Resurgent Economy and Growing Terror Threat Underpins Corps Security Success

corps securityCorps Security has won tenders to provide guarding services at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and a number of other heavyweight organisations.

Six other security providers were beaten to the NHS contract as part of the London Procurement Partnership framework.

The provider of security services, which has offices in 14 UK towns and cities, has also smashed its annual sales target for the first six months of its financial year.

The company’s success reflects wider growth across the security market, with half of security firms reporting increasing sales and improving profits, according to market research firm Plimsoll. Amid a heightened terror threat and resurgent UK economy, many businesses in the increasingly professionalised security industry are delivering growth rates of up to 8%.

Corps Security, which has won contracts in a range of sectors including banking and local councils, also secured as clients a widely respected art institute and the Wellcome Trust’s London headquarters, where development of an Ebola vaccine is currently a priority.

The security services provider already supplies 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.

At the core of the business’s pitch is a cost-effective dovetailing of physical security with surveillance technology and remote monitoring.

“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,” says Corps Security’s business development manager, Nik Flytzanis.

“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.”
