Weston FM wins UK-wide deal with Speedy Services

13 May 2016 | Herpreet Kaur Grewal

Welsh-based Weston Facilities Management Group has signed a national security contract with integrated services provider Speedy Services.

The firm’s chairman is Simon Weston CBE, the Falklands War veteran. 

Weston FM is to provide a full range of security services, including security dog units and front-of house-operatives, to Speedy Services’ sites across the UK.

Speedy Services operates across the industrial and engineering sector, and as well as having a 12-and-a-half-acre location at Newport Docks, it has sites in England, Ireland and in Abu Dhabi.

Simon Weston, chair of the Weston FM Group, said: “Like us, [Speedy] is currently in the process of expanding and growing its operations in the UK, and we are pleased that we are going to be part of that journey.

“Not only will this relationship be a huge benefit to both companies, it will create new jobs across the UK in the security sector, and we are looking forward to a long working relationship together.”

The deal is the latest step in the Weston FM Group’s growth plans.

The company has recently rebranded from Weston Security to the Weston Facilities Management Group, and appointed a new director, Robert Richards, who brings his own security company, Alpha Logistics, into the Weston fold.

The merger secures around £1 million worth of contracts for the company, increases its core team to seven, and expands its reach across the UK with new offices in Cardiff, Shrewsbury and London.
