Westminster announces Strategic Alliance with the International School for Security and Explosives Education (ISSEE)

Westminster Group Plc is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic alliance with the International School for Security and Explosives Education (ISSEE).

ISSEE offers a wide range of search, security and counter terrorist training. ISSEE’s core competence is in providing world class explosives courses including Explosives Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Improvised Explosives Device Disposal (IEDD) to international military, police, government and commercial organisations.

ISSEE is located in the UK in 55 acres of grounds containing classrooms as well as indoor and outdoor practical training areas and has the necessary permissions to conduct on-site live explosives training and demonstrations.

ISSEE were the first security, search and explosives training organisation in the world to bring City and Guilds of London Institute academic awards to security operators. As the first and best school of this type they are recognised as setting the industry standard against which other training organisations around the world are judged.

Under the strategic alliance, Westminster will promote ISSEE’s range of services through Westminster’s extensive network of international agents, offices and clients, and ISSEE will promote and utilise Westminster for product and technology solutions.

Commenting on the alliance, Professor Alan Hatcher, Chief Executive of ISSEE said:
"This is a very exciting opportunity for both of our organisations which I believe will not only enhance our offerings to our global clients but will also add value to both of our companies".

Further commenting on the alliance, Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of the Westminster Group said:
"I am delighted to enter in to this strategic alliance with ISSEE and believe a lot of synergies exist between our two companies which we can exploit for mutual benefit.

"ISSEE are leaders in their field of search, security and counter terrorist training and this fits very well with Westminster’s broad range of anti terrorism & risk reduction, defence and homeland security solutions. We have a common target customer base of governments and governmental agencies, non governmental organisations (NGO’s) and major corporations worldwide.

"By adding ISSEE’s range of professional training services to Westminster’s broad portfolio of services, I believe we have a unique opportunity to provide our clients with an outstanding turnkey solution of products, systems, solutions and training."
