Where it all began
The Classic Group story started in 1947 when Classic Security was founded by the father of current Chairman, with a vision of caring for our clients’ properties, day and night. From small beginnings, we have grown and helped to shape an industry that has developed and matured over the last 60 years.
Our company today
Since those early days, we have also developed as a company, and now offer services in estate maintenance and commercial cleaning as well as security. Now with more than 60 years’ experience in the industry, we are the first choice for many companies, organisations, and local authorities.
While we have a rich pedigree, this doesn’t preclude us from being a modern and progressive company. We strive to continually innovate and apply the latest thinking and technologies, in order to deliver the most cutting edge services for our clients. This approach means we continue to grow and win new business, while also retaining clients, some of whom have benefited from our services for 25 years or more.
What has never changed is the passion we have for our work, and we believe this is what truly differentiates us from the competition. We really care about what we do and our management team are very much ‘hands on’. If you choose to work with Classic Security, you’ll soon find that our focus on personal service, professionalism and continued culture of innovation make us the natural choice for all your property protection requirements.
Why choose Classic Security?
There are three core reasons to choose Classic over any other provider of security or commercial cleaning services:
Classic Group is a family company and we are now managed by the granddaughter of our founder. Both Charlotte, our MD, and Paul, our Chairman, have grown up with the company and the industry and for them it is not simply a job, it is a way of life. Where else would you find a director of the company out at 03:00 directing operations, ensuring that they lead from the front and not expecting staff to do something that they themselves are not prepared to do? This is the Classic culture.
Our professional but personal service means we really get to know our clients’ business and also our clients as people. This creates positive, long-term working relationships and, importantly, trust between us and our clients. This is why we have managed to retain some of our clients for over 25 years.
Our approach may be more personal than the competition but we are every bit as professional. Our Security Industry Association (SIA) Approved Contractor Scheme score is 143, which places Classic in the top 10% of government-approved security companies in the UK.
This means you can be assured that our standards and professionalism exceed most of our competitors, and this has been independently verified. Align that to the 15 accreditations achieved across all aspects of our business, including health & safety and environmental compliance, and we believe that we can demonstrate a quality of service second to none.
We may not be the largest company in the marketplace, but this doesn’t preclude us from being an industry leader. For example, our latest interactive CCTV system is exclusive to Classic Security in the UK. It is revolutionary in its operation, as well as providing significant cost savings in comparison with more traditional systems.
