G4S Secure Solutions Wins CONSOL Energy Contract
G4S Secure Solutions is doubling its southwestern Pennsylvania footprint
From Pittsburgh Business Times, Feb. 11, 2011
After securing a new contract with CONSOL Energy Inc., G4S Secure Solutions (USA) Inc., the North American subsidiary of a British security firm, is doubling its southwestern Pennsylvania footprint.
The company is looking to hire 200 agents to provide security services to CONSOL’s corporate headquarters in Cecil and at its natural gas well sites and mines, according to Jim Moran, general manager for southwestern Pennsylvania with G4S.
“This is taking us to a level that we are now a major player in this particular market — in southwestern Pennsylvania — which we have not been before,” Moran said.
Currently, G4S’s Moon regional office has about 250 employees who oversee security operations for health care, manufacturing and technology companies, among others. The company typically hires former military and former law enforcement personnel.
The CONSOL contract is the firm’s fourth foray into the energy sphere, something Moran has been pursuing for more than a year. Some gas and mine locations will be staffed around the clock, others during nonbusiness hours, and some will be monitored with motion detectors and cameras.
