Kingdom praised for providing security at major event

clip_image001Kingdom is very pleased to have been praised by one of their leading clients, Bakkavor, for the service they provided to the company at a major event recently.

Bakkavor is a leading international manufacturer of fresh prepared food. Founded in 1986, they supply over 5,500 products to the world’s largest retailers.

They have manufacturing operations in the UK, Europe, Asia and North America, over 18,000 employees worldwide and are partners with the top global grocery retailers.

Bakkavor specialises in making and developing private label prepared foods for the top global grocery retailers and well-known international foodservice operators, and is committed to supplying outstanding quality, value and service to their customers.

Kingdom provides manned guarding to four of Bakkavor’s UK sites, including their regional office in Spalding, Lincolnshire. The team has provided security to Bakkavor for over ten years. They also provide event security every year for a major fundraising event that Bakkavor holds over a weekend at Springfields Events & Conference Centre in Spalding. Bakkavor’s Party in the Park sees company employees from around the UK attend on the Saturday, with the event opened up to the general public as well on the Sunday. Kingdom provided security throughout Saturday daytime and evening until 1am, and also for the public event on the Sunday.

Following the event, Kingdom’s Regional Director for Security in the Midlands & South West, Dean Lockie, was pleased to receive an email from the Logistics Manager at Bakkavor Logistics in Spalding, saying:

“Just wanted to drop a personal note to you to say thank you to you and the guys who worked at the fun weekend, they were a credit to your company ... once again thank you for the support.”

The General Logistics Manager at Bakkavor Logistics in Spalding said:

“I would just like to say a very big thank you from me for all your help and support over the weekend, it was an outstanding success and our best fun weekend to date. This is down to you as a team for all the hard work and commitment you have put in over the year and the weekend.

“We had over 3,000 staff and friends on the Saturday where a good time was had by all. For me just to see the face of the children on seeing the sight of the fun fair from the coaches from Bakkavor Meals London was worth all the hard work and commitment. The Party in the Park we had over 1,200 attending in the evening; the music and fireworks were fantastic.

“Sunday was a success with the car boot sale having over 60 exhibitors attracting quite a good crowd.

“Once again thank you very much for your help and support.”

Commenting on the event, Kingdom’s Dean Lockie, said:

“We are very proud to have provided security to Bakkavor for over ten years now and to have worked with them as they have gone from strength to strength. It is always a pleasure to provide security at this major event, and we were very pleased to receive praise for a job well done. It is great to be told that our team provided an excellent service to our client.”
