GMS Security Services Ltd has secured a stream of security contracts with international building materials supplier CEMEX.
GMS initially won the tender in June 2018 to provide manned guarding for CEMEX's flagship cement plant in Rugby, Warwickshire. Now, it has also been awarded contracts across additional UK sites.
Before issuing a tender, CEMEX conducted "a mystery shopper-style tour" of several industrial estates within the area to review security suppliers.
CEMEX came across GMS at a Jaguar Land Rover site and was instantly impressed with the smartness and professionalism of the GMS officers.
GMS was then invited to tender among nine other leading security firms, "where their proposal stood out as it went above and beyond requirements", incorporating technology into the traditional manned guarding service.
Colin Jones, UK head of security at CEMEX stated that "the way the GMS management reward and engage with their frontline officers" impressed them. Jones added: "There is a genuine ethical approach to the business which makes them stand out from the competition."
