The Company has started a new contract to supply security guarding at Southgate House in Gloucester close to the Gloucester Docks area. This is the first instruction from a new client, SSIFM, in what we hope will be followed by further opportunities. Southgate House is a recently refurbished four storey office building and in addition to guarding we will shortly be looking at the CCTV and access control facilities also.
Hortons’ Estate Ltd, continuing their policy of purchasing and developing properties, had a requirement for Integrity to provide security guarding to Old Dalby Business Park. We responded to the request at very short notice when the ‘deal was done’. Our quick response was further required when the incumbent supplier withdrew their service without adhering to the notice period. We are pleased to announce that we quickly took action to ensure that the security of the site was not compromised.
Continuing the relationship with the Company’s oldest customer we have been appointed by Horton’s Estate Ltd to provide security services to their latest property acquisition in Lichfield.
The site has been purchased by our client with a view to future development, an activity for which Hortons’ Estate Ltd has enjoyed considerable recent success.
Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation have instructed the Company to both upgrade existing CCTV systems and to provide and install additional equipment as they begin a programme of review and improvement across their property portfolio. In addition to CCTV services we also provide security guarding, fire alarm and intruder alarm services to many properties in Letchworth.
In December we finished work on one of our largest CCTV projects to date. We were appointed by Capita Plc on behalf of Royal London Mutual Insurance Society, who own the site as part of their pension fund portfolio, to upgrade the security of Tinsley Industrial Estate in Sheffield. This major project included the provision of new security gates, access control and a high-specification monitored CCTV system.
In addition to our certification for both Safe Contractor and CHAS the Company decided to upskill all of it’s Supervisors, Managers and Directors by enrolling them on a course to obtain The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Safety for Senior Executives qualification. This was part of the Company’s continuing focus on Health and Safety and a determination to instil good practice and awareness at all levels. Needless to say all staff passed with flying colours!
Integrity Security Group is proud to announce that we have been appointed by Friendship Foods Ltd, a frozen foods wholesaler, to provide guarding services at their headquarters near Birmingham. Once again we were able to respond to the new instruction at extremely short notice, the sort of flexible approach that has enabled the Company to take on even the most challenging of tasks.
Following the detailed and exacting external audits of Integrity during September we are pleased to announce that not only have we maintained our Approved Contractor Status under the Security Industry Authority scheme but we have also increased our score.
This improved score places the Company within the top 08% performing companies within the private security sector, and represents the hard work by all of the staff both on customer sites and at our offices.
In addition to the above we have also again secured accreditation to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004. Both of these accreditations were also achieved with no major or minor non-conformances for the sixth year in a row.
A warm welcome also to David Coates who has joined Integrity as Senior Contracts Manager to assist with Operations and business development.
With over ten years in the security industry he’s a highly valued new member of the Integrity team.
Having previously working for a national security provider based in Birmingham he brings a wealth of experience and professionalism to the role, and has also previously worked with both Will Adams and Tony Turner in past years.
Integrity would like to welcome three new administrative staff to our Solihull office.
