Royal warrant

by Mark Rowe

A Wolverhampton security company has been granted a Royal Warrant for services to the Queen in recognition of the quality of the goods and services it supplies.

Gunnebo UK Ltd has supplied safes and security services to Royal Households for decades and to Buckingham Palace for the last ten years.

“I am honoured and extremely proud that Gunnebo has been granted this Royal Warrant, it is hugely gratifying to be recognised for the quality of the services we provide,” said Gunnebo Managing Director Paul Hutchinson.

“This prestigious award marks a significant moment in the development of Gunnebo, which takes great pride in being recognised alongside other Blue Chip warrant holders such as Jaguar and Aston Martin,” he added.

Gunnebo joins around 680 individuals and companies which have been granted the Royal Warrant by the Queen, for the goods and services they offer the Royal Households. Traditionally Royal Warrants are only granted to individuals or companies that provide goods or services to the Royal Household. The warrants are a mark of recognition of high quality. Strict regulations govern the warrant, which allows the grantee or company to use the term ‘By Appointment’ and display the Royal coat of arms.

Anthony Wortley, Service Manager for Secure Storage has been guiding the Company through the application process. Tony said: “It was quite a testing process which has taken place over the past two years, during which we had to demonstrate our provision of goods and services for at least five years, as well as our commitment to environmental standards.

“We are the market leaders in the specialist area of Secure Solutions, it is an area of our business which has trebled in size during the past six years and this comes as a great reward for the hard work of our dedicated team of engineers.”

Some 60 of the firm’s engineers are responsible for servicing safes, vaults and automatic cash dispensers across the country. The new Royal Warrant will now be displayed on their vehicles and at the company’s Wolverhampton head offices.

The company is applying to become a member of the Association of Warrant Holders. Gunnebo will then be eligible to attend a four day festival being held in the gardens of Buckingham Palace in July. The Coronation Fair will feature warrant holders in trade and industry ranging from traditional craft people to global multi-nationals.


Gunnebo UK Ltd is based at Fairfax House, Pendeford Business Park, Wolverhampton. Gunnebo UK Ltd is part of a security company working in 32 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, America and Australia. For more information log on to:
