Amberstone Security becomes security partner for Tesco

We’re delighted to announce that we have secured a security services contract with supermarket giant, Tesco.

We will provide security solutions for over 330 Tesco stores across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Northern England to help keep customers and staff safe while they shop and work.

We were chosen as the security partner after a rigorous 10 month-long tender process, in which we competed against several other UK leading security companies. Our data-driven approach to saving our clients money while simultaneously reducing risk will enable us to supply over 700 security officers through manned guarding solutions, which include static and roaming security officers, and risk solutions to Tesco stores.

Jim McFedries, our Group Operations Director has been heavily involved in initiating the contract since it was awarded in mid-August 2021, and says:

“We are delighted to be working with Tesco to supply security for their stores across the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

Our immediate priority was to implement a comprehensive risk analysis for each store in order to keep safe our Tesco colleagues, the premises, assets, and the people who shop there. 

It’s a huge contract, and we are thrilled to welcome our new employees to the Amberstone family. Our team really make the difference – ensuring we have the right people, in the right places, at the right time

recent study indicated that the global Manned Guarding Market is expected to grow and be worth $220 billion by 2024. This encouraging news coupled with our Tesco contract has the potential to offer vast employment opportunities to security personnel with an SIA Licence in the future.
