Head of Operations CDSL
Both as a company and myself personally, we have worked alongside MAN Commercial Protection for the last 10 years during which time, we have built up a very solid relationship with our onsite team of guards and their management team. The team remain professional at all times, and look to support us at short notice offering a first class guard any time, day or night Working relationships with senior management are key to the success of the relationship and in our case, 24/7 support is available either remotely or in person, at a moment’s notice, without hesitation. Working closely together to improve processes/procedures onsite for the better of the operation means we are thinking as one in terms of the safety/security of the site, which works extremely well for us and gives us peace of mind Longevity of the contract shows two major factors, 1) We continue to be happy with the service offered by MAN Commercial Protection, and, 2) Our ongoing commitment to working closely with MAN Commercial Protection to maintain and improve safety/security on our sites, remain key to the success of both our operation and more importantly, our relationship.

After 6 of our security officers guarded 6 supercars at the preview of new film, Le Mans 66, on site at Star City on 12th November 2019. ‘Big thank you to your officers for tonight - they’ve been great!’
Centre Manager, Longton Exchange Shopping Centre
I just wanted to drop a line to pass on my thanks to Man Commercial, especially Gill and James, for the work that’s gone into getting the site on an even keel with a team of really professional security officers. We will hopefully have a new starter as soon as his vetting has completed, he’s already known to the team and I am expecting him to fit in really well. Gill and James have supported the site supervisor as well and this has had a really positive effect on him and enabled him to improve within his role. Today’s KPI reflects the work and support they’ve put, massive thank you to them both.
Group Facilities and Maintenance Manager, LEVC
I’m a big believer in recognising hard work, effort, and simply doing your job well; as opposed to only ever escalating when it’s bad news. In recent months there has been a lot go on here at Ansty, with some extremely high level visits from our Chairman and his team, with various government figures and most recently our Prime Minister. I’ve been so impressed with my main day shift officers Max, Joe, and Scott!! They have been absolute stars and have fronted up massively, I could write a list of all the good, but wouldn’t want to bore you too much. So I’ll simply say this; their responsiveness, support, and professionalism have been nothing short of excellent, and they really have gone above and beyond to support me……. It’s great and extremely settling to know that I have this level of support, and they have the support from you guys at HQ. I’m proud of them, and I’m hoping you guys will be too?!?!?
General Manager, British Lionhearts, BMA Boxing UK Ltd
The team at British Lionhearts have enjoyed working with MCP Ltd during our first season in the World Series of Boxing. The security team at the venue were always keen to help and attentive as were management in the planning stage. On the whole they had a very quiet time, but reacted well on the one occasion they were required. We’ll use MCP again and would recommend them to other event organisers
Head of Direct Services, CYPF / School Effectiveness, Birmingham City Council
Good morning Iain. I have been given your name as a contact at MAN Commercial Protection Ltd, the company that provides the concierge / security personnel for Portland Centre (Birmingham City Council) , this having been EustaceFrancis over a period of about a year now . We are soon to vacate thebuilding but I feel that on behalf of Direct Services , the main occupier of Portland Centre , we must commend Eustace to you as he has given excellent service during the time he has been with us. Eustace is always cheerful, polite, conscientious and wholly professional. He is extremely helpful and always goes that "extra mile" to assist us in our day to day dealings with him. Visitors to the building also comment on the warmth of his greeting and his approach. Nothing is too much trouble for him and we will miss him greatly when we move location in October of this year. I understand that your company has an "employee of the month" scheme and would unreservedly wish to nominate Eustace for this award.
Building Manager High Cross
Last night we had a flooding toilet on floor 5 which threatened to flood through to the landing carpet. I had already gone home but I would just like to say that Rachael from MAN Commercial who handled the situation really well, she kept me informed and helped to put bowls under the dripping water which had made its way through the reception ceiling and also into my kitchen. She stayed until 8.15 pm to make sure everything was ok so please note this for her hours.
