Specialist security solutions provider Corps Security is celebrating after confirming a number of prestigious new account wins which have seen the company smash its annual sales target in the first six months of the business’ financial year.
With business confidence sweeping back into the UK security sector, Corps Security’s success mirrors the findings of a study earlier this year published by market analyst Plimsoll which found that half of the security companies questioned are increasing sales and improving profits, with a significant proportion of them delivering growth rates of up to 8%.
Corps Security’s most recent contract wins emanate from organisations in a range of diverse sectors including banking and finance and local Government, as well as a world famous art institute.
The company’s highly trained and skilled security officers have also been deployed at the Wellcome Trust’s London headquarters to protect one of the leading global charitable foundations which is dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements when it comes to both human and animal health. Indeed, the important work conducted by the Trust currently includes enabling an international consortium to accelerate the development of an Ebola vaccine.
Also in the healthcare sector, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust is benefiting from having Corps Security’s personnel as part of its on-site team. Corps Security won this contract after taking part in a competitive tender process with six other security providers, all of whom are part of the London Procurement Partnership framework.
In addition to physical security, Corps Security is responsible for supplying a range of patient supervisory services to protect doctors, nurses and patients in acute care, as well as ensuring that those individuals receiving treatment do not harm themselves. This is a particularly sensitive area and the company’s officers are given specialist training to ensure that they can operate under these types of extreme circumstances.
Fully-integrated solutions for end users
As is the case with all of its contract wins, Corps Security is able to demonstrate an ability to provide the highest levels of service and value for money. Customer feedback suggests that this is thanks to the company’s unique corporate structure and ability to develop a fully integrated solution for the end user that reduces spend and enhances protection by cost-effectively and efficiently combining the use of physical security with surveillance technology and remote monitoring.
Nik Flytzanis, Corps Security’s business development manager, is convinced that the company’s recent success is also due to organisations across all vertical sectors recognising the importance of using specialist providers rather than those offering ‘bundled’ services.
“Security is quite unlike any other service,” said Flytzanis. “Due to our clear focus and dedication to this field, we are able to provide a comprehensive solution that always meets our customers’ bespoke needs. I’m delighted that we’re now able to offer our expertise to prestigious organisations such as the Wellcome Trust and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, both of whom I’m fully confident will benefit enormously from our uniquely ethical and innovative approach to service delivery.”
