Commenting on the award, ESS NX Chairman, Paul Campbell said: “Being recognised by IIP in such a positive manner is testament to the continued efforts and quality of ESS. Many staff have been with the Company for a significant number of years, thus the award only crystallises my view that this is a great place to work.
ESS previously gained ISO 9001, NSI Gold and Safe-T-Cert accreditations which demonstrate rigorous and constant commitment to security, quality and safety, ESS has always taken an ethical approach to business with a focus on staff development and an expanding global footprint.
These are exciting times for the business as ESS moves into an increasingly digital and cyber security focused sphere. The challenges for home and business security have never been greater, however, just like all those years ago when ESS started out, ESS is extremely well equipped to deal with all modern aspects of security.”
