As well as a new deal with Stiller in Newton Aycliffe he recently signed contracts with manufacturing companies in Sunderland and Leeds. The company and the now familiar white vans, moved into Aycliffe at the start of the year.
The Sparta Task Force kept its entire Aycliffe base secure during the recent lock down, with so many premises closed. More than 100 guards and 20 Task Force personnel provided covert surveillance for properties and a number of businesses across the park implemented its bespoke services.
Sparta's close links with Durham Police helped secure a firm ring around client's locked down premises, adding to the firms growing reputation. Their presence was 24/7 and their white vans and SIA-certified guards, largely made up of ex-military personnel, constantly patrolled every street and corner of the area with the latest hi-tech equipment, CCTV and night and day patrols.
Francis added: "We are winning contracts because we offer peace of mind. You know you are leaving your premises in the hands of professional people.
"It's taken care of by senior advisors and recruiters who have worked in Iraq and Afghanistan in close protection work and who are the eyes and ears of the operation."
