A Venture customer since 2012, Aster Group is an ethical housing developer and social landlord operating within Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, and Devon & Cornwall. The company conducts its operations from 12 regional locations, which cumulatively employ 1,300 members of staff and provide storage for company-owned vehicles and machinery, integral to The Group’s commercial endeavours.
With business-critical assets and 1000+ employees to protect, Aster needed support to safeguard its premises and its people. Having outsourced its security previously (with unsatisfactory results) the company was keen to bring in a trusted contractor with a credible performance history.
Key requirements of Aster’s security contract included:
Protecting Aster staff and assuming all security-related responsibilities
After impressing Facilities Manager, Rhiannah Townley, with its resource and capabilities, Venture was subsequently appointed Aster’s Group-wide security partner across its five regional locations. Providing on site support to Aster employees in their day-to-day working environment and assuming full responsibility for security processes.
