Corps Security celebrates major new account wins

Corps Security, the leading provider of specialist security services, 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 its financial year.

With confidence sweeping back into the UK security industry, Corps Security’s success mirrors the findings of a study earlier this year from market analyst, Plimsoll, which found that half of the firms questioned are increasing sales and improving profits, with a significant proportion of them delivering growth rates of up to eight per cent. With a rising awareness of the vital role security plays in keeping people, property and assets safe from a diverse array of threats, this is a trend that is set to continue.

Corps Security’s most recent contract wins come from organisations in a range of diverse sectors including banking and local council sectors, as well as a world famous art institute. The company’s highly trained 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 in human and animal health. The important work it carries out currently includes enabling an international consortium to accelerate development of an Ebola vaccine.

Also in the healthcare sector, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust is benefitting 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 with six other security providers, all of which are part of the London Procurement Partnership framework.

As well as 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 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.

As with all of its contract wins, Corps Security is able to demonstrate its ability to provide the highest levels of service and value for money. Customer feedback suggests that this is thanks to its unique corporate structure and ability to develop a fully integrated solution that reduces spend and enhances protection by cost effectively 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. He commented, ‘Security is quite unlike any other service and, due to our clear focus and dedication to this field, we are able to provide a comprehensive solution that always meets our customers’ unique needs. I’m delighted that we are now able to offer our expertise to prestigious organisations such as the Wellcome Trust and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, who I’m confident will benefit enormously from our uniquely ethical and innovative approach to service delivery’.
