|VSG expands its facilities at headquarters in Northampton|
Implemented in response to the rapidly increasing demand for the company's services in both the manned guarding and electronic security sectors, the extension provides VSG with an additional 7,500 sq ft of floor space in Northampton, making a total of 22,500 sq ft.
"As a company, we have an absolute commitment to providing the best in training for our staff," said VSG's Financial Director, Rob Jones, "and our success in meeting this commitment was clearly demonstrated when we won the top award at the 2008 Skills for Security Awards. That's why we've put a lot of thought, care and investment into the facilities at our new Training Academy, and we honestly believe that, as a result, they are the best in the industry."
VSG's Training Academy will be used to deliver courses for the company's own staff covering not only standard security skills, but also topics such as health and safety, first aid and conflict resolution. In addition, facilities within the Academy are available for hire by external organisations that wish to use them to present their own training sessions.
VSG's extended premises include a fully equipped showroom where customers can see live demonstrations of the latest electronic security products. A new manned guarding control room has also been created, allowing the manned guarding controllers to relocate out of the existing remote monitoring centre (RMC), thus giving the RMC further capacity for growth. Also provided is a suite of prestigious meeting rooms that, like the Training Academy, are available for external organisations to hire, and a new staff canteen.
"As a company, we have an absolute commitment to providing the best in training for our staff," said VSG's Financial Director, Rob Jones
"The new premises are bright and airy, providing a superb environment for our staff to work in," said Rob, "but there are also benefits for our customers. For example, the Training Academy will help us to maintain and even enhance our performance in every area, while the new control room will ensure that we can respond effectively to the ever-changing needs of our rapidly expanding client base."
"And, of course, the availability of our facilities to our customers means that they have access to superb resources," he continued. "We are delighted with our new premises in Northampton, and we truly believe that they represent the best that our industry has to offer."
