Axis Group extends services to Wulfrun Shopping Centre

10 July 2013

London Cambridge properties (LCP), which manages the Wulfrun Shopping Centre, has chosen Axis Security, a supplier of bespoke security solutions, to provide manned guarding services to the city centre shopping mall. Axis Cleaning and Support services, formally LPM Cleaning and Support services, already meets the cleaning and maintenance needs of the facility in the heart of Wolverhampton’s city centre.

Axis Security will provide the shopping centre’s 64 retail, bakery and café outlets with 228 weekly manned guarding hours. Officers will be responsible for the security, health, safety and well being of the tenants and public using the centre. All officers will be first aid qualified and included in Axis’ bespoke, site specific training. Each officer will be trained to evacuate the centre’s lifts should there be a relevant emergency.

LCP is one the UK’s largest private owners of industrial, retail and office property to let, managing a portfolio in excess of 14 million square feet across the UK, which is held for long term investment purposes. LCP uses its intensive management approach to enhance returns and maximise asset growth. The group is committed to further expansion by acquisition and development of quality commercial property to rent in key UK locations.

Axis Security won the contract over tough competition from two other providers. “All three providers offered excellent proposals,” says Colin Quinton, Centre Manager at the Wulfrun Shopping Centre. “The decision was swayed towards Axis because of the customer-focussed relationship that we already have with the Cleaning division and by using Axis for both contracts they were able to offer excellent value for money.

“It’s a tough economic climate for retailers,” Colin continues, “and it helps them to know that their businesses and the 200,000 weekly visitors will be protected by well-trained and dedicated officers and that these high-quality services will still help keep their service charges at the lowest possible rates.”

Jonathan Levine, Axis Group CEO, says this is an important win for the Group. “It demonstrates to the Shopping Centre both the breadth of the services the Axis Group offers and the cost efficiencies that can be gained by using the Group to provide dual services.”
