OCS Group flying high thanks to significant security contract win with PPG Aerospace

OCS Group has been awarded a three-year contract by PPG Aerospace. The contract sees the FM solutions specialist providing security in addition to cleaning and catering services at PPG Aerospace’s Shildon site in County Durham.

This is the latest contract OCS has won with PPG across its UK portfolio, with programmes of delivery also in place for Birstall and Morley in Leeds, Trigate in Birmingham, Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland and Wigan, which mobilised earlier this year.

The range of services OCS provides for these sites includes security, office cleaning, window cleaning, specialist cleaning, vending and pest control.

Emma Cobbold of PPG commented: “We aim to provide the highest possible standards for members of staff at our sites and we’re very pleased to be working with OCS to help us deliver on that desire.”

Bob Taylor, CEO for OCS UK, commented: “We’re delighted to secure another contract with PPG and expand our service provision across this client’s aerospace business. OCS shares PPG’s aim of delivering high quality, good value products and services to its clients and we’ll continue to drive this ambition in the new contract.”

PPG Aerospace is a transparencies aviation leader offering innovative products and services to the commercial, military, civil and general aviation industries alike.

Trigion builds on security success

Trigion Security Services has begun work on a security guarding contract with Laing O’Rourke on a large construction site in Oxford through the customer’s Select Plant Hire section. The contract is initially in support of the in-house team.

Neil Barham, Trigion’s operations director for security guarding, explained to Risk UK: “Laing O’Rourke chose us for this project due to our knowledge and expertise in the construction sector. The client has witnessed our operations at high profile sites in London and wants to adopt those parameters at its Oxford location.”

Alex Moore, Trigion’s contracts manager for construction, is Site Manager Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) qualified, in turn demonstrating the company’s expertise in the sector. This is something which is very much appreciated by construction project managers.
