Local firm fly in to top three percent of UK security companies

FAMILY-run security firm, CDX Security Group recently landed a spot in the top three percent of the sector’s UK firms, following a successful audit from the Security Industry Authority (SIA).

The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS), commissioned by the SIA, aims to protect the public and employees within the security industry through a framework that sets, improves, and monitors operating standards. Firms are marked against seven criteria and must consistently demonstrate excellent service delivery and sound business management.

Warrington-based CDX Security Group, who have been in operation since 2012, demonstrated excellent levels of compliance in all areas and scored an impressive 131 points out of 145, placing them in the UK’s top three percent security firms, a two percent increase on their 2021 result. The audit included interviews with key senior team members, front line security teams and customers to understand the processes and procedures in place and to gather any feedback.

Elliot Roddy, Group Operations Director at the firm, said of their recent success: “We’ve continued to work really hard to ensure our working practices are second to none, and to gain a 2% advantage on our 2021 audit is fantastic news for CDX and our customers.”
“We pride ourselves on the standards of our team and our company values, and achieving these scores is testament to the team’s dedication to CDX. With the launch of CDX Aviation, fantastic audit results and a win at the Warrington Business Awards all achieved in 2022, we’re looking forward to what 2023 has in store.”

Areas of good practice highlighted in the audit included the internal audit procedure put in place by CDX Security Group to score themselves against the ACS standards, any scores below the highest mark are identified and improvements outlined, their community initiatives for promoting careers in the security industry via local schools were also highlighted by the audit.

CDX Security Group was founded in 2012 and is a family run business based in Birchwood, Warrington. They recently launched their Aviation service focussed on airport security and related services and were successfully announced as Large Business of the Year at the Warrington Business Awards this October.
