Transguard secures fmME 2018 Award
G4S UAE awarded highly commended honours for its overall depth and involvement in regional security operation
Transguard Security Services (TSS) swatted away competition to win the Security Company of the Year award.
TSS has one of the largest workforces in the country employing more than 8,000 security personnel, up from 7,000 in 2016-2017.
The firms offerings includes: manned guarding, events security, certified explosive detection canine (K9), systems integration.
The firm has also been chosen to provide security services for the Expo 2020, where it will provide manned guarding and systems integration consultancy services.
A total of 7,000 guards will be deployed for this project.
Transguard Group, chief security officer, Tim Mundell said: The first thing to say is that it is fantastic to win this award on the back of last year, so I think there’s been a lot consistency there, which is great. That’s what we try to do – show consistency, prove what we do, being innovative and really trying to support the UAE and the security of everyone who works and lives within it.”
The judges also took note of Transguard’s new technological implementation called ‘SmartGuard’. The new system, which is aimed at improving operational efficiency, allows clients to have real-time information, images and video to support not only their security layer but more importantly, to immediately address any operational issues faced by the facility operations team daily.
Mundell added: “We’re looking at our processes internally and externally with our customers this year and hopefully this time next year we will be doing the same thing right now [and collect another award].”
The award was presented by Mohammed Abdulaziz, director of HSSE at Bee’ah at the Waldorf Astoria in Dubai on May 8, 2018.
MJB Group was the Platinum Sponsors of the Event, along with Farnek and Mace Macro as the Gold Sponsors.
QBG FM, OSCO, Cofely Besix FM and CoreServ were the Silver Sponsors of the fmME Awards 2018.
