Mercury Rising in Retail

Mercury Security & Facilities Management, has expanded its growing portfolio of shopping centre clients after being awarded the security contract for Scotch Hall Shopping Centre in Drogheda.

The announcement marks an expansion into the ROI shopping centre market for Mercury, which already boasts a number of Northern Ireland-based centres under its protection, including Castle Court, Kennedy Centre, Abbey Centre and Connswater.

Regarded as one of the country’s premiere shopping destinations, Scotch Hall in Drogheda boasts 50 stores made up of a mixture of local Irish retailers and big-name brands.

Following a rigorous tender process, the new contract will see Mercury provide a core team of expertly equipped and fully trained security officers, with ready access to additional support and resources, to service the account in tandem with additional customer relations staff to man the Customer Service desk and car park.

Liam Cullen, Mercury’s Regional Director UK and Ireland, said: “This is a very prestigious contract and everyone at Mercury Security is delighted to be working with the team at Scotch Hall Shopping Centre and the property management agent Lambert Smith Hampton.

“Over the past decade, we have invested more than £5 million into the latest technology and training available to enable us to provide innovative, holistic security solutions to our growing list of clients in the retail space, and in particular shopping centres.

“This contract with Scotch Hall reflects how our experience, coupled with our investment in training and technology, is now enabling us to expand successfully into the ROI shopping centre market. Furthermore, it continues to place Mercury at the forefront of the security industry and as a trusted partner for some of the world’s leading companies and retail organisations,” added Mr Cullen.

Peter Dolan, Scotch Hall Shopping Centre Manager, said: “The safety and security of our customers, staff and premises is paramount at Scotch Hall and it is important that our security operations reflect this. We are extremely impressed by Mercury’s bespoke security applications and innovative approach to security.”
