We’re a company that has a strong sense of identity and are clear about the service that we want to provide. Our customer’s journey is important to us because we work hard to build lasting relationships.
It starts with our Security Consultants, who initially visit your business to get a detailed understanding of your needs and recommending the right solution for your site. Then a quality installation and good training so you’re confident in your new security equipment, to ongoing support and maintenance. Every step is important to us.
We know the importance of security and what it means to our customers: our team in the UK and Ireland are committed to providing a quality product and excellent local service.
Every day we try to demonstrate the core values of Almas; professionalism, transparency and honesty.

Your UK & Ireland team
Providing the security for your business
I joined Almas in November 2016 excited by the innovative products, opportunities within the security sector and the ambitious growth plans of the group. Culturally we have seen a real positive shift in the last year. Outside of work I’m an avid armchair fan of most sports, sadly the Nottingham Forest glory days are a fading memory. Musically I’m stuck in the greatest era (IMO) of the late 80’s and early 90’s indie / Britpop scene. Married with two wonderful daughters, of that high school age!
Julia Maxton Close
I joined Almas in March 2009 because the biometrics market excited me. There’s been lots of change since then and we’ve worked hard in the last couple of years to make our company culture one in which people feel they are valued and enjoy coming to work. Our focus is on delivering quality security solutions and service to small and medium sized businesses across the UK and Ireland and we are constantly evolving to deliver those goals. Outside work, I’m involved in the social side of my local rugby club including organising charity ladies’ lunches. Musically I’m a bit of a rock chick, but conversely love ballet and opera (watching rather than performing).
UK Sales Director
I joined Almas Industries in October 2017 and have not looked back. Work is a very enjoyable part of my life! What attracted me to Almas was the innovative and varied products along with the investment in and growth of the team. They really have built a great culture and reward hard work, I know I can continue to build a great career here! I am the eldest of 3 children and love spending time with my family. The latest addition to the family is my nephew Max who I love to spoil. Not forgetting my Miniature Dachshund Winston who rules our home. I am very sociable and always make time for the girls and trips abroad.
UK Security Consultant
I am a Security Consultant and thoroughly enjoy getting to work with clients on their sites. I like working at Almas as they focus on bringing the best out of people, helping them grow in their role, and the security solutions we provide make a big difference to people and businesses. Outside of work I am a giant nerd who loves all things techy and nerdy. My favourite experience was going to Comic con in San Diego dressed in full costume!
Installation and Service Manager
I joined the team as I appreciate the core values of the company and I felt that there is room for progress within the role. I look after Fleet administration, SSAIB & Health and Safety and installation with overall general administrative duties. I enjoy taking on new challenges and excited about the future with Almas. Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends and family, I have two children a little boy who’s 3 and a little girl who’s 2. I wouldn’t say I have any hobbies but I enjoy walking and binge watching series.
UK Head of Operations
I joined Almas in January 2023 to contribute to their vision of fostering innovation and technological advances in the security solution sector. My role revolves around overseeing the technical team, ensuring our clients receive world-class installation and after-sales service support. I enjoy developing my team, encouraging them to problem solve and look at ways of continually improving the operation. Outside of work I like to stay quite active, my biggest personal achievement is completing an Iron Man distance triathlon. Family time is important to me, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two teen boys and 5 year old daughter.
Logistics and Workload Planner
I joined Almas because I believed it to be an exciting opportunity to learn a new sector, new skills, and progress internally. I enjoy the process of planning the installations, helping it to run as smooth and efficiently as possible. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my daughter Belle, drawing portraits and doing art in general. I also like to travel when possible, anything outside of the ordinary works for me.
Ireland Sales Director
I joined the company in June 2008. I was intrigued by the products that the company offered. I quickly learned and found my feet. I worked my way up in the sales team and now look after the day to day running and mentoring of the entire team. Outside of work, I am a massive music fan and regularly attend music gigs in Ireland and abroad. I’ve taken up playing the guitar and the ukulele! I’m mother to a wonderful daughter Molly, partner to a great guy called Adrian and we have a very lively 7 month old Cockapoo puppy called Buddy.
UK Head of Customer Services
I have been with the company since 2010 and enjoy my role as I get to meet and speak to so many people. Its great building relationships with businesses and seeing how our products help them to feel more secure. I am married with 2 children and 2 step children, although they are hardly children anymore, ages ranging from 33 to 25. Also 3 grandchildren! I adore cooking so most of my spare time is spent pottering around the kitchen trying new recipes and cooking styles. We’ve just got a German shepherd puppy called Darcy who is growing every day.
I joined Almas in January 2017 and have the best team with me, I couldn’t have achieved half the things I have without them. They are the best work family out there. I try to help everyone as much as possible, as I try to think how they must feel in their situation. I grew up in Nantwich, Cheshire and in Perth, Australia. I live with two beautiful princess cats, they are my world! Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing, baking and video games. I love, cats, dinosaurs, Harry Potter and penguins.
I really enjoying helping people and fixing technology, therefore working in the Technical Support part of Almas was a perfect job for me. We pride ourselves on offering great customer service and when things go wrong, we want to make sure that it’s solved, quickly. Outside of work I enjoy working on my car and car shows. I also love tattoos and dogs. I help my partner’s place of work, The Alice Charity, that supports families in the Stoke area. I’m a Father of 3 nightmares between 8 and 13 years old!

I enjoy tailoring our products to meet our customers’ needs, supporting them with the very best in security solutions with great customer service. My fiancé and I have recently welcomed our first child, Dexter, into the world. Our world has been turned upside down but for the better. As a family we enjoy our holidays with our favourite destinations being Disneyland Florida and Thailand.
UK Senior Security Consultant
I started working for Almas because I was attracted to the company values about putting the customers’ needs first. I enjoy my day-to-day role as it takes me all over London and I get to meet lots of interesting people. I love sport and can talk about it all day long! I actually trained as an actor, and did a lot of vocal work, but in the absence of an offer to be the next 007, Almas is a great place to work.

I was born in the Scottish Borders and have been living in Ireland since 1992. I am now in my 6th year working for Almas Industries My main hobby outside of work is to DJ, I still love doing gigs after over 30 years and I also love going to see live bands whenever I can.

There is always someone in the team who is there to help which is a real bonus.
