Alan Cain, Head of Security and Business Continuity at Manchester Metropolitan University commented: “Oltec fm put considerable effort into researching our security requirements here at Manchester Metropolitan University, and this was clearly reflected in the quality of their tender submission. They have worked alongside the University’s in-house security team since 2015 in support of both campus security and special events. The new contract expands on this to include support for our in-house teams involved in library and residential security. Both the management and security officers of Oltec fm have shown a ‘can-do’ attitude to all that has been asked of them by the University, and I’m very much looking forward to working with them over the coming years.”
