GMS is now approaching the top 30 companies operating in the regulated security sector and is proud to protect the assets of leading global brands such as Jaguar Land Rover, CEMEX, Kerry Foods, AF Blakemore & Son, VAX and Neovia.

Commenting on their SBD membership, Ben Neate, Operations Director at GMS Group said: “We are proud to continue our association with Secured by Design because the standard recognises the robust processes we have in place to keep our customer’s keys secure. It is unique for the SBD standard to be applied to a process, rather than a physical item so it gives our customers reassurance that their keys will be safe when they are handed over to GMS.”

SBD Development Officer Ruari Robertson said: “I am delighted that GMS have decided to renew their membership. As the only approved provider of a key-holding service within Secured by Design it is good to know that they are keen to continue that relationship for another year”.
