VIP Security Services Celebrates 30 Years In Business %count

We’re officially 30! This year marks our 30th anniversary and we’re spending the whole of 2019 celebrating with a wide range of activities. Our official ‘birthday’ is the 20 September and to mark the occasion we organised a special visit from Mark Francois MP and the Mayor of Basildon, Cllr David Burton-Sampson to mark the event.

Staff and clients were treated to a drink’s reception in the main courtyard at VIP Security HQ. Here  visitors heard how the company was founded by Darren Hyde in 1989 and from humble beginnings the business has expanded into one of the largest providers of security services in Essex and east of London.

Local MP, Mark Francois, took a break from his hectic schedule at the House of Parliament to wish us well. He was pleased to see a local company thriving, he said: “VIP Security Services employs over 100 people in the area, which makes them a large employer. Their work helps to keep us all safe and secure and I can see that their hard work has culminated into a very successful enterprise.”

Darren Hyde, MD, VIP Security Services, explains: “This year has been extra special; not only are we celebrating 30 years in business, we’ve also been awarded a number of industry gongs!

We also received certification from Construction Line proving our expertise in this sector and we’ve been shortlisted for the Essex Business Excellence Awards for Professional Services.”