- Fantastic effort and many thanks
National Memorial Arboretum
Well done to the team on duty all deserve a pat on the back. I was really happy with the team on Saturday and I thought Kevin was a real gem. We do intend to have a debrief which I hope you are able to attend. We will be in touch with our requirements for the summer shortly
Build Manager, Lovell
Can you please pass on my thanks to the 2 guards, for last Friday at the Rally at Camp Hill. They were both very smart and professional.
Operations Manager, Brewery Shopping Centre, Savills
I thought that I would drop you a note to commend the Man Commercial staff which were on duty on Saturday 17th March, who had to deal with a site wide power cut lasting 35 minutes and the aftermath of this. The two staff who have been especially commended to me are Arslan and Florian, both of these security officers performed well beyond their normal duties dealing with customers and tenant questions and were instrumental in keeping the site operational both during the power cut and getting the site back to normal afterwards. I would be grateful if you could pass on the thanks of the whole of the Man Commercial team at the Brewery, but especially the two above mentioned security officers who are a credit to your company.
Events Manager, Acorns
I am writing to thank you for the support of our Midnight Walk event on Saturday 17th September. We are appreciative for your presence on the night, it was a comfort to the marshals and ladies on the walk knowing you were on hand to provide support on certain areas of the route. It wouldn't be possible for us to put on such events without the generous support of organisations like yourselves. It was a brilliant night and an amazing £80,000 was pledged! Acord relies on donations for more than 80% of its income, so this amount will make a significant difference. Thankyou on behalf of all the children and families of Acorns Children's hospice.
Director of Events, Frank Warren Promotions Ltd
Having used various security companies over the years, at many venues and for many events, MAN Commercial are, by a long way, the most organised and professional team we have ever used which is why for 15 years we have never even considered using any other company to provide our security. Whether it be security for a 1,000 seat hall to a 50,000 seat stadium. MAN Commercial can, and have, handled all aspects of the security operation for us from the planning stage, right up to the event and any post event matters that need to be dealt with. On numerous occasions MAN personnel have been employed by us as cash carriers, personal protection and as overseas security for our clients.
Project Director, Carillion PLC
I would just like to highlight the fact that the prompt action by your guard on Thursday night this week avoided a situation developing outside the site. Shaun contacted the police immediately on seeing a situation developing with two groups of opposing youths out side the site. The police attended within a few minutes and a potential fight was avoided and the antagonised detained. Whilst the incident was not directly on our site it does give us confidence that the night guards are alert to activities in and around the site
Director, Maddison Media
Thanks for Saturday. Your guys were great. Kind regards
Team Manager, Sutton Coldfield Council House
I wanted to pass on my thanks for the work John Adam has been involved in for the last two weeks. I work as a manager in Sutton Coldfield Council House. John has acted as our temporary cover concierge for the building from 17th January until today 28th January. He has been so helpful, cheerful, and polite. He has had such a positive attitude to resolving any difficulties we have had always in a professional manner. I have thanked him personally but I believe it is good to let his employer know too.
Director, Development & Leasing, Frogmore Property
I don’t visit site that often but when I do Darren is a great ambassador for Rivet and really seems to take pride in the building and its care. In fact, if Darren wasn’t the way he is I would probably feel the need to visit more often. In this regard, I am a very satisfied customer!Regards to all at Man Commercial Protection for a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2011.
Volunteer Manager, Acorns
I am writing to thank you for your involvement in the recent Wates Living Space Community Project that took place here at the Acorns Children's Hospice. The hospice building and grounds benefited from a spectacular amount of work and I would especially like to thank you for your specific contribution to the success of the project. It was a pleasure to work alongside you and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Gdi Mangement Personal VIP and Publicist Representation
I have nothing but praise for your team. From my perspective they carried out their duties with the utmost professionalism. They were always there, but unobtrusively so and didn't seek to engage in conversation with their clients. Excellent job and most certainly, should the need arise, I would have no hesitation in calling you again.
