Next Level Security

“We have experienced a massive increase in business and are really going places with the backing of NPIF - FW Capital Debt Finance.”

Derek Laird, Managing Director, Next Level Security Services 

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

Headquartered in Stockton-on-Tees, 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.

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 

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
