Cerberus Facilities Management Takeover
Cerberus Facilities Management approached Foremost Security back in July 2019, explaining that they wanted to leave the industry, and after a couple of meetings in which discussions about which sites we would take over took place, negotiations were made. It’s with great satisfaction for us to announce we have secured 80% of Cerberus’ clients.
This takeover will see the market share develop across Nottingham, with a mixture of our services, including: Manned Guarding, Mobile Patrols, Lock/Unlock, Keyholding and Alarm Response. However, an immediate difference we have seen lies with the Manned Guarding which has increased to a consistent 4000 hours provided each week, which is an approximate 400hr increase. This has allowed us to develop our Mobile Patrol fleet to 8 vans which will benefit the response time to clients – which is already at an impressive 22 minutes!
Since the takeover in July, we has seen significant growth in our client base and have secured work with Jeld Wen – Melton Mowbray, Cold Harbour Marine, Enva Waste Management, Lowdham Leisure World, Bunches, J McCann, Plastique, Sat Bains and Pro-log Fulfilment, just to name a few.
Ben Spencer, who was the Director of Operations at Cerberus Facilities Management has said: “As a security solutions provider with over 20 years’ experience, we’re absolutely delighted to trust and hand over to Foremost. We know they’re always thinking of their clients’ futures and those who were previously with us, will be in very safe hands.”
