Metro Security’s wide ranging, innovative and high quality services have been hailed with a brace of wins in the newly announced AI 2018 Business Excellence Awards. Metro has picked up the gong for Best Security Systems Provider 2018 – UK, along with the Award for Excellence in Residential & Commercial Security Solutions – UK.

Since 2010, the Acquisition International (AI) annual awards have been organised by UK-based publisher AI Global Media, whose AI monthly magazine circulates to 108,000 readers in over 170 countries and regularly attracts editorial submissions from some of the biggest players on the global corporate landscape, including KPMG, EY, PwC and Deloitte.

AI Global Media describes its annual awards as “highlighting the amazing work done by those firms and individuals whose ceaseless dedication to innovation, customer care and the continued growth and improvement of their businesses has seen them forge ahead of their competitors and raise the bar for performance and results in their industry”.

Metro Security’s success in scooping two wins in the 2018 Business Excellence Awards follows earlier recognition in similar schemes including the Havering Business Awards (two wins in 2013 and 2015), the Retail Fraud Awards 2015 (Highly Commended) and Teach Secondary magazine’s 2015 Technology + Innovation Awards (Runner-up).

“We’re delighted to have done the double in the AI 2018 Business Excellence Awards, which reflect the dedication of the entire team at Metro Security (GB) PLC, as well as our sister company Adder Digital Technology,” declares Managing Director Trevor Wallace. “We’re also celebrating 40 years in business during 2018 and Metro has expanded from its origins as a security and fire equipment installer into areas including the education market, forecourt fuel and retail sectors, as well as telecare (nurse/warden call) systems.

“For instance, we’ll be demonstrating our exciting new M.A.R.S (Metro Analytic Retail System) at the RBTE show at Olympia in May, following our fifth consecutive appearance at the Bett education exhibition held in January. Our fresh success at the Business Excellence Awards demonstrates how Metro Security is working hard to supply innovative solutions for its customers’ needs. For example, M.A.R.S has already reduced a major High St retailer’s shrinkage by 70% across hundreds of its sites around the UK and some 20 other countries across Europe, while also significantly lowering its audit costs by 65%.”
