High five for Integrity

by Mark Rowe

A West Midlands security company has reached its fifth anniversary having created up to 60 jobs and achieving 100 per cent year-on-year growth. Pictured left to right: Tony Turner and Will Adams of Integrity Security Group.

Integrity Security Group, based in Highlands Road in Solihull, has secured a string of new contracts with manufacturing firms, distribution units and regeneration projects across the UK besides a number of city centre office developments.

The firm has expanded to more than 120 staff and taken on more offices to meet demand.

Tony Turner, Managing Director, said: “It’s been a great year for the business and one that we believe could be the platform to launch us to our next stage of development. We’ve added over £1m to turnover this year and are currently in the closing stages for other significant contracts.”

He added: “When talking to clients they’ve been telling us that some of our recent ‘wins’ have been down to ‘taking the pain away’, being cost competitive and employing security specialists who are professional, courteous and become part of their business.”

Integrity Security Group was established in 2008 after Tony and fellow director Will Adams spotted a niche in the market, to change what they describe as the industry perception of poor personal service and customers being let down.

The company, which holds Security Industry Authority Approved Contractor status, Safe Contractor Accreditation, and ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, is a member of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA). The firm points to training for its staff and new processes and the latest technology. In the last year alone, the firm has spent £100,000 on extra vehicles, a new operations centre, new website and increasing its head office to 3000 sq ft. The latter was supported by a grant from the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership’s Business Development Programme (BDP).

Will Adams said: “We don’t want our growth to stop here and are already looking at how we can double the size of turnover again by this time next year. This has the potential to create another 70 jobs and take us to between 190 and 200 positions.“

He added: “Where possible we try to recruit a certain percentage of unemployed people and over 30 have been taken on so far. They’re a great resource and we can offer them training to develop them in our way of doing business.”

Besides security and manned guarding, the company also offers nationwide cleaning and facilities management services.
