QCIC celebrates 15 years in business

Global security engineering firm, QCIC has completed more than 2000 projects in over 100 countries since its inception in 2007. In this time, the firm has built a reputation for supplying specialist security design and advisory services.

Though the company was born out of design services, the need for consistency across all phases of security development and maintenance led to the roll-out of their ‘Design, Build, Run’ methodology. This end-to-end support model enables QCIC to advise and manage all aspects of building security, from design and oversight at installation stage to operational security management and technology upgrades, the business explains.

The firm also continues to seek out new challenges, technology and locations. In 2019 the London-headquartered business established its first African hub in Cape Town, South Africa, adding to its portfolio of teams based in Hong Kong and New York.

“The trick is never to become complacent,” says founder Mark Rowan, who was named as one of the IFSEC Global Influencers in Security and Fire for 2021, and also joined IFSEC Global on a webinar on the future of physical access control in June 2022. “Our clients’ needs are always our first priority, which forces us to evolve as the world and their specific needs change. At QCIC that evolution will always go hand in hand with delivering service excellence.”

Further expansion is in the company’s plans in the foreseeable future, as well as growing into new sectors and achieving its Pledge to Net Zero. With a focus on sustainability, QCIC is also said to be one of the world’s first carbon neutral security engineering companies.

“I’m thankful to everyone who has been on this journey with us, especially our clients and staff,” says Rowan. “Our people are the most knowledgeable and experienced in the field, which makes it no surprise that we have reached this most gratifying milestone. I have no doubt that there are still many more years to come.”
