Fire and security technology specialist Kings Secure Technologies (KST) has won a new five-year contract with Post Office Ltd.
The contract, which began in August, contains an option to extend for another three years.
The Post Office has an estate of more than 11,500 post office branches, 15 cash centre depots, and three main administration centres.
KST has worked with Post Office Ltd since 2011. The two organisations have built a “trusted partnership’ over the years and the firm said it has consistently reviewed its ‘first-class service, identifying opportunities to reduce cost and improve efficiencies in areas where the benefit could be reinvested in significant savings for the client”.
KST added that working with the Post Office’s weighing solutions supplier DIGI Group and engineering partner Insafe, the aim is to maintain and service the estate efficiently while delivering agreed service level agreements in a “continuous improvement-based environment”.
Bob Forsyth, CEO of KST, said: “The team at KST prides itself on having provided exceptional and reliable security services to Post Office for over 10 years, keeping their assets, customers and clients secure through vigilance and proactive engagement with our business support system partners DIGI Group and Insafe.”
Steve Norris, the Post Office’s director of property, security and facilities, added: “The safety and security of the public and our colleagues is top priority for Post Office Ltd. Under the new contract, KST, DIGI Group and Insafe will be responsible for the provision of property security, grapevine and business support services for our extensive portfolio. During the tendering process, we were impressed by the quality and competitive value offered by KST, and also by their understanding of our business and requirements.”
