Toshiba.

The company works closely with all of its long-term key system suppliers, ensuring continuity of stock and competitive pricing. This, in turn, allows installers to quote on projects with the confidence that COP UK can deliver.

Wherever possible, the business looks to sell UK-sourced products, such as hard drives, monitors, server racking and towers.

Fantastic opportunity

Haris Iqbal, managing director of One Stop CCTV, commented: “The acquisition of COP UK will provide a fantastic opportunity to grow the distribution business on a national basis with significant investment being introduced over the coming months. One Stop CCTV and COP UK now become the fastest-growing HIK Vision distribution business in the UK. This will facilitate rapid growth without compromising the exceptional quality of service for which COP UK has become renowned across the years. The knowledge and support of the experienced COP UK team will help to cultivate new opportunities for our customers in what is a very competitive market.”

Chris Bentley, managing director at COP UK, added: “The great news for our customers is that the acquisition will not be changing any of the core values that have made COP UK a successful business over the last 26 years. The investment One Stop CCTV brings will allow COP UK to expand in many areas and allow us to continue to provide exceptional customer support.”

James Bentley, general manager at COP UK, concluded: “COP UK has been a family business since its formation in 1996 and has always been firmly focused on service and support. I’m delighted that COP UK will receive the investment that will allow us to not only continue on this path, but also improve and expand both our product ranges and the teams actively supporting them.”

The existing COP UK management team led by Chris Bentley and James Bentley will remain in place and work with One Stop CCTV to grow the business over the coming years.
