Capital Law

Capital law have used specialist Security Company since moving to our new offices and have found them to be responsive, reliable, and approachable. They are always able to provide cover at short notice and are flexible and responsive to our demand. I would have no hesitation recommending the security services provided by Specialist Security Company.

DSP Construction Management:

“ I have worked in the construction industry for over 35 years for a number of high profile companies as well as world-renowned brands. During this time I have engaged a number of different security companies, all of which had varying merits. Although I was aware of Specialist Security prior to this project, I had never worked with them. I am happy to admit that during this project I have found Specialist Security to be by far the best security company I have used to date. We have found Specialist’s management team to be pro-active, approachable, and professional with a response time that would put the emergency services to shame. Both their management and operatives on the ground provide a refreshing approach to the new challenges that arise daily, always looking to innovate and improve systems already in place. I would highly recommend Specialist Security to anyone and I would be happy to use them on all of my projects.”

Specialist Security have provided our Newport site with security guards for the past three years. The service provided is exceptional with the focus being putting the client first. The guards at our site not only provide guarding but act as our front of house, providing us with great service and a considerable cost saving. Highly recommended.
