Welcome from our Chief Executive Officer, Iain McCallister

Iain McCallister Managing Director of MAN Commercial Protection LtdA very warm welcome to MAN Commercial Protection Limited – thank you for visiting our website.

We are a family run business who are now entering our 28th year trading. Our Company strategy has been founded on a basic principle: success in business comes through the consistent delivery of quality, value and service to clients. Coupled with a passion for recruiting, training and retaining the best teams we possibly can, this philosophy has allowed MAN Commercial Protection to become more and more successful year upon year.

We are delighted that this was still the case in 2020, a year that proved to be more challenging than anyone could have imagined. Despite the obvious difficulties and unknowns caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, we are delighted to enter January 2021 publishing our largest profits ever and demonstrating a huge 47% growth turnover on the previous year. Continued growth and promoting the position of the Company as a market leader in the industry has always been a key focus of mine, and I am starting 2021 by amending my title to Chief Executive Officer after over 27 years as Managing Director. 

As we near 30 years in business, we are proud that so many of our large and diverse client base have been customers for over 20 years; we credit this loyalty with the responsible, professional and honest relationships we hold. Similarly, many of our colleagues have also been with us for two decades now, and it is a pleasure to be thought of as such a rewarding Company to work for and somewhere people find a career they love.

We work by the motto ‘The Heart of Our Business Is Our People’ and take pleasure in recognising and rewarding those who consistently perform to the highest standards or go above and beyond. Last year, we presented over 50 Employee of the Month prizes to Officers across the UK.

One of the most exciting aspects of MAN Commercial is the vast variety of the work we undertake: we are skilled in all areas of Manned Guarding, meaning we are familiar with a rich assortment of markets and business sectors across the UK. Please see our ‘Services’ page for more on what we can offer.

The Security Industry is changing all the time, and even more quickly recently due to Covid-19. The last few years in particular have seen a huge rise in the need for our services at vast distribution centres owned by our high-profile delivery specialist clients.

Furthermore, we have been keenly supporting clients working as part of the NHS supply chain throughout 2020, and now we are working alongside the pharmaceutical sector supporting the secure storage and distribution of the eagerly- awaiting Covid-19 vaccines.  

The events of 2020 have sadly meant that the Events industry has been almost non-existent since March. We have always loved staffing events from music concerts to high-profile televised sporting events to large stadium shows, and whilst we missed this part of our business last year, we are lucky to have been kept busy with our services and Event Teams deployed elsewhere.

I am now joined at MAN Commercial by a line-up of 9 Directors, and a large team of Regional Contract Managers operating out in the field across the UK. Last year we significantly grew our Head Office support teams who cover HR, Recruitment, Compliance, Accounts and Operational Administration, along with adding to our Control Room, our West Midlands contact centre which is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, making it the busy hub of our business.

We have also increased our Keyholding and Alarm Response portfolio recently, with over 50 new locations signed up in December. All response services are managed centrally from our Control Room. 

In all that we do, it is the spirit of our Management Team together with the professionalism, performance and dedicated commitment of all our staff that I believe helps MAN Commercial Protection stand out from its competitors. Our close-knit team thrive on hard work and success and have a genuine enjoyment for what we do. We continue to grow and remain ambitious – I look forward to where we will be in another 28 years!

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website. If you would like to speak to us regarding a Security requirement, are interested in working for us or have any questions at all, we would love to hear from you. Please call us on 0121 733 8484 where you can speak to one of the team 24 hours a day.
