Advanced Security is New Zealand’s largest dedicated corporate and industrial electronic security provider, with many high-profile corporate and government clients.

It’s great to have the addition of Nigel and his team join the Advanced Security Group business and we are excited about the prospect of growing this region. We see excellent alignment between our businesses, including company culture, commitment to service delivery and an aspiration for innovation that we believe will serve our customers well into the future”.

Nigel Reid of Nelbay Solutions added “We are excited to move forward. It is great to have more support for the business and we are excited to keep providing a high level of service to our existing clients and to keep growing the clients we service in the Nelson region”.

Parent company TPT Group acquired Auckland based IT company Sentinel Technologies in late 2017 following a string of other acquisitions around New Zealand including Concord Security in 2016, Struthers Electronics & Security in 2014 and Systems.Com in 2010. The company expects to make a further acquisition announcement late August.

Advanced Security has been recognised through numerous awards and received accolades through a number of external audits including that of the New Zealand Security Association with Gary Morrison, CEO Stating, ”It is our opinion that Advanced Security Group operates the appropriate standards and in compliance with, or above the NZSA codes of practice.” The ISO accredited business also achieved 96% with a recent SiteWise external audit.
