NORTHERN IRELAND’s biggest independent security provider and facilities management company Mercury Security & Facilities Management (MSFM) has been reappointed to provide a complete security solution to CastleCourt Shopping Centre following a rigorous tender process.


CastleCourt, in the heart of Belfast’s busy city centre, first opened its doors in 1990 and is one of Northern Ireland’s biggest and busiest shopping centres.


The three-year contract will see Mercury Security & Facilities Management provide an integrated security solution that combines a team of well-equipped and highly trained security and customer service officers with the latest in CCTV and monitoring technology to protect the assets of the shopping centre and its tenants.


Headquartered in Lisburn with offices in Dublin, Limerick and London, MSFM has established a strong reputation as a leading security provider in the retail sector.


Its impressive portfolio of retail clients features household names such as Homebase, HMV and Woodie’s DIY stores, as well as a host of shopping centres, including the Kennedy Centre, Abbey Centre, Park Centre, Connswater, Angel Central (London), Ashley Centre (Epsom) and Lion Walk Shopping Centre (Colchester).


Following a recent tender process, we are delighted to reappoint Mercury to look after our considerable security requirements,” said CastleCourt Centre Manager Leona Barr.


“Mercury’s understanding of our requirements gave us the confidence to continue with our partnership at the centre. Their knowledge of the local retail sector is an important factor and will allow us to deliver a safe customer focused experience for everyone.”


Mercury Security & Facilities Management Managing Director Liam Cullen added: “Winning new business is obviously great for any company, but holding on to existing customers, in a competitive tender process, is the true test of the work you do and the services you provide.  In this respect, everyone at Mercury Security & Facilities Management is delighted to be renewing our successful partnership with the team at CastleCourt Shopping Centre.


This is a very prestigious contract and continues to place Mercury at the forefront of the industry as a trusted partner for some of the world’s leading companies and retail organisations,” he added.


“Over the years, we have invested millions in the latest technology and training available to enable us to provide innovative, integrated solutions to our growing list of clients, and big wins like this show that our investment strategy is paying off,” concluded Mr Cullen.
