Inside Kingdom - Over one hundred security jobs saved by Kingdom and new Yorkshire office opened!

Over one hundred jobs at Group Response Global (GRG) Ltd based in Selby, North Yorkshire have been saved after the security services business was bought out of administration by Kingdom Security Ltd.

GRG, a provider of security services is a nationwide provider of professional security services including fully licensed security guards, event teams, CCTV & security equipment, mobile patrols and key holding.

After being formed in 1997 GRG expanded into one of the largest independent security companies in Yorkshire.

The sale of GRG from administration was secured by Beever and Struthers.

Charles MacMillan (Beever and Struthers) said: “While the demise of any business and the consequent loss of jobs is obviously disappointing I was pleased to secure the transfer of the vast majority of jobs at GRG to Kingdom Security. This was a seamless transaction achieved through close and effective teamwork between myself, Kingdom and clients of GRG.”

Terry Barton BA (Hons) Law, Managing Director of Kingdom Security, said: “We are delighted to provide continued employment and job safety to the dedicated work force of GRG and to continue our national expansion with the acquisition of GRG customers in Yorkshire. My team welcome our new customers and staff who will gain significant benefit from our extensive services, resources, innovation and management expertise. A new Yorkshire UK Support Centre has been opened (see image) at 1200, Century Way, Thorpe Business Park, Colton. LS15 8ZA to support this new infrastructure.
