|G4S has been selected to create a secure working environment in New York's International Gem Tower|
, a world leader in integrated security solutions, has been retained to design and deploy the security infrastructure for the International Gem Tower (IGT) currently under construction in New York's Diamond District. Looking to re-define how business is done in New York and the global diamond and jewellery marketplace, IGT developer, Extell Development Company, hired G4S to create a secure working environment that is unparalleled in the industry. "G4S is a recognised leader in the design, implementation and operation of professional security systems. In an industry like ours - where security is paramount - we are thrilled to benefit from the advantages this global group has to offer,"
says Raizy Haas, says Extell Senior Vice President. "To develop our systems, we are looking at what other trading centres in the world are doing as benchmarks that we intend to surpass."
Patrick de Cavaignac, President of Touchcom, a G4S Technology company, hails the installation at IGT will be unlike any other as it truly integrates the best in manpower and state-of-the-art technology from a single source. "By carefully assessing the comprehensive security and operational requirements of IGT, we are delivering solutions that fulfil specific needs."
The International Gem Tower's custom-designed security system will encompass a comprehensive range of services integrating G4S' premier security personnel with the latest advancements in security technology. The proprietary system, designed exclusively for the IGT, will complement the services and amenities the Tower offers to business owners and their customers. "In addition to the peace of mind a safe and secure environment provides, advanced security solutions designed by G4S for the Tower should bode well on insurance premiums,"
notes Joseph Lipton, IGT partner.
The jewellery trade, notes Keith Whitelock, CEO of G4S Technology, is one of many industries where the need to protect people, property and assets is a critical priority. "Our security solutions will enhance the experience for all who enter the International Gem Tower. Together, IGT and G4S are redefining how business - and security - are done in a project that will set the standard for trading centres in the future!"
