Lockhart Security Services Limited are now fully operational and welcome enquiries from previous and prospective clients. All of our smartly uniformed security officers are fully insured and each hold a current SIA licence. The former Lockhart was a privately owned limited company formed in 1987 with a corporate HQ building situated in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. We were a reputable, professional and quality focused people based organisation who operated a guarding compliment of 800 plus highly trained and immaculately uniformed Security Officers.
Lockhart’s geographic zone of operations grew to extend from Scotland to East Anglia, across Northern England and the Midlands to the Welsh Border and westward over the sea to Northern Ireland. Lockhart’s strategically located operations centres and key area management staff in Tyne and Wear, Leicester, Lancashire, Glasgow and Belfast supervised local operations within these areas and naturally supplemented our carefully controlled expansion programme.
As manned guarding services, we were providers to Her Majesty’s Government Departments, the institutions, Public Health, Education, Industrial, Commercial, Retail and Maritime sectors, it was always our objective to deliver the highest standards of quality services without compromise. Over the years this proved to be the policy that stood us in good stead. Our prestigious “Blue Chip” client portfolio was both extensive and enviable and many of our customer companies were very well known household names. Indeed, many of our highly valued clients remained with us from our initial company formation and much of our work came from their recommendation. Over the years, the harmonious professional working partnerships we formed were solid, long lasting and beneficial to all parties.
Lockhart Security Services Ltd were Silver Medal Members of the newly formed Government initiated National Security Inspectorate, fully inspected members of IPSA, the International Professional Security Inspectorate of the Security Industry SITO, the Security Industry Training Organisation and proud recipients if the highly coveted and independently audited Security Watchdog Gold Award for six years in succession. The company was also licensed by the Secretary of State to operate security services in Northern Ireland. Further premier accolades included achieving runners up position in the nationwide security excellence awards 2002/2003 which was sponsored by BT Redcare and the Security Times magazine. Additionally Lockhart Security also won the Tyne Wear Business service of the year award in 2003. However, in 2004 the company’s shareholders decided to accept a very attractive offer of purchase from a national security company.
It is now with great excitement and enthusiastic teamwork, our overall professionalism and more importantly our commitment to proactive client care. At a time when sadly it is not unusual to hear of Security Companies whose managers cannot be contacted, assignments that cannot attract liaison visits and even worse security personnel who apathetic, untrained, unsupervised, ill equipped and demoralised to the point of not being bothered to do the job it is refreshing and reassuring to know that we are:
"THE COMPANY THAT CAN!"
