Glasgow University Union Chooses SGL Security

Following a retendering process, the historic GUU selected its long time security partner SGL, continuing their 20 year relationship.

One of its very first contracts, the GUU holds a special significance for SGL. The two organisations have been working in collaboration for more than two decades - almost a fifth of the time the GUU has called 32 University Avenue building home.

Established in 1885, the GUU is one of the UK's oldest student unions. Following its multi-million pound development project, it is now the largest leisure venue in the city.

SGL is proud of the relationship with the GUU and Glasgow University which has been developed over the last 20 years. In this time, we have had the amazing opportunity to work with the University, supporting both of its unions, and safeguarding generations of its excellent students.

As one of our company's very first contracts, the GUU is a very special client for SGL. We are delighted and proud of the GUU management and board's decision to retain our company as their security partner.

In a retendering process, competing against other providers and their promises can be more challenging for incumbent suppliers. Thankfully we were able to showcase the strength of our twenty year partnership with the GUU and the many years of success and growth we have shared.

Most of all, we are extremely grateful to our excellent people and the quality service they continue to deliver.

Peter Nokes, SGL Operations Director

The experienced management team has supported the historic union as it has hosted safe and enjoyable Freshers' Weeks, Daft Fridays, and every Thursday night Hive - entertaining the students of the GUU with its state of the art club facilities.

SGL has a unique understanding of how the institution conducts itself and will continue to offer a bespoke service to GUU, supporting its future successes.
