Axis Security
, one of the UK’s leading security services providers, has agreed a new partnership with system specialists Evolution (Electronic Security Systems) Ltd to further expand and extend the services delivered to its Blue Chip client base nationwide.

The agreement will enable Axis Security to further enhance both the quality and scale of its electronic security capabilities that currently comprise intruder detection, access control and CCTV, and includes a remote monitoring capability from its own remote video response centre (RVRC) in Yorkshire.

With offices in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Dublin, Evolution benefits similarly from the opportunity for further work within the professional services/high-end commercial sites in which Axis Security specialises.

Jonathan Levine, Axis Group Chief Executive, said that the new agreement was a logical path for the business to take: “Partnering with a specialist such as Evolution, with an established track record for excellence, will further strengthen our electronic security capabilities and help us meet an increasing demand from our clients for a more holistic approach to help reduce costs, minimise risk and optimise protection where required,” he said.

Richard Lambert, Director of Evolution, agreed: “Our two companies are well matched in our market approach, professional standards , and in our mutual desire to provide best-in-class services,” he said.

“Working with Axis Security will support us in our ambition to deliver high-technology security solutions to a wider number of commercial clients, and enhance our service delivery to our own client base to include manned guarding.”

Founded in 1996 by John Wust and Richard Lambert and still privately owned, Evolution has grown into one of the UK’s leading qualified and accredited systems integrators. Bringing together high-end security solutions, it is an IT-centric team, delivering IP-based systems and helping customers migrate from the old analogue to the new.

Established in 1994, Axis Security is one of the UK’s fastest growing security providers with a wide range of professional services that include manned guarding, reception services, mobile patrols, keyholding, remote monitoring and electronic security systems.
