Market leader moves Austrian headquarter to "Wien-Erdberg"
| 11 March 2009
The Swedish Securitas group employs 240.000 people worldwide. In Austria the security service provider is represented for more than 10 years now. The Austrian headquarter has been shortly transferred to the 3rd Viennese district and offers special prices to neighbouring companies: the first ten companies in the 3rd district contacting Securitas will be awarded with a free of charge security check.
The "St. Marx "area and "Erdberg" developed extraordinarily fast in office building projects. One major company after the other chooses this easily accessible location as their new operation base thus stimulating the district's economy. Erich Hohenberger, head of the district paid a visit to the new office building: "All new businesses are more than welcome in our district, however it is especially pleasant to have a market leader such as Securitas amongst our lodgers. Many jobs are created; the Securitas employees make use of the good infrastructure."
SECURITAS general manager Martin Wiesinger is fully satisfied with the new headquarter built by the Viennese property developing company - PORR Solutions: "The location is ideal: many employees make use of the nearby metro line U3; by car we are easily accessible through the "Erdbergstraße" or the exit "St. Marx". We dispose of a spacious underground car park, built for our visitors."
"However the novelty in our new headquarter is the state-of-the-art alarm monitoring centre. About 1.000 customer sites are monitored from here either through alarm-, fire- or video surveillance. All alarms are concentrated here, service breaks are reported and the response team assignments are coordinated." Besides the alarm centre the administration, area management Austria-East and the beat patrol are accomodated here. The beat patrol checks customer sites and buildings especially during the night at different intervals, controlling doors, windows, railings and car parks. A service that might be of interest to all neigbouring companies - especially because there are extra discounts for the 3rd district!
Wiesinger: „The first 10 companies from the district contacting us, will be awarded with a free of charge security check. Our security experts will check on your doors, windows, locking- and alarm systems and on your security organisation, analysing the soft spots and setting up a measure package - free of charge and without any obligations. Companies interested in such a check may contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org Header: Free Security Check 1030."
What else does Securitas offer for small- and medium sized enterprises in the district? Wiesinger: „Our mobile services, alarm systems and -response as well as our porter- and reception services are always well in demand, besides security consulting and security concepts as well as our event security or document solutions. The complete service portfolio may be found in the internet www.securitas.at.“
Another tip from Wiesinger: „People looking for jobs can surf our web for open positions and apply directly online. We are always looking for good personnel."
