Our History

Key Security began trading in 2007, and has evolved into a leading, innovative and technology led security provider.

In August 2012, we acquired an SSAIB security systems provider and this was integrated into the group’s operations, initially holding a small selection of regional accounts.

Over the last 4 years our operational footprint has grown organically through the opening of regional branch offices in Hull, Nottingham, and Newark on Trent, Lincoln and Sheffield.

We are a leading member of the SIA Approved Contractor Scheme having embraced the requirements of the scheme and its value culminating in a score of 161 in August 2016.

Our senior management team has over 50 years of combined security industry experience.

Since our formation, the Company’s growth has been achieved through existing client referrals and repeat business, with successful tender proposals for regional and national contracts adding further new business wins.​
