Posted 20 February, 2017
Cayman security company, The Security Centre Ltd., has grown substantially from its roots as a local business, first to having international operations and now officially launching a new location in mainland US – to target new markets.
The company has today, launched its U.S. operations from Chattanooga, Tennessee to serve security requirements for both government and commercial businesses throughout the South-Eastern U.S.
This expansion comes after more than 20 years servicing the Caribbean with its regional headquarters in the Cayman Islands and offices in Bermuda and the Bahamas.
The international arm of the company is named Security Centres International and employees over 700 full-time staff.
“Plenty of international companies come to set-up in Cayman – but we’re proud to be a Cayman company growing internationally into the US. There aren’t too many examples of that – so we’re delighted to represent our home country in a bigger market,” said, Stuart Bostock, president of The Security Centre.
The company will focus on delivering a range of security offerings, including surveillance, CCTV and border control systems; access control and building management; corrections services; as well as behavioral analysis and screening.
It will also capitalise on an exciting new growth area in the security space according to Stuart Bostock, President of the Security Centres International Group of Companies.
“We have a multi-disciplinary team of security experts and we have the capability to provide tailor-made solutions.
“One exciting growth area that we’re launching is our own bespoke aerial and underwater un-manned, surveillance systems designed specifically for each client’s unique requirements,” said Bostock.
More than just a drone company, SCI (USA) will provide clients a complete end-to-end data capture solution.
The company has delivered an impressive portfolio of projects. Some highlights include the national CCTV systems for the governments of the Antigua & Barbuda, the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas as well as a range of other electronic security projects in Jamaica, the British Virgin Islands, Trinidad & Tobago, Dominican Republic, Guyana and Panama.
The company has been warmly received in the Chattanooga business community.
“Our region serves as a very successful base of operations for dozens of international companies and we’re excited to see SCI grow in Chattanooga,” said Charles Wood, vice president of the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce.
Having secured a number of U.S. distribution agreements, SCI (USA) will exhibit at the world’s premier event for security professionals – the ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas later this year. The event will host 23,000 attendees showcasing products and services from over 550 of the world’s security industry innovators.
Another major accomplishment for SCI is their acceptance for membership in the PSA Security Network. As the world’s largest electronic security cooperative, PSA boasts 300 plus branch locations, employs nearly 6,000 security industry professionals and is responsible for over $3.5 billion annually in security, fire and life safety installations.
“We are pleased to announce that SCI is PSA’s first Caribbean member and is rapidly becoming one of our major purchasers of security equipment for export to the Caribbean,” said Ric McCullough, VP sales & customer service for PSA Network.
