History

The History of PSS

PSS: Panad Site Services was founded in 1996 as a supplier of outsourced security services for industrial parks and large individual premises.

We seized on the opportunities created by the introduction of the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations in 1999 and quickly became specialists within the manufacturing and chemical sectors. This was because our teams who operated gatehouses and goods in and out services were the obvious focal point for major incident control protocols and we invested in our personnel to make them accomplished in relation to COMAH.

Contracts at many of the major industrial sites in the North West soon followed and our clients started asking for additional services. These were developed in cooperation with our clients to make sure the services they received were tailored to their exact requirements. As well as developing additional support solutions delivered directly by us, we also built up a list of third-party suppliers who provided services on our behalf with the full knowledge and confidence of our clients.

By 2004 we had become a fully formed Facilities Management provider.

The business continued to grow by staying true to our guiding principles and differentiating ourselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace by:

We broadened our offering to support industry sectors including:

In the following years we expanded beyond our stronghold in the North West and managed sites across the UK. In new geographic areas we have a policy of setting up regional support centres to ensure we provide a local service run by local people.

Testimonials

The decision to change security companies was brought about by the vision and utilisation of security manpower that the P.A.N.A.D. Management brought to the table, which was incomplete contrast to the normal vision of other ‘Security Companies’.


PANAD highlighted and recommended corrective actions to any issues… We recommend them as trustworthy and reliable and shall be using the company for our annual services.


The changeover from our previous contractor was carried out very smoothly, which was most pleasing…

I am happy to say that I am now able to ignore Security, safe in the knowledge that PANAD are looking after our premises.


It’s fair to say that [Panad Site Services] have always responded positively, providing staff when required and undertaking the additional security checks required for the current contracts on which we are working. All of these points have been short notice in the main, requiring your Operations staff to juggle your manpower to enable us to receive the coverage required.
