Alphard Security builds on success

2014 has been a year of growth for Alphard Security, with the company expanding its operations by opening of a new Maritime Training Centre in Galle, Sri Lanka. The centre will be offering City & Guilds MSO 8269 Level 3 qualifications for prospective maritime security operatives under the management of Eamon Dolan. Eamon has a wealth of experience as a maritime security instructor and is currently completing a Masters in Maritime Security.

“The commencement of training in this accredited training centre allows for a best industry practice approach to maritime security training and reflects the commitment which Alphard Maritime demonstrates to its clients and additionally providing our MSOs with the necessary tools of the trade,” Dolan said.

The new offering comes at the end of a year of expansion for the company, firmly cementing its place in the sector with the opening of new offices in both the UK and Dubai.

UK Director, John Howells, said:
“Our UK office was a natural extension to best support the maritime industry. This, combined with our offices in Dubai, Mumbai, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Nigeria, allows Alphard to have a truly global reach whilst allowing us to support our UK personnel, European clients and client companies with worldwide fleets.

“Alphard is uniquely run by commercial Master Mariners and security specialists, and the last year has shown this to be something the maritime industry has been lacking to date. We are now the world’s 3rd largest PSMC, with over 160 clients worldwide, including major oil companies. Alphard is fully accredited and certified with all major bodies, P&I Clubs, Insurers, Port Authorities and Flag States and is certified to ISO PAS 28007. We do not over-commit and, when we say we will deliver, we will deliver. This, combined with our professionalism, knowledge and reputation is a highly successful mix and leaves us well placed for the coming year.”
