IPM Group announced as headline sponsors of 2022 Exposed Awards
The award-winning security firm celebrates 15 years of working closely with the industry.
The end of 2021 marked a significant milestone within Sheffield based security firm, IPM Groups company history, IPM celebrated its 15th birthday! Starting from humble beginnings, providing door supervisors to a handful of the city’s mainstays to developing into a multi-faceted security firm and even, eventually, taking their hand to the industry themselves, with the likes of FirePit Rocks and Silversmiths restaurant.
As IPM Group look to the future, with the aim to celebrate another 15 prosperous years, they had thoughts about how the firm could celebrate the momentous occasion whilst encapsulating everything that IPM stands for. With the company’s evolution and most significant milestone in mind, IPM Group wanted to sponsor the prestigious Exposed Magazine Awards, celebrating the best in Sheffield and the continued relationship they have had with the city’s cultural and hospitality members.
Heading into their 16th year of operating, the milestone gives the group an opportunity to reflect on the incredible growth they have achieved. What started as a humble door supervisor and security guard enterprise headed up by CEO Rick Bailey, has evolved into an all-encompassing security and facilities management business, providing security solutions across a range of sectors and industries. Whilst the parent company grew, new ventures have been formed throughout a plethora of industries under the IPM umbrella.
IPM Group has grown year on year since its inception, they put this down to two simple facts: “Our willingness to embrace new technology and our openness to take risks and accept new challenges and opportunities.” During their growth they have always adapted with the times, introducing the use of state-of-the-art CCTV technology systems early on, this early adoption of modern CCTV, including, temporary systems, analytical detection systems and our purpose-built 24/7 monitoring station has proven successful and has now grown to be one of most successful divisions.
In more recent years, namely since the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, most businesses were shelling up, whilst IPM Group sought the opportunity to expand! IPM Group, invented, developed, and brought to market the inteliPod. The world’s first 100% touchless, innovative, fully automated, self-contained access control unit. Designed for smarter, faster, and safer access control solutions across multiple sectors including construction, border control, events, rail, and commercial sectors. Due to its purpose-built relevance, the inteliPod has proven a commercial success, it is currently deployed throughout the UK and has been involved with both a number of large-scale commercial projects and significant infrastructure developments.
Further ventures were conceived during the height of the pandemic, seeing IPM Group delving into the world of food. Restaurants including Silversmiths were forced to close due to lockdown which saw the birth of now popular meal prep service Revive Nutrition. The team of highly trained chefs from Silversmiths started putting their skills to use with meal preparation instead, focusing on dishes to help people meet their fitness goals or trying to improve their overall health.
Furthermore, IPM Group has also rapidly developed their facilities management services with local football club Rotherham United. What began as a new multi-year partnership with Rotherham United F.C to become the club’s new Stadium Facilities Management Partner and sponsor, rapidly developed into a brand-new branch of IPM Group. IPM Group training and recruitment. Since its launch, IPM Group training and recruitment has swiftly expanded, whilst bolstering the local economy, creating an enormous number of vacancies, and promptly recruiting over 500 stadium and events stewards. In just a few short months IPM has assumed responsibility to supply stadium stewards to many of the country’s largest sports and events stadiums.
The team at IPM Group would like to say “Thank you to all the amazing staff, clients, and partners we have worked with over the years. We will continue to strive for innovation and evolve with the times. We look forward to celebrating all of our achievements at the awards and sharing another 15 prosperous years with you all!”
