Trigion Security’s combined service offer of security guarding and electronic security is proving popular with customers across different industries and, indeed, throughout the country, with the company announcing impressive new business growth of 20% in the second quarter of 2017.
The business’ tailored solutions – including its own remote Security Operations Centre – mean that it’s not limited by sector and has been able to secure contracts within the manufacturing and distribution sectors, as well as with publishing, food production and construction companies.
This 20% uptick is in line with Trigion Security’s plan for substantial growth in 2017. The business has won contracts in Bristol, Cambridge, Northampton and Peterborough, as well as in its home county of Kent.
Neil Ricketts, technical director at Trigion Security, informed Risk UK: “We’ve made substantial investments in our commercial department and supporting structure to drive targeted growth, and we’re absolutely delighted to see this surge in demand. Security guarding makes up a significant part of these new contracts, and we’re now expanding our workforce to meet the increased demand. We’re also able to complement this solution with our electronic options. We self-design, install, maintain and remotely operate all of our systems and focus on delivering the blended solution of electronic and people power.”
The company’s ‘Designed Solution’ pricing model has also been popular with many new clients. “By removing the need for CapEx for the system installation and spreading costs throughout the length of the contract,” urged Ricketts, “we’re able to meet clients’ needs without them having to use their budget upfront.”
Crimestoppers launch event at Leeds Castle
Trigion Security was on hand to share its security expertise and technology solutions at the launch of the Crimestoppers charity’s summer campaign during a conference held at Leeds Castle in July. The company had a wide array of equipment and devices on display, including facial recognition and thermal sensing equipment.
More than 50 delegates from the police service – headed by Kent’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott – as well as community safety organisations, tourism businesses and local authorities attended the Crimestoppers in Kent Conference. The launch was part of continued efforts to help make local communities safer by encouraging more people to speak up and report crime anonymously via Crimestoppers, and also highlight combined crime prevention efforts throughout the summer.
At the launch, Crimestoppers in Kent presented three initiatives: the Digital Most Wanted campaign, the Ambassadors Programme and Crimestoppers’ Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking campaign.
