About Hoyles Electronic Developments Ltd

Founded in 1965 by ex-fireman, Jack Hoyle, Hoyles Electronic Developments is a third generation UK family business that designs and manufactures niche electronic security, access control, fire and safety equipment. Hoyles’ products can be found in buildings throughout the world, helping to protect the things that matter most to customers - their People and their Business Premises.

Known and respected throughout the security and protection industry as the installers’ manufacturer of choice, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide all customers with the same personal level of service. We have been in the industry long enough to know that every installation is critical - no matter how big or small the job is.

Our extensive product range is manufactured exclusively in the UK at our purpose-built premises in St Helens and includes trusted brands, such as Exitguard, Aidalarm, Multiguard and Interguard. All Hoyles products are designed and manufactured within the scope of our ISO9001 quality management system which we have held since 1994. Nothing leaves the building until we are happy to put our name on it.

Hoyles is a responsible business that has been built over the last 45 years on family values and strong customer relationships. It is our aim to maintain this approach well into the future; developing products we are proud of that meet the changing needs of our customers.

On his retirement from St Helens Fire Brigade Jack Hoyle decided to start Hoyles in 1965.

This was prompted by the 1963 Shops Offices and Railway Premises Act coming into force when Jack saw the opportunity to sell fire, safety and security equipment to businesses. 

This photograph was taken in 1965 at an exhibition that announced the start of the business. The Exhibition was held at Parr Stocks Road Fire Station St Helens. We believe it was taken by a Fire Brigade Photographer.
