Amberstone Security becomes partner for major supermarket across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Northern England

October 1, 2021

Amberstone Security, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of intelligence-led guarding services, security technology solutions and loss prevention services has announced a security services contract with supermarket giant, Tesco. 

Amberstone Security will provide security solutions for over 330 Tesco stores across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Northern England to help keep customers and staff safe while they shop and work. 

The Essex-based security company impressed during a rigorous 10 month-long tender process, competing against several other UK leading security companies. Amberstone’s data-driven approach to saving their clients’ money whilst simultaneously reducing risk will enable a supply of over 700 security officers through guarding solutions, which include static and roaming security officers and risk solutions to Tesco stores. 

Jim McFedries, Group Operations Director at Amberstone Security has been heavily involved in initiating the contract, since it was awarded in mid-August 2021, and says: “We are delighted to be working with Tesco to supply security for their stores across the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.  

“Our immediate priority was to implement a comprehensive risk analysis for each store in order to keep safe our Tesco colleagues, the premises, assets, and the people who shop there.  

“It’s a huge contract, and we are thrilled to welcome our new employees to the Amberstone family. Our team really make the difference – ensuring we have the right people, in the right places, at the right time 

A recent study indicated that the global guarding services market is expected to grow and be worth $220 billion by 2024. This encouraging news, coupled with Amberstone Security’s latest security contract, has the potential to offer vast employment opportunities to UK security personnel with an SIA Licence in the future.
