Intergrated Security Manufacturing (ISM), a pioneer in the design, development and manufacture of PSIM and ISMS technology, joins Nukleas, a new Integrated Security Solutions consortium. The consortium, which is supported by the UK Government’s Department for International Trade, has been developed to offer the discerning overseas customer a coordinated and integrated command and control solution for multiple security and safety requirements. Innovative businesses The companies that form part of the consortium complement one another, are trusted manufacturers in their respective fields, and combined have more than 140 years’ experience in delivering international projects. We believe that being a smaller business can be a distinct advantage in that we can be more competitive" Steve Smith, Managing Director of ISM, believes that a consortium of smaller, innovative businesses can bring major benefits to international clients: “We believe that being a smaller business can be a distinct advantage in that we can be more competitive, are more focused on the client as opposed to needing to support a huge overhead, and more agile in our ability to innovate a bespoke solution.” Professional organisations “By joining a consortium of similar, like-minded professional organisations with proven capabilities, we are able to offer international firms something fresh and exciting that has not been available before.” The Nukleas Integrated Security Solutions consortium is formed of UK security companies, each with a successful track record of enhancing UK national security and delivering effective and efficient solutions to the UK Emergency Services and critical national infrastructure. ISM’s Genesys integrated security management system (ISMS) technology goes beyond PSIM to offer unparalleled scale, redundancy and ease of use for operators of National Critical Infrastructure sites. ISM recently received formal notification from the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) that Genesys has met the CPNI standard for CAPSS.
