The Shield Guarding Company is targeting major growth this year now that majority shareholder Topsgrup has 100 per cent of the UK business’s shares.
The security solutions group has a three-year plan to rise from a £62 million turnover to around £100 million, says company chief executive John Roddy.
India-based Topsgrup picked up 51 per cent of Shield shares in 2008 and announced in May 2012 it would buy up all the shares.
This month, Shield plans to move into new corporate offices in London, where major growth potential exists in the financial and property management sectors, said Roddy. Shield will now focus on a total security management offering, especially in these sectors, he said.
An organisational restructuring will see more co-ordination of services to clients and include manned guarding, CCTV, reception and front-of-house services and alarm systems and installation.
The company maintains its own alarm receiving and response service in Preston.
