British Steel awards contract to Triton Security

A  contract to secure British Steel sites and protect our assets has been awarded to Triton Security.

The national security specialist was selected following a recent tender process, and will work with us for an initial period of two years.

As part of the deal, Triton will provide 24-hour security at our Scunthorpe integrated steelworks site in North Lincolnshire, as well as at British Steel’s Special Profiles operation at Skinningrove in North Yorkshire, our Special Profiles Darlington site and our TSP Engineering business in Workington, West Cumbria.

“Securing our sites and assets is vitally important to us,” explained British Steel CEO Ron Deelen.

“Triton have worked with us throughout the recent global pandemic to help us meet the changing needs of our business and have proved to be responsive and reliable.

“We look forward to working with them to further enhance our site security with new vehicles and personnel trained to the highest standard.”

Triton will provide three new state-of-the-art off-road security vehicles and an enhanced training package for around 80 security staff, who will transfer from our previous service provider.

“We are delighted to be the security provider for British Steel,” explained Triton Security’s Group Sales Director, Lauren Paver. 

“This new relationship shines a light on the high standard of our operations team, processes and innovation that we all work so hard to keep market-leading. 

“I know our operations lead for British Steel, Richard Braithwaite, will focus the team to deliver a continually developing security operation.”
