Who Are Panther Security?

Formed in 1990, Panther Security had a vision to build the leading independent security company in East Anglia, providing the highest quality, most cost-effective security systems for residential and commercial premises backed with expert customer service and maintenance.

With only one member of staff, this family business set out with the immediate goals of gaining prestigious NACOSS accreditation and building their client base.

Ambition, hard work and determination paid off with the NACOSS accreditation achieved within three short years. ISO 9002 certification followed in only 18 months. In 1995, Panther moved into commercial premises at Lexden House, Colchester, to cope with the success and rapid expansion.


1996 saw further expansion with the purchase of Safe and Sound Security in Chelmsford (another NACOSS accredited security company), thereby giving Panther a presence in mid-Essex. Indeed, Panther is continually on the look-out for appropriate security companies or contracts to purchase.

After a continued period of growth that saw client numbers spiral and staff numbers increase to 22, Panther bought the freehold to their larger, prestigious premises at the Peartree Business Centre, Stanway in 1999.

Reaching Success

By this stage, Panther was the largest and most successful independent security company in the Colchester area, which was reinforced with the acquisition of Crime Cure based in Ipswich.  The purchase of this NACOSS approved alarm company further strengthened Panther’s presence in East Anglia.
