IPC confident of growth in UK security market

IPC Security : 09 November, 2009  (Company News)
Overseeing expansion in its UK operations, IPC International management has expressed confidence in sector growth in the region
IPC confident of growth in UK security market
During his first visit to the North East of England, Russ Collett, Chief Operating Officer with the Chicago-based international security company, IPC International says: "This is an exciting time for our firm. The future is bright as we expand our UK operations: We are confident despite the recession - we are recruiting in the UK."

"Mark Partridge, CEO of IPC Security (UK) is doing a great job leading our efforts and launching our brand in the UK. We are regionalising, and modernising our service offerings to ensure we deliver the highest quality service to our UK clients", said Russ Collett.

Speaking to the media along with Robert Nutt, Group Financial Officer from IPC International Corporation's head office and Mark Partridge, CEO at IPC Security (UK), Russ, added: "We have never felt better about our investment in the UK security sector. Our investment in new staff, systems and services continues to underpin our growth and we have opened new branches in Scotland (East Kilbride) and South of the UK (Surrey). We anticipate continued, solid growth and employment opportunities across the UK. Current indicators suggest we will recruit some 500 people in the next 18 months".

The integration of the IPC International ethos and service approach into the UK organization brings, not only change of name, but an energized culture based on practical knowledge and experience and supported through increased knowledge management across the global organization into the UK.

IPC International Corporation is a large global player in the security sector, based in the USA, with over 30 years experience, managing security and safety in over 500 shopping centres world wide.

The strengthened relationship between the IPC Security and its American parent provides a platform for continued expansion from IPC Security's position as a major employer in the North East of the UK. Investments in terms of systems, recruitment, customer services and training facilities, combined with the injection of IPC International service ethos will continue to benefit existing as well as new customers.

IPC Security (UK) will continue to add to its already impressive portfolio of shopping centre, retail, transport, aviation, and public sector clients across the country.

Mark Partridge, CEO, IPC Security (UK), said: "We are delighted to welcome Russ and Robert to IPC Security (UK)'s office here in Newcastle. It shows the head office's commitment to the UK and is a vote of confidence in the future. I want to thank Russ and Robert for their time and support they have given me and all the UK staff. It is greatly appreciated. "

Mark added: "Russ is an interesting guy with a fascinating CV and security experience which is second-to-none. Prior to being appointed COO at IPC he was on Presidents Clinton and George W Bush Secret Service security details. He was also involved in overseeing Senator Obama's security detail in Chicago during the US Presidential Election 2008."
