Palmaris Services Announced as Best Scottish Security Firm
Coatbridge-based Palmaris Services has been awarded 'Regional Winner for Scotland - Best Team 2014' by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), for providing excellent security services to Skypark, Scotland's biggest business campus home to 40 businesses and over 3,500 staff.
The award was formally presented on 31st March 2014 to the team, by Trevor Elliot, BSIA Director of Manpower and Membership Services. It also recognises Palmaris' services to the Skypark community for its charity work, learning British Sign Language to improve communication with a deaf member of staff and for supporting the global event 'Social Media Week'. As Scottish winners, Palmaris Services will gain automatic entry into the National BSIA awards to be held later this year.
Daniel Harkness, contracts manager, Palmaris Services said: "We were competing against very successful nationwide companies and for Palmaris to be named as Best Scottish Security Firm is a significant achievement of which we are all very proud.
"We work within a relatively small marketplace and companies prefer to be able to deal with someone who can give them a personal service and approach. Our business is about people and thrives on developing good working relationships between our staff and clients. It's thanks to our staff and the Skypark team for all their support in helping us to achieve the award."
Mark Holmes of Moorfield Group, the investment and asset manager of the Moorfield Real Estate Fund II which owns Skypark said: "This Award is great endorsement for Palmaris Services and for our excellent services provision at Skypark. Our business campus is not just a place to work it's a place that works for tenants in an inspiring location. Skypark offers a unique business hotel concept with a full concierge service and a multitude of onsite facilities including a nursery, prescription delivery, dry cleaning services as well as fitness classes, art exhibitions, regular site socials and venue space for business events, making it the best place to work in Scotland."
Malcolm McFetridge, centre manager of Skypark added: "The willingness and dedication to get the job done, regardless of what it involves is the reason for their success. The BSIA award gives the Palmaris team the recognition they deserve."
