Manguard Plus, based in Naas, and Ireland’s largest privately owned Irish security company, has been shortlisted for three of the ‘Family Business Awards’ (Best In Customer Service Award, CSR Award and Professional and Business Services Family Business).
The company is celebrating more than 27 years in business. With a turnover of some €40 Million, employing 1,200 staff from offices throughout the island of Ireland, its meteoric rise is closely aligned with its Corporate Social Responsibility. In 2022 alone, Manguard Plus allocated a massive 24% of its net profit to charities and sporting organisations. Through local sourcing, the company also stimulates local business growth. The company is long recognised for being to the fore of professionalising the wider security industry in Ireland, working to ensure higher standards.
CEO of Manguard Plus, Sean Hall says, “We are delighted to be finalists for the Family Business Awards. At our core ,Manguard Plus is a family business. My Father, Sean Snr and I started our business over 27 years ago; we got huge support from my Mother, Margaret, and my siblings and this continues to this very day. I couldn’t have done it without them and really the huge success that Manguard Plus enjoys is down to my parents and wider family. We were brought up to work hard at whatever we did and respect people and this is the cornerstone of our company. We have even more family involved now given our expansion and ‘family’ really extends to the army of devoted and hard-working professional staff we employ. We couldn’t do it without working as a unit and the fact that we are finalists in three categories is a proud day for all of us. Our nomination serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to fostering a responsible, ethical, and socially beneficial business environment”.
“Employee empowerment is core to our ethos. We offer comprehensive staff training, leading to internationally recognised qualifications. As an example, two staff members are currently completing doctorates, fully funded by us, enhancing service quality and benefiting the broader community”.
“I would also like to thank our clients, many of whom have been with us since the formation of Manguard Plus. They share our ethos of loyalty and value the service we provide”.
