Regent Security

Security for second Midlands retail centre to Premier

Security services for Nuneaton's Ropewalk Shopping Centre have been newly-contracted to Leicester-based Premier, the second major retail centre win in the city for the company.

Opened in 2005, Ropewalk provides 205,000 sq ft of retail space for over 30 retail units across two levels in Nuneaton's town centre with multi-storey car parking comprising 525 spaces.

Under the new contract award, the Centre's existing staff of five contract security officers will transfer to Premier under the Acquired Rights Directive while additional support personnel are to be recruited to enhance contract performance.

As part of the mobilisation process, Premier is developing a training programme covering customer service, control and restraint, public space CCTV and physical skills training, specially aligned to the individual needs of shopping centre.

Newly-merged into the Regent Samsic Group, Premier is a fast-expanding provider in the Midlands, only last month (October) adding Nuneaton's 33 retail unit Abbeygate Shopping Centre to its portfolio.

Premier is also to raise levels of training to the existing and new Abbeygate security team whilst managing day to day security operations within the shopping centre.

Director Andrew Hallam commented: "We're delighted to have been awarded a second shopping centre contract in as many months.

"Ropewalk highlights our strengths in this challenging customer-facing sector and we are looking forward to working with centre manager John Kelleher and the retailers to optimising the safety and security of the environment for all its users".

£3.5m turnover Premier specialises in tailored security services for commercial and retail environments spanning guarding, patrols, keyholding and systems. Its consultancy and advisory service additionally devises security programmes tailored to individual client requirements, mixing ground-breaking technologies with traditional, established methodologies. Premier merged with the newly-launched security division of Regent Office Care Ltd in 2010.


Coventry-based Regent's entry to the security market draws both on the successful service model established within its cleaning business and from the security market expertise inherent within its parent company, Samsic. Security is just one of a range of services offered by the €1 billion turnover company, France's second largest cleaning contractor. Since its creation in 1986, Samsic has grown into an international force with more than 54,000 employees operating from nearly 230 locations across Europe on behalf of a client bases totalling over 20,000 organisations.