Andrew Bonnici, Operations Manager, The Brewery Shopping Centre
I would like to take this opportunity to commend the security staff for their hard work over the period of the riots. Ojay was highlighted as being particularly proactive over this period by Rubie as she worked closely with the night team over this period. Please extend our thanks to all the team.
Event Co-ordinator, NEC GROUP
Firstly can I thank you for delivering the staffing requested at Horse of the Year Show at such short notice, it is always difficult to deliver the volumes we requested with little or no planning time but as always it was successfully delivered. Can I thank you personally and ask that you pass on our thanks to all the staff that worked so hard without issue on what is a very demanding event over some very long hours. I would also like you to pass on my personal thanks to Kevin for his role during the show, he worked alongside myself and Wayne and proved to be a great assistance to both us and the team, he worked exceptionally hard in ensuring both your staff and Arenas staff were kept up to date with any changes and looked out for their welfare during the event. He and all your staff were professional throughout the event and a credit to your company. Once again thank you very much for your assistance in delivering what was a very successful event
Events Manager, Acorns
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the fantastic security team from Man Commercial Protection Ltd that were employed to support our midnight walk on Saturday 11th September 2010. Andy and his security team proved invaluable both at the event and in the advance preperations, and the whole team were, again, a credit to your company with their professionalism. We are sincerely grateful for the generous discount you offer on your services for the event. Acorns would not be able to put on such events without such support. It was, again, a brilliant night and £94,000 was raised. We look forward to working with you in future years. All the very best to you and the team!
Project Manager, Carillion PLC
Carillion Building struck up a relationship with MAN Commercial Protection Ltd at their Curzon Street, Birmingham project in 2007. This relationship grew from strength to strength throughout the project due to the excellent service they provided. Guards on site were well presented, polite, understood what we required from them and were well supported by MAN’s management backup. After the Curzon Street project was completed we had no hesitation in using them on an adjacent project at Aston University as well as recommending them to other Carillion sites in the midlands. I am certain this relationship will continue into the future.
Operations Executive, Showsec
Just a quick line to say thanks for the guy’s you supplied to me for the sponsors at Creamfields, great bunch and I have had some good feedback. Luke was a great help to me and he is a credit to you.
MAN provided a constant professional service across the weekend of Seni, the international combat sports show. With over 26,000 visitors we had nothing but positive feedback for a welcoming team who controlled every aspect of the show.
The Black Country Museum
Many thanks for the excellent service your team provided over the Easter weekend. Although we did not experience any problems it was good to know that they were on hand – better safe than sorry. Please pass my thanks on to the guys. We are planning events for later in the year so will be in touch in the next few weeks regarding these evening events.
Secretary, Knowle and Dorridge Lions
I would like to personally thank you and your company for your contribution without which the day would never be the huge success and an enjoyable community event it has become. When all the sponsorship has been received we hope to be able to donate over £40,000 to charity again this year.
Sales Manager, Fleet Hire Ltd
I wanted to quickly mention that your member of staff who attends the Pay/Display Car Park on Dudley Street just outside of Debenhams was a great help last weekend. He was very friendly, courteous and looked after me in finding some parking at a peak time on weekend.
Events Manager Acorns Childrens Hospice
I would like to thank you and your team for your support of the acorns midnight walk on Saturday 19th September 2009, and for the discount you offered off the costs. The MAN security team proved invaluable at the event, working with our volunteer marshals and the local police to ensure the event was as at safe at all times for the women taking part. It was a wonderful night and £120,000 was pledged, a success beyond all our estimations. Acorns relies on donations for more than 80% of its income so this amount will make a big difference. Thankyou once again and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Quantity Surveyor, Morgan Est plc
It has been a pleasure meeting you and dealing with your company therefore If I require security on further contracts I will have no hesitation in recommending / approaching you for your service. We have found the two security personnel at Ray Hall to be on time, smartly dressed, polite and efficient in the work that they were tasked to do making our weekends more enjoyable knowing that our site was being well looked after.
