Securitas Awarded The Peel Group Security Contract

Securitas at MediaCityUK

Securitas has beaten off stiff competition in its bid for the contract to provide security services to The Peel Group. 160 officers will provide manned guarding, key-holding and concierge services across 17 of Peel’s UK sites, including MediaCityUK and the Group’s aviation and ports portfolio.

The Peel Group is one of the leading infrastructure, transport and real estate investors in the UK, with collective investments owned and under management of more than £5 billion. The company’s principal areas of investment encompass the transport, property, land, retail, leisure, energy and media sectors. Securitas was successful in the bid because of its commitment to ensuring true partnership between the businesses. Securitas and The Peel Group are both experts in their respective fields and specialise in many sectors including property management, retail, events, aviation and maritime.

The new deal incorporates Peel Land and Property’s extensive commercial, industrial and retail portfolio. It also covers the ports of Liverpool, Glasgow and Sheerness and Peel’s aviation interests at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield and Durham Tees Valley.

At MediaCityUK, which features key occupiers such as the BBC and ITV, more than 7,000 people now work, live and study in a sustainable environment with an abundance of open spaces. Peel and Securitas are working closely to ensure a strong community atmosphere is well maintained. Securitas is keen to develop the ‘green’ theme and officers are using an electric ‘Raptor’ and two mountain bikes to get around the site.

Shaun Kennedy, Chief Operating Officer at Securitas, said: “This is a hugely important business opportunity for us. This win means Securitas is now The Peel Group’s sole security provider, as we already provide services to its aviation and maritime sectors.”

David Glover, Director at The Peel Group, said: “Securitas beat off strong competition to win our security contract. We welcome them to our facilities team and look forward to driving standards ever higher, for the benefit of our occupiers, customers and employees.”
