Business support solutions provider, The Mount Charles Group and security systems provider, RMS Group Services have launched a joint security company, RMS Security Services in a move to diversify their offering.
Headquartered in Belfast, the company provides man guarding, key holding, response and patrol, high value property escorts, close protection and CCTV monitoring services and has already secured a number of important contracts, including Titanic Belfast and global outsourcing company Teleperformance.
Speaking at the launch event at Titanic Belfast, chairman of the Mount Charles Group, Trevor Annon said:
“I am delighted to announce this joint venture, for which we have ambitions to become the number one security services firm in Ireland.
“The project came about in response to a rapidly increasing demand from our clients for multi or ‘bundled’ service contracts. We already deliver catering, cleaning, retail and vending contracts to a vast range of public and private sector clients across Ireland. The one thing we couldn’t supply, until now, was security services, hence the new venture.
“It was an easy decision to partner with RMS Group – as another locally owned company, they have a similar ethos of excellence and integrity, and crucially, they have significant expertise in the security field. Combining our expertise in this way will undoubtedly enable us to better compete in a very competitive market and will support the ongoing growth and expansion of both businesses.”
Both companies have jointly invested over £250,000 to create the new company, which to date has created 35 new jobs.
