Scorpion Security was founded in 1990 by Michael Bennett following his long tenure with the UK largest Security provider at that time, Securicor – now known as G4S.
Initially a Manned Guarding company, Mike created the Scorpion branding and the striking high-profile Keyholding and Patrol response vehicles that others now replicate across the security industry today.
When electronic security systems such as CCTV, Access Control and Intruder Alarms became a more cost-effective solution, the company broadened its horizons when Mike’s son, Mark, joined the company in 2001 bringing with him a wealth of knowledge in this field. Mark had worked for the UK’s biggest electrical wholesaler for a number of years across departments from van driving to warehouse and sales to management before bringing that skill set and knowledge into the family business.
Mark introduced Eugene Murray as Sales Manager to the business in 2003 having met and played football together in the local town league. With Eugene’s experience, together they built up the client base and introduced an Engineering department to provide a one stop shop to the new and existing client base. With a 24hour Control Room already in-situ, for the existing manned services, it was an easy process to add Remote Monitored CCTV to the list of services and therefore be able to provide an additional proactive layer of security to clients.
Further personnel in Sales, Accounting, HR and Administration have been added over the years along with many long serving Officers and Engineers. With regular training, health, wellbeing and development provided to all staff the company always aims to reward individuals for their hard work and commitment to provide the best work/life balance.
Scorpion Security has continued to organically grow and now boasts an enthusiastic, professional and committed team of employees, an extensive wide- ranging client base of Councils, Schools, Blue Chip Internationals, SME’s and Domestic along with accreditation with NSI and ISO and many others to both solidify and support the importance of customer service mantra that Mike first instilled over 30 years ago – “Put the Customer 1st and everything else will follow"
