Sector leader, G4S Secure Solutions Bahrain, experienced significant growth in 2017 and managing director, Atanu Sanyal, is optimistic this trend will continue over the coming months.
G4S has seen double-digit growth in 2017, which has been one of its best years. Atanu says: “We are confident as a team and hoping to deliver double-digit growth in 2018. G4S’s highest priority is to train and employ Bahraini nationals to provide premium security to our customers.”
He adds: “We work with almost all segments of the industry. I think the best opportunity for growth will be in critical infrastructure projects. We have local and global capabilities and we can add value to that segment when it comes to electronic security solutions or a combination of technology and human expertise.”
The group has major expansion plans, including the launch of a facility management services operation, with hard and soft facilities. G4S will also create a manpower recruitment company offering skilled and unskilled workers to customers under its own visa. A new security guard operation is also in the pipeline with some urgency. Atanu explains: “This company needs immediate action as we already have 500 guards and, as per the Bahraini law, no security company can have more than 500 guards.
“We also plan to build a new cash centre in Bahrain with an estimated investment of USD250,000 to USD300,000.”
The company currently works with embassies and ministries, retail, banking, oil and gas, construction, transportation, aviation and the telecommunications sector. It prides itself on establishing standards of excellence for the provision of professional quality security services to meet customers’ needs while addressing the security risks involved all under the banner of its corporate philosophy of empowerment, accountability, communication and teamwork.
