Soundsec gets the Gold
Soundsec's NSI Guarding Gold Accreditation
The most assured quality mark within the security industry has been officially awarded to Ocean Group security provider Soundsec.
The London-based company which was acquired by Ocean last year has formally been awarded National Security Inspectorate (NSI) Guarding Gold Accreditation.
NSI is the leading approvals and certification body that inspects companies providing home security, business security and fire safety services. Its aim is to raise standards in the security and fire industries in the interests of the customer.
NSI Gold companies go beyond the standard NSI accreditation by meeting higher standards of quality and demonstrating a long term track record of performance, reliability and stability.
Ocean Security Solutions Managing Director Steve Webb said: “The NSI Guarding Gold quality mark is widely recognised in the Security Industry as the best indicator of a company’s commitment to providing the very best service and is the highest level of achievement possible. Our customers can be assured that they are using the services of a reputable and well organised company and our staff know that they are employed by a business that is at the very top of the industry.
“A great deal of work has gone into achieving this recognition both behind the scenes and on every site and the participation of everyone is greatly appreciated.
“By achieving and retaining this recognition, we will ensure that the company is best placed to attract new clients and continue to grow.”
