Next Level Security

“Having the NPIF funding in place is making a real difference to NLSS. We have experienced a massive increase in business and are really going places with the backing of NPIF - FW Capital Debt Finance.”

Derek Laird, Next Level Security Services Managing Director

Headquartered in Stockton-on-Tees, Next Level Security Services (NLSS) was established in 2015. It specialises in the provision of all aspects of security from security guarding, access control, key holding and response, CCTV, close protection operative and consultancy services.

NLSS secured a significant new contract worth £15million and a six-figure investment from NPIF - FW Capital Debt Finance, managed by FW Capital and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF).

The funding helped NLSS to fulfil the requirements of the new contract win with the creation of new jobs including local apprenticeships, and it cemented NLSS’s position as the one of the top providers of security services in the UK and its plans to drive future growth.

In June 2023, NLSS expanded again with the creation of 55 jobs after winning new work worth almost £5million. It cements further NLSS’s position as the one of the top audited providers of security services in the UK.

With offices in Leeds, Glasgow, and a new office in Warrington about to open, NLSS secured a six figure second round of funding from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance
