The Anchor Security Services business of Anchor Group Services announces that after its most recent bi-annual audit it has retained its Guarding Gold approval from the National Security Inspectorate (NSI). The company says that this makes it the only security supplier with offices based in North Wales to be certificated to gold.
Anchor offers security, cleaning, mobile patrols, parking management and reactive and planned property maintenance. Its Guarding Gold approval covers the provision of Mobile Patrol Services, Static Site Guarding Services, Keyholding and Alarm Response services, CCTV monitoring services, Security screening and trained personnel to conduct CCTV monitoring services. The company is based in Ewloe, north Wales, which enables the company to have forged links with Chester and the North West of England, and have support operations in place across the UK.
As part of its certification, Anchor will be listed in the NSI Directory, which details all the companies which have successfully achieved NSI certification. NSI operates a two-tier awards system, which allows companies the flexibility to grow and develop their businesses, whilst committing to the assurance of NSI assessment and certification.
Andrew Harper, Anchor’s chief executive, says: “Anchor prides itself on giving its customers value for money and a top quality service. We know that NSI is more than thorough in its auditing and its codes of practice are both relevant and rigorous. The fact that we can say that we are the only Guarding Gold security company with offices based in North Wales, provides us with significant competitive edge against other security providers.”
Anchor Group Services was established by Andrew Harper, chief executive, almost 30 years ago. Initially set up as a security company, Anchor Group Services can now offer its clients what it terms an one-stop-shop for ‘soft-service’ delivery.
