Integrity Security Group, which was formed by local entrepreneur and managing director Will Adams, has seen its dedicated approach to customer service and the development of its staff pay off, with continued expansion of the Facilities Management division the Company is going from strength to strength. The company has seen turnover grow from just £50,000 in the first year to more than £4.2 million for the last financial year and workforce numbers have risen from seven people to over 115 employees. “It has been a real whirlwind 15 years that’s for sure and the pace of growth doesn’t look like letting up just yet,” commented Will Adams.
We are pleased and proud to announce that for the 13th year in a row we have passed the external audits for ISO:9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001: Environmental Management System and Security Industry Authority: Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) without any major or minor non-conformances.
Integrity is delighted to have become members of Constructionline, achieving Silver status. Constructionline have been working with buyers and suppliers for 20 years – they work closely with their partners and have a deep understanding of buyers’ needs. At Constructionline, they pride themselves on opening up opportunities for members to access a wide range of procurement contracts and projects – and for buyers to access a validated pool of high-quality suppliers. Compliance is at the heart of what they do. Whether it’s getting to grips with new standards and requirements or updating their systems to enable buyers to search on a wider range of criteria, their longstanding experts keep ahead of changing regulations – and so does their platform. Not only do they work to enhance PAS 91 criteria, they also validate suppliers as ‘Deemed to satisfy’ for SSIP via their health and safety specialists at Acclaim. In using the Constructionline platform, buyers can expect to simplify and speed up their search, validation, and purchasing decision processes considerably, improving resource and cost efficiency.
Integrity recently renewed its continued membership of IFEDA. IFEDA, the Independent Fire Engineering & Distributors Association, was founded in 1989, to provide an independent representative body of fire trade companies. The objectives of IFEDA, as a trade association, are to support members and promote quality industry standards and procedures within the fire safety industry. IFEDA is also instrumental in promoting the benefits of these quality and professional industry standards to insurance companies, fire authorities, government departments and other fire trade companies. Leading the way in training IFEDA offers, amongst others, fire extinguisher training courses. IFEDA continues to champion third-party accreditation for fire risk assessments and their importance, following the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Fire risk assessments are an area often overlooked by businesses, and IFEDA, by assisting members and promoting quality and fire safety is keen to improve the industry standards of fire risk assessments delivered to business owners and industry as a whole.
