About Doxford International Business Park

Doxford International Business Park

Doxford International is a 50 hectare site located at the A19 / A690 interchange, on the outskirts of Sunderland and developed by Sunderland City Council and Goodman Property. It is one of the UK’s main locations for corporate HQs and contact centres serving the financial and customer service sectors, with companies like Barclays and EDF Energy having bases here.

The Challenge

The requirement was for 24-hour protection of the business park, and with multiple companies operating across the site employing more than 8,000 people, it is not a small undertaking. In addition to the offices and contact centres, the Business Park also has small retail outlets and leisure facilities.

Protecting large business parks, such as Doxford International, requires a tailored strategy that will ensure all businesses and buildings are constantly monitored, with the combination of a physical presence and a surveillance system.


“They are customer focused and in our experience provide security officers who operate at a higher level of professionalism than their competitors.”


The Solution

Axis Security was appointed to provide 24-hour protection of the building with routine patrols, monitoring CCTV both locally and remotely, as well as managing access control. Additionally, Axis Security provides CCTV installation and maintenance services to Doxford International.

Axis Security has been working with Goodman’s at Rainton Bridge Business Park for some time, and Niall McGilp, Regional Development Director at Goodman’s says they have always been impressed by the quality of security and service.

“As a result, granting Axis Security the contract for Doxford International was an easy decision to make,” Niall says, “the standard of management they display is the best we have encountered. They are customer focused and in our experience provide security officers who operate to a higher level of professionalism than their competitors,” Niall adds.

Jonathan Levine, Axis Group CEO, is pleased to be working with such an important venue for business in Sunderland: “Doxford is attracting a number of very high profile clients who have a greater requirement
for security, so it is incredibly satisfying to know that Axis Security has won the tender continuing our relationship with some of the most prestigious sites in the UK.”
