OCS has held a contract with the leisure company for nearly 7 years, providing security services to the city’s celebrity waxwork tourist attraction, Madame Tussauds. However, Merlin Entertainments recently tendered a security contract to cover three of its other attractions including the EDF Energy London Eye, the London Dungeons and the SEA LIFE London Aquarium. After a rigorous selection process, OCS secured the three year contract to provide manned guarding services to all four sites.
At the EDF Energy London Eye, the OCS team provides out of hours security and daily manned guarding alongside queue control and bag searches. Additional ad hoc services for special events are also provided at the neighbouring SEA LIFE London Aquarium and the London Dungeon.
Eric Dench, Security Business Manager at EDF Energy London Eye commented: “We wanted a supplier that we could rely on to provide the highest quality security services for our world-famous tourist attractions. After working closely with OCS for a number of years, we were delighted to appoint them to work at our other sites and look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come.”
Martin Gammon, Managing Director of OCS Group UK added: “This contract award further underpins our growing reputation as one of the leading suppliers of outsourced services to the Leisure and Entertainments industry. We are delighted to extend our relationship with Merlin.”
