Excellent service keeps distribution centres running smoothly

As a worldwide office product supplier, Lyreco depends on the efficiency and security of its distribution centres.  Their large central facility based in Telford, Shropshire is the hub of its entire UK operations. Olympian provides contract security services to help secure the centre, providing uniformed officers round-the-clock. One of their primary duties is access control, monitoring CCTV, controlling the access of delivery trucks and visitors to the site. On a busy day, the center can receive and load very high numbers of trucks and officers are tasked with ensuring that access to the loading bays is controlled to ensure a smooth operation without jams.  

Jamie Mills, Head of Facilities at Lyreco said “Olympian have delivered on their promises.  Their officers are well trained and smartly turned out and there is a good infrastructure supporting them.  I have consistent management support with regular meetings and a commitment to a fast response to any issues identified.  Overall, I couldn’t recommend Olympian high enough its simply excellent service and value for money.

High Value goods need careful control

Warehouses can be vulnerable areas which are not easy to control. Internal and external theft present a high risk for designer retailer Matches Fashion at its busy distribution centres in London.  Olympian’s strategy at Matches is focused on prevention, providing well trained vigilant officers to monitor and control the movement of stock in the warehouses and act as driver’s mates during wholesale deliveries. 

The contract requires fluctuating Security Guarding cover at the retail stores across London, patrols of the warehouses, supporting drivers and recording stock movement, CCTV monitoring, control of contractors and access control. Olympian also provides additional resource for the many special events that take place across the year. 

Security Manager Zoey Naidoo says of our services “As a premier retailer of high end designer goods, Matches require officers of an excellent pedigree, possessing a high level of vigilance and strong security awareness. Olympian have delivered exactly what they promised.  They have provided a fantastic team of consistent, reliable officers who are committed to the job in hand. As a rapidly expanding business, particularly through our online division, our needs have been continuously met and supported by management.
