VSG joined the Compass Group UK & Ireland part of the Compass Group plc, one of the worlds largest support services organisations with global operations in 55 countries and employing over 386,000 people. Compass is a FTSE top 40 company with annual revenues of over £13.4 billion in the year to 30 September 2009. The company operates across the core sectors of Business & Industry, Defence, Offshore & Remote Sites, Healthcare, Education, Sports & Leisure and Vending and delivers these services to blue chip organisations.
However, the company was established in March 2000, by its current senior management team, and set out to raise standards within the manned security industry, for both customers and colleagues. Through a commitment to this founding principle VSG has become the fastest growing company in its sector and has in excess of £150m turnover and currently sits in 4th position in the industry.
VSG operates from Head Offices in Northampton, which have been designed and built to provide market leading facilities for the training, control and support of over 6,000 plus field based Security Personnel. Additional operating centres have been opened in Belfast, Dublin and London to further support the company's growth.
The development of the business is also being driven by diversification of the service offering, as VSG seeks to provide customers with holistic solutions that enhance the utilisation of technology to optimise security and provide real value. VSG Systems provides an end to end service for customers, from design and installation, through to ongoing maintenance of leading edge systems, which, in turn can be monitored via the company’s own state of the art ARC and Remote Monitoring Centre.
The foundation on which the company's success is built remains as strong today as ever and as VSG's reputation and blue chip client base continues to grow, so too does the ambition reflected in the Company's Mission Statement. 'To be recognised as the best in all we do to the benefit of our customers, our staff and our business.'
