Corps Security has won a three-plus-two-year contract to provide security services for French international bank BNP Paribas in London. The integrated security partnership involves security guarding and event guarding services together with close protection services and systems monitoring from Corps Security’s Monitoring Centre in Glasgow.
BNP Paribas operates in 77 countries and is the world’s seventh largest bank by assets. It was formed by the merger of Banque Nationale de Paris and Paribas in 2000, but its history stretches back to its first foundation in 1848 as a national bank.
To fulfil the contract, more than 40 Corps Security colleagues will work across four sites in the capital including three in the City together with Harewood Avenue in Marylebone (pictured).
Mike Bullock, CEO of Corps Security, said: “BNP Paribas was founded in 1848, just 11 years before Corps Security. We’re delighted to be working in partnership with one of the most established names in the banking world to deliver a truly innovative security offer.”
