NSI approved companies were well represented amongst the finalists and winners at the Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2022 which took place yesterday at the London Hilton on Park Lane. This prestigious awards ceremony, now in its 23rd year, celebrates the significant achievements and contribution of those working in the UK security and fire sectors.

NSI Chief Executive commented: “Many congratulations to all of this year’s winners and finalists including those NSI approved companies amongst them, who work tirelessly in keeping people, property and places safe across the UK.
