Ward Security has been selected by leading facilities, energy and project management provider Norland as a preferred supplier of security services after successfully completing the company’s rigorous assessment process.
Ward Security will tender for security services provided as part of Norland’s facilities management operations across the UK for a wide range of clients including blue chip firms, public authorities and higher education establishments.
Norland awarded Ward Security preferred supplier status following the company’s outstanding performance in all areas of Norland’s selection process for security service suppliers. The process included close scrutiny of Ward Security’s commercial track record, safety audits and compliance reports. Ward Security also attended a number of supplier workshops and site visits as part of the approval process.
Contracts between the two companies have been exchanged giving Ward Security the immediate go-ahead to tender for business with Norland, which was recently ranked by The Sunday Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Britain. The multi-service provider was placed 53rd in the paper’s Grant Thornton Top Track 250, a league that has ranked Britain’s leading mid-market companies for the last nine years.
Kevin Ward, Executive Director at Ward Security, commented: “We are extremely proud to have come through Norland’s approval process with the highest possible scores for all the areas in which we were assessed. Throughout the process we have sought to demonstrate our dedication to providing clients with expert protection services around the clock with the utmost care and commitment. We look forward to working closely with Norland as a company that shares our passion for delivering services to the highest professional standards.”
Anna Williams, Procurement Manager at Norland, said: “Ward Security has excelled in each and every area that we closely examine to ensure that our preferred suppliers meet our exceptionally high performance requirements. The team at Ward Security has shown enthusiasm, expertise and integrity every step of the way. We are delighted to be forming this partnership.”
