Speaking about the new contract, Stuart Lodge (CEO of Lodge Security) informed Risk Xtra: “Following a very thorough tendering process, we’re delighted to have been selected from an extensive list of candidate suppliers. We’ve worked with Cineworld Group plc over a number of years, providing test purchasing, investigations and compliance audits. I believe that it was our ability to showcase the range and quality of our services, and demonstrate that we could support the business with its guarding requirements, that secured the partnership with such a major international brand in the leisure industry.”

Lodge added: “Like ourselves, Cineworld Group plc has a key focus on personnel development and customer service, so it’s very exciting to align and work together with the business. We’re looking forward to continuing this long-term partnership, providing security services to the highest standards in conjunction with effective solutions.”
