Keyworkers Foremost Security, in high demand to protect premises across the midlands during lockdown

East Midlands based business Foremost Security started 2020 with a real flourish after a successful 2019 – and with a global pandemic on their hands, this flourish has become even greater.

Many businesses are currently facing a challenging time due to the Covid-19 pandemic, one which has seen people constrained to their home for much of the time. With many company owners already feeling vulnerable, Foremost Security have fortunately been appointed as a key worker and have therefore been able to continue to provide their security services. It is thanks to their SIA accreditation, which has allowed them to play this crucial role at this time.

Whilst businesses try to cope with what is fast becoming ‘the new normal’, Foremost Security customers know that they can still rely on the uninterrupted continuity of their protection, which is one less thing for them to worry about amongst the long list of uncertainties that are currently dealing with.

The company has had many achievements to date, but this is a prime example of where a business has chosen to thrive amongst the uncertainty, turning a negative situation into a positive experience. The comprehensive security service offering - which uniquely involves no sub-contracting – have seen their services soar in recent weeks.

Since the lockdown they have:

  • Provided 2100 extra Mobile Patrols
  • Taken on an additional 25 Key Holding and Alarm response sites 
  • Created new jobs in the Midlands 
  • Seen an increase of 500 hours for weekly Manned Guarding 
  • They also anticipate that within the next 3 weeks they will have completed 4000 extra patrols

With in-house capabilities including Pro-log Fulfilment, Manned Guarding, Mobile Patrols, Key Holding, Alarm Response and Lock and Unlock services, there’s little doubt that Foremost Security have the kind of expertise which East Midlands businesses can rely upon – and do. Their diverse and growing client list includes British Geological Survery, Cold Harbour Marine, Enva Waste Management, Nottingham College, Bunches, and J McCann, to name just a few.

With over 120 employees, Foremost Security are large enough to deliver what they promise but are small enough to treat each of their clients as individuals, with tailored solutions – something of which they are immensely proud of. The team are consistently talking to all of their employees about COVID-19 and have policies in place to ensure they adhere to Government advice at all times to reduce any spread of the virus.

Sales & Marketing Director at Foremost Security, Matt Prince, has said:

 “I am so incredibly proud of what we have achieved in the last few weeks, and how our team has risen to the challenge. It’s been a challenging time for all, but in these sorts of situations you can either survive or thrive, and we will always do our utmost to ensure the safety of our clients and their premise.

"The whole team have worked incredibly hard and have shown their absolute commitment in getting us through this challenge, which will only strengthen our position as the biggest and best security company in the region.”
