A private detective agency based in Preston is currently expanding its business.

EJMInvestigations, located at Cottam Court on Church Street, deals with a variety of clients including the public, local government and local solicitors firms.

Owner Edmund Magdziarek started the Preston-based firm in 2003, and it continues to grow from strength to strength, with a new successful branch which opened in Manchester last year.

The firm is now celebrating after recently launching its brand new office in Liverpool a few weeks ago.

The Private Investigators has also just gained the first membership of a Lancashire Agency into the World Association of Private Investigations.

The Agency has dealt with interesting stories, including tracing a driver of a Preston delivery company who claimed to be on long-term sick, despite always being stuck for money.

Suddenly the driver had new-found wealth, and it was believed that the employee was working elsewhere whilst collecting his sick pay.

A short period of surveillance by EJMInvestigations confirmed this, and enough evidence was obtained, leading the agent to approach the driver in the office car park.

Using a cover story, the agency was able to get the employee to admit were he had been working and for how long.

The report was then passed to the delivery firm who checked their records and discovered the supplies firm was a client of theirs and they had numerous delivery notes that had been signed by the “sick” employee.

Edmund Magdziarek, who is the sole employee of the business, said: “Every day is different. Whether we’re dealing with a cheating partner or a witness in a court case.

“Regardless of the good or bad news we work with, we are helping people and ultimately give them hope when they come to us with a problem.”

Edmund feels the launch of the website has massively helped the growth of the Agency, as they build pages relevant to the towns they work in and so it makes sense to direct the business there, with future hopes of locating a branch in Leeds.
