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.

Based on our experience I can recommend P.A.N.A.D. and their services to companies with similar needs.


PSS carried out security services on our £9million new hospital construction Contract … until it’s completion.

PSS is a professional and reliable company; the Security Operatives were conscientious and dedicated members of the site team.

PSS have proved to be flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances and we would not hesitate to use them on future contracts.


The standards promised by the PANAD management team have all been fulfilled. The security cover from the on site security team is of the most professional we have come across in many years. This and the quality of back-up provided by PANAD is something we have not seen before from other contract security companies.
