The Kingdom Team

Bolton based company Coppermount Security has been acquired by Kingdom Security Ltd

The acquisition includes approximately 2,000 guarding hours per week across a variety of sectors (Education, Student Accommodation, Galleries, Libraries & Property Management) and a turnover in excess of £1 million.

Key members of the Coppermount management support team and security staff have joined Kingdom and the current customer portfolio has been integrated

The acquisition is in line with the Kingdom strategy to compliment excellent organic growth with selective local and national acquisitions

Terry Barton BA (Hons) Law - Managing Director said "We had been talking to Coppermount for quite a while as we take great care and time to find companies and people that match the Kingdom ethos. The Coppermount acquisition is another excellent "fit" for Kingdom and further strengthens our local and national ability to service customers. My team welcome our new customers and staff who will gain significant benefit from our extensive services, resources, innovation and management expertise

 

Kingdom breaks into the TOP 20

In December 2010 Kingdom Security officially became a TOP 20 industry player (based on turnover and as compiled by www.infologue.com)

Mark Wallace (Senior Operating Executive) said "To be acknowledged in recent years for quality via industry accreditations such as the ACS and Pacesetters has been fantastic but to become a TOP 20 security company in such a short period of time is testament to the fantastic team spirit we have at Kingdom and the hard work we put in to be the very best at what we do. 2010 has been a great year for us in many ways but we believe we have placed ourselves in a very strong market position for 2011 to be even better and stronger"
