Inside Kingdom - Happy New Year and the very busy year that was!

Firstly, thank you to all our 2010 customers and newsletter readers. Each year we have gained more readers and more customers and the loyalty of our customer base goes way back to 1993. A very BIG thank you to old and new for making 2010 a great success for Kingdom. The Kingdom Team wish you all a very Happy New Year and prosperous 2011

2010 was a difficult commercial climate for most if not all businesses, however Kingdom still managed to demonstrate strong financial stability and grow our business organically and through acquisition. Our marketplace changed dramatically in 2010 with many smaller security operators dropping out the marketplace and at the other end of the scale saw the bigger companies merging or selling.

2011 will no doubt be another year to test our industry and companies with the right profit margins, robust and innovative systems and the ability to offer added value will certainly be the ones who gain the most out of 2011.

The Kingdom 2011 New Years Resolution!
