"Our SBD membership gives us a strong partnership to increase safety for our customers"

West Midlands-based GMS Security Services, part of the GMS Group, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative.

GMS Security Services is a privately owned national security specialist working with leading brands including Jaguar Land Rover, Aston Martin and CEMEX UK. Established as a manned guarding business in 1997, the company has been leading the market in innovation, service, and delivery ever since.

GMS offers complete peace of mind with their reliable key-holding and alarm response service. They aim to respond to all alarms within 60 minutes and use their unique GOSYS technology to take a report and photographic evidence of their call-out, which is emailed instantly to the customer. They also work in partnership with fellow SBD members SelectaDNA to provide forensic marking as an additional crime deterrent for properties.

Having recently moved its HQ to Oldbury, GMS Group employs 500 staff delivering security solutions for the likes of Neovia, Kerry Foods and AF Blakemore & Son. Following a successful period of growth with client wins including Dudley College, GMS has landed on the annual list of the top 45 businesses in the security sector put together by leading industry title Infologue.
