FGH Security was founded in 2003 with the mission and purpose of raising the standards in the UK Private Security Industry.
In early 2003, our very first customers were Grizedale and County Colleges at Lancaster University; we provided a team to work one night only for the Extravaganza parties.
At the time, Door Supervisors were still called Bouncers, and many wore bomber jackets and tracksuits and would smoke on the door. Extreme, unnecessary violence was commonplace, and it was not unusual for teams of Bouncers to meet for a few pints prior to starting work!
The training was different back then too; Door Supervisors took a one-day course and then applied for a license with their local council. It cost £40 per year for the license. Security Guards nationwide had no license or training given.
We aimed to raise these standards. We created many new courses, implemented 100’s of procedures, and developed best practices in hospitality, security and incident management. Because of this we are the most decorated Private Security company in the UK and are the only Security Company ever to be recognised as a Times Top 100 Employer. As we continue to grow we want to stay faithful to our vision and continue to Keep People Safe.