Bars & Security Manager, Hall Green Stadium
On Friday evening following the storm in the afternoon the ground floor at the stadium was under water. The storm drains had forced the water into the building. With out hesitation or being asked the complete team of security officer joined stadium staff in clearing the water and cleaning the building to allow our customers in and for the evening to take place. I and the stadium team cannot thank your staff enough for the help they gave in clearing the water and cleaning up. Once again this shows how good your staff are and I would like you to know about this and I take the opportunity to thank you for your continuing support for Hall Green. Thanks
I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team's involvement with our debut launch last weekend. As anticipated over 150 people pitched up on the saturday in the hope of buying a new home. Both Mark and Stephen were fantastic in managing the crowd and kept control throughout the day. Without them it would have been a logistical nightmare! We are now planning a similar launch so look forward to working with you again
Howards of Stratford LTD
I would like to thank you for your help with my security over the last few months. I appreciate the advice you and your team gave me, the high calibre of the men you supplied for the job who did exactly what I wanted - being discreetly noticable - gave me the cover I needed. I would have no hesitation on recommending you and your company in the future
Producer, Avalon Promotions
I am writing to thank you for all your hard work in making the above show a success. Frank Skinner & David Baddiel and all of us here at Avalon are very pleased with the end result. I hope there will be opportunities for us to work together on future projects.

David J Preston
Town Clerk, Oswestry Town Council
On behalf of the Town Council, I would like to thank you for the excellent service which your company provided on Friday 1st December 2006. This was the third event of this type and it would appear to have been the most successful yet. Thank you once again
Inspector N Knight
It is with pleasure that I say I was and still am very impressed with the way you and your staff conducted themselves. They were extremely professional in an arena that could at any time seen violence erupt. It was obvious to me that each of you had a job to do and you all go on with it without any problems or concerns. As the senior police officer there, it was reassuring to know that security was being run by a well-trained and experienced individual who was supported similarly by dedicated Staff. I thank you for all of your help both before, during and post event and int would have absolutely no reservations to working with you and your company again.
Event Manager, Millenium Stadium
On Behalf of the Millenium Stadium Team, I just wanted to express our thanks for helping deliver a very sucessful event over the weekend. The staff were very helpful and professional at all times throughout the event and it was a pleasure to work with you all. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Senior Marketing Executive, Aston Villa Football Club
I just wanted to write to thank MAN Security for your help at the recent Kit Launch event in Brindley Place in Birmingham City Centre. In organising the event and not knowing how many members of the public would turn up, we required a security solution that was flexible and well-organised. We certainly got such a service from MAN and the higher than expected crowd - most of which were eager to get close to our first team members - were dealt with in a respectful but firm manner.I would particularly like to thank those members of your team tasked with marshalling the players through the crowd to the stage, VIP lounges, changing areas and their cars - I think Luke, Craig and Brad were their names. They did a fantastic job and helped us unveil the 2008/09 replica kits to the watching world through a very smooth and unproblematic event. We wish you all the success in the future and will keep you on the radar for any possible upcoming events.
Sgt Peter Sellers
Planning & Events Office
On behalf of Insp. Mo Razaq and myself, can I compliment and thank you for the excellent service you gave at the above event. Your management team and staff were efficient and prompt in dealing with any issues that arose during the evening. Their ability to use conflict resolution in dealing with potentially volatile situations was evident and their smart appearance gave a professional image. Thanks once again and I look forward to working with you in the future.
Event Co-ordinator, NEC GROUP
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supplying 50 plus staff each open day for the Horse of the Year show at such late request.

Your staff worked extremely well and are a credit to your company. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your staff in the near future.
Operations Manager, Stratford-upon-Avon Town Management Partnership
