News: Booming security specialist secures loan


A Rotherham security firm that specialises in the protection of lone workers has received a £75,000 cash injection to deal with its rapid growth. Rocksure Systems Ltd, in Dinnington, needed extra working capital from SYIF to expand its infrastructure and employ more staff. The firm, which provides a safety monitoring service for professions including social workers and retail managers has increased turnover from £62,000 in 2006 to £768,000 in April 2008 and is expecting the figure to double next year. Ian Johannessen, managing director of Rocksure Systems, said: "We needed to make the transition from a SME to an established company with a strong foundation and with the loan we have been able to increase our infrastructure and staff base to cope with the growth. The Carrera Court based company was established in 2004 and now employs a team of 17 security specialists. David Ward, SYIF’s Investment Manager, said: "Rocksure has identified a niche in the security industry, taken its extensive service to the market and enjoyed incredible success in a very short space of time. "It is a wonderful example of entrepreneurship and the company is helping to give security and confidence to people in jobs that may be associated with certain occupational hazards."
