Dardan Security has opened a new three storey head office, south of Cambridge. The company reports that it has enjoyed significant growth from a number of recent blue-chip client wins across the country, including Cambridge University, Peel Ports, Medway and the law firm, Mishcon de Reya.
Philip Anthony, Dardan’s managing director, pictured, said: “Continued growth and expansion, both geographically and in terms of the scope of the security services we offer, has seen the company become a major player on a national level. On the back of recent success and with clients located the length and breadth of the country, the requirement for a centrally located head office and control room has become increasingly evident.”
The move has created eight new jobs in Cambridge. The company’s new head office is at Grain House, Mill Court, Great Shelford, Cambridge; postcode CB22 5LD.
GSL Dardan Limited (trading as Dardan Security) was formed in 2009 through a merger between two East Anglian security contractors; Dardan Security founded in 1973 and Integral Security set up in 1979. Dardan has 500 staff, working from Aberdeen to London. It’s mentioned in the February 2019 print issue of Professional Security magazine as the hub for the Cross Sector Safety and Security Communications (CSSC) information-sharing and cascading partnership for the Eastern region.

Philip Anthony has worked within the private security sector for almost 25 years for such companies as Securicor, Reliance, G4S and OCS; and he was a managing director of the London-based guarding firm Knightsbridge.
