Marsh Barton Security Services is to open a new shop at its Exeter headquarters after being awarded the highest industry standard accreditation by the National Security Inspectorate.
The National Approvals Council for Security Systems’ gold standard comes after the company passed an examination of its quality management and technical expertise.
MBSS has been trading for more than 30 years and was bought in May 2012 by ex-Royal Marine Marcus Di-Vincenzo.
Marcus, who lives locally, already owns and runs a successful security company that operates worldwide, offering personal security services for high profile, high net-worth personalities and event security.
“It’s a great testament to the team at MBSS that we have been awarded the NACOSS gold for our security systems,” he said. “Marsh Barton Security Services has been based in Exeter for 30 years and already had the foundations of a great business. What I have done is to build on those foundations and push it forward to the top of the security services industry. The NACOSS Gold award will help to reassure new customers that we are top of the game.”
Marcus relocated the MBSS headquarters to Marsh Gate House, the former Phillips auction house on Alphin Brook Road, at the end of last year.
He added: “We are hoping to open a new security shop at our offices in Marsh Barton in a few weeks. We will have a range of security equipment and cameras on display so that people can come in and see how the systems work and the real benefits, first hand.
“We’re really excited about this new concept that customers can try security services before they buy.”
