Capricorn Security Group were proud principle sponsors of the 2018 YAFTA awards at the Royal College of Music in Leeds last Friday.

It was great to see so many young up and coming talent, many of which we're sure will be working on sets and in studios protected by Capricorn in the future.

It was also a real pleasure to spend some time with acclaimed Director Ian Bevitt of Coronation Street and Emmerdale (to name but a few) and with whom we have been working side by side for almost 2 decades.

Big thank you to Charlotte Armitage Head of YAFTA, for giving us this opportunity and well done for helping contribute to the continuous flow of talented people who will help our industry continue to grow in the Yorkshire and North West Regions.

The next phase of the Capricorn Journey….

We're really excited that our purchase of the iconic former Nat West Bank in Newton Heath has completed and it will soon be the new home of Capricorn Security Group’s Manchester Operations.

By utilising the previous occupier’s bank vault, we will be able to offer customers state of the art Key Holding facilities, and the premises will also provide a fantastic new working environment for the Head Office team

Over the next couple of months, the building will undergo extensive renovations inside and out and will be totally unrecognisable from how it looks now. It’s a massive project to undertake in such a short period of time but the effort will be so worth it to see the transformation.

Due to the continuous expansion of the business we’ve simply outgrown our current premises and so everyone in the team is excited about the relocation

See below for some 'before' pics to give you an idea of the scale of the project...
