London success sparks major growth for Cheshire firm

32

A Knutsford-based provider of intelligent technologies and home automation solutions has announced 30 per cent year-on-year growth as it capitalises upon the exploding Internet of Things (IoT) movement.

To meet overwhelming demand, award-winning Intecho has also expanded its team, with the creation of five new engineering and project support posts

With the IoT market predicted to be worth £81 billion to the UK’s economy by 2020 , Intecho has quickly established itself as a leading supplier of smart technologies to some of the UK’s most exclusive and high-profile hospitality venues including The Ivy, Sexy Fish Restaurant and Annabel’s night club.

Paul Murphy, director and co-founder at Intecho, commented: “As the reality of smart homes and buildings becomes tangible, we’re seeing unprecedented demand from the hospitality sector as it too looks to deliver the intelligent and reactive environment consumers are increasingly expecting.

“The evolution of technology has enabled the control and automation of a building so that it can respond, intelligently, to the needs, preferences and behaviours of its inhabitants. Through a powerful combination of expertise, creativity and attention to detail, we can bring to life our clients’ buildings through intuitive changes in light, temperature, entertainment and ambience.

“Our new appointments will help to bolster our team enabling us to continue to drive forward our ambitious growth plans, as we aim to become the go-to supplier of highly sophisticated building systems both within the commercial and high-end residential markets.”

Founded in 2010 by Paul Murphy and Ben Patterson, Intecho specialises in custom built lighting and building control systems and has completed a raft of prestigious contracts in the London hospitality market and beyond.

Projects have included bringing to life the vision of the internationally acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, providing smart lighting systems to enhance artworks at Annabel’s and Sexy Fish Restaurant, and installing lighting that can be dimmed for individual tables at The Ivy.

In addition to its London-based work, Intecho has completed projects with the Motel One chain, including two in Manchester and one in Glasgow, which has since become the city’s largest hotel.

Intecho is also working on a number of large-scale residential projects, as well as the refurbishment of Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa on Lake Windermere.
