    Case Study: Almac Group

    CCTV Monitoring & Maintenance, Manned Guarding and K9


    The Almac Group is an established contract development and manufacturing organisation that provides an extensive range of integrated services globally to companies within the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors. The services range from R&D, biomarker discovery and development, API manufacture, formulation development, clinical trial supply, IXRS technology through to commercial-scale manufacture. Almac is headquartered in Craigavon, Northern Ireland with operations in the UK, Ireland, across the US (Pennsylvania, North Carolina and California) and in Asia (Singapore and Tokyo).



    The Almac Group required an intense yet cost effective solution to secure the general area of their office blocks and manufacturing plant at their global headquarters in Craigavon, encompassing an area of approx. 54,600 square feet.
    Both offices and manufacturing areas required extensive monitoring to ensure maximum protection of machinery, assets and employees.
    The sheer size of the site meant that manned guarding alone could prove problematic. Therefore, Mercury were tasked to provide a solution that would cover all bases and ensure a fit for purpose security solution was in place.


    Mercury’s Solution

    Mercury completed a full survey of the site to determine the most effective solution was in place.

    Mercury Security and Facilities Management concluded that by utilising manned security alongside a technical solution of CCTV remote monitoring and maintenance we could ensure all areas were covered. As an added deterrent, Mercury implemented a team of K9 units to further protect the integrity of facility after hours.


    The Almac Group now have in place a complete and cost effective security solution which ensures full protection of the properties, assets, machinery and employees.

    “Given the nature of and sensitivities surrounding our operations, it is vital to ensure our site is secure 24/7. Mercury’s bespoke security solution has provided us with peace of mind guaranteeing our property, personnel and assets are secure at all times.”
