The security engineering firm QCIC is celebrating 15 years in business. It has completed more than 2000 projects in over 100 countries since it began in 2007.
QCIC has built a global reputation for supplying specialist security design and advisory services. Though the company was born out of design services, the need for consistency across all phases of security development and maintenance led to the roll-out of their ‘Design, Build, Run’ methodology. This end-to-end support model enables the firm to advise and manage all aspects of building security, from design and oversight at installation stage to operational security management and technology upgrades.
In 2019 the London-based business set up its first African hub in Cape Town, South Africa, adding to its teams based in Hong Kong and New York. Since then, that newest hub has grown exponentially and, with their global presence, QCIC is able to provide full time zone coverage through a 365/24/7 “always on” support network to their clients.
Founder Mark Rowan, pictured, who was named as one of the IFSEC Global Influencers in Security and Fire for 2021 says that the trick is never to become complacent. “Our clients’ needs are always our first priority, which forces us to evolve as the world and their specific needs change. At QCIC that evolution will always go hand in hand with delivering service excellence.”
Further expansion is in the company’s plans in the foreseeable future, as well as growing into new sectors and achieving their Pledge to Net Zero, for sustainability. QCIC was one of the world’s first carbon neutral security engineering companies.
“I’m thankful to everyone who has been on this journey with us, especially our clients and staff,” says Rowan. “Our people are the most knowledgeable and experienced in the field, which makes it no surprise that we have reached this most gratifying milestone. I have no doubt that there are still many more years to come.”
