Westminster announces that its Close Protection and Consultancy division, the Longmoor Group, has been awarded a rolling 12 month contract for the protection of a High Net Worth Individual and his family based in the Middle East.
Under the contract, Longmoor will provide both male and female close protection operatives (bodyguards) providing 24hr security to the principal and his family both within their home country and also during their worldwide travels.
The Contract is valued at £540,000 per annum and will commence immediately.
Commenting on the contract award Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of Westminster Group, said:
"We acquired Longmoor earlier this year because we believed the Company to have significant growth prospects which could be enhanced by Westminster’s worldwide presence and marketing expertise. This has been borne out by the significant rise in enquiry activity that the Company is currently experiencing and I am delighted to be able to announce this latest long term contract award which gives good visibility of earnings through 2010.
"It is yet another example of Westminster’s ability to win business and deploy a broad range of security solutions to clients worldwide."
