Merger sees Synectics Security become major independent force in UK security integration
Synectics Mobile Systems (SMS) and Quadrant Security Group (QSG) have merged to form one of the largest independent security integrators operating in the UK today – Synectics Security.
Combining the on-vehicle expertise of SMS and QSG’s experience in providing electronic security solutions for complex, critical and heavily regulated environments, Synectics Security works with “best-of-breed” technology partners to offer “one of the most comprehensive product and service portfolios available”.
Based out of its Nottingham HQ, the unified business will continue to serve customers in the UK and Ireland operating in Public Space, Heritage, High Security, Banking and Finance, Critical Infrastructure and Transportation sectors.
“Pairing decades of experience dealing with the complexities of on-vehicle systems integration together with the expertise and specialist technical qualifications necessary for successful deployment of large-scale security and surveillance solutions – that creates a powerful combined capability”, said Iain Stringer, Managing Director of Synectics Security. “And not just in terms of transportation where there is clear opportunity and alignment of skills.”
“As we progress towards an ever more connected urban infrastructure, we are ideally positioned to help our customers in all the individual sectors we work in, leverage the opportunities ahead and work more effectively together. How? By offering field-proven, innovative, best-of-breed technologies from our merged wider partner portfolio, a pool of expert integration specialists and technical engineers with over 45 years’ combined experience, and access to a more comprehensive customer support team”.

When asked further about some of the new opportunities Synectics Security hopes to deliver for its customers, Iain added: “We have an exciting development around on-vehicle camera monitoring to announce very soon that will have significant implications for both new installs and retrofit on-vehicle projects. We’re also working hard to expand our offering in terms of cloud capabilities, analytics, intelligent software, and AI integration. We know that these are key areas for customers in all the sectors we serve.”
To gain an even deeper understanding of customer needs, the security integrator is currently conducting an extensive customer insight consultation. In addition to steering technical development and strategic partnerships, the information generated will be used to enhance and improve the customer experience.
As part of the launch, Synectics Security has also referenced a number of new projects and customers on the horizon. While these cannot be named at present, they include work for a major rail operator linked to COVID-19 requirements, a police force solution, and a large-scale military contract.
Commenting on Synectics Security’s continued focus on tailoring solutions to meet these new briefs and the needs of all its customers, Mark Pennington, Commercial Director at Synectics Security, said: “Both businesses always worked to a customer promise of selecting the right innovative technologies to deliver a tailored solution which meets each of their precise needs. That hasn’t changed. But thanks to our pooled resources, expert capabilities, and unified workforce, we’re in a much stronger position to deliver that promise and much more besides.”
