SRX Security is now Westacre Security.
SRX was established in February 2011 and over the following eight years earned a reputation as the ‘go-to’ security provider for high-net-worth families, their property and business interests. As well as the Head Office in the UK, the company established bases in the South of France and in the United Arab Emirates in order to facilitate an increasing range of projects all over the world. A growing portfolio of clients ensured the company was kept busy and challenged, but still managing to retain a keen interest in supporting the UK Armed Forces Community and associated charities. In the summer of 2018, SRX was recognised by the Ministry of Defence for their support of Veterans and Reservists, receiving a Silver Award as part of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
In late 2018, with differing aspirations by the current Directors, it was agreed to break-up SRX. The clients, personnel, experience, qualifications, knowledge and ethos came over to the newly formed company which was shortly to become Westacre Security.
Whilst the old SRX will continues to trade, Westacre has embarked upon an exciting new journey where we endeavour to become the best boutique private security company in the world. One of the major changes will see new departments established in Cyber Security, Training, Investigations and Technical Security (Alarm, Access Control, CCTV). With specialist departments to implement our core security capabilities, Westacre are able to provide both single capabilities or bespoke full security solutions packages. By using our own in-house departments, we are able to ensure an exceptional level of service, project managed by experienced Team Leaders with maximum discretion and professionalism.
The eight years of operational history has not been erased, it comes forward with the people who have moved to Westacre Security. So whilst we are, on paper, a new company we are operationally very experienced.
As the global security threat climate continues to change we are seeing more and more people jump on the security ‘bandwagon’ with the market becoming saturated with second-rate companies run by inexperienced and unqualified managers with very little experience in actually doing security on the ground. This means that, more than ever, it is imperative to choose a security provider who have the right credentials - that’s why we believe Westacre Security will set the benchmark for boutique private security companies.
Westacre will also continue to support the Armed Forces community by having a high employment percentage of military Veterans and Reservists - we are currently operating on 100% for permanently employed staff and 75% for contractors. We are helping several service leavers in their transition from military to civilian life by providing business start-up assistance and mentoring as well as supporting military charities as often as we can.
Finally, we would like to make the statement that ‘SRX Security or SRX North East Ltd have no affiliation to Westacre Security whatsoever, nor are we able to verify or endorse any of their capabilities’.
