Who we are

ESG Security is the UK’s oldest, family owned, security services provider

ESG Security was established in August 1988, in Solihull, by its current Managing Director, David Hoey. After leaving the Royal Marine’s David began his security career in 1987, working as a consultant for Group 4 Falck, on many prestigious UK government contracts.

At the time the provision of private security services, was very much in it’s infancy, with only a few hundred companies in the industry. Many of these companies fell short of expectation, and so David took this opportunity (a risk), to establish ESG Security as a more personal, transparent, and professional company.

Today ESG Security is still a family-owned business, and has provided security services to corporate clients for over 30 years. David’s emphasis for ESG Security has always been about delivering a consistent, high quality service and winning contracts on advantageous terms.

Over the course of the last 30 years, we have developed a reputation for giving our all on projects, and providing customers with exactly what they need. Our clients recognise the professionalism of ESG Security, from the quality of our officers to our technical know-how.

Despite competing in a highly competitive industry, ESG Security has maintained a steady turnover, and we our one of few security companies in the UK to record a profit in our annual accounts. ESG Security has forged strong relationships with our clients, many of whom have been with us for 10 years or more. We have a portfolio of 300 customers, who benefit from our near 30 years of expertise in the security market.
