Based in Dumbarton and with over 25 years of expertise, Alternative Systems Protection is a specialist in installing Access Control, CCTV, Barriers, Gates and Turnstiles, providing services to the public and private sector. Through a recent market and sales strategy refine, the business was experiencing steady growth and was in the position to take on an administration and assistant with a remit for marketing. West Dunbartonshire Working 4 U provided assistance in sourcing the right candidate for the job and by accessing the Council's Youth Employment Grant, Alternative Systems Protection was able to access the funding support necessary to grow its workforce.
Locally, Business Gateway has been working extensively with Dumbarton based sister company, 110 (UK) Ltd, which received assistance with its strategy development and action plan for growth. Of the support received, Charles Brown, Managing Director, said "the support and grant assistance received through West Dunbartonshire Council has been beneficial in enabling us to recruit quickly and find the right person who has slotted well into her role. Due to current market demands and the direction in which the business is growing, staff have the opportunity to develop their skills and experience further within the organization".
