Dow Corning – Security Services

The Challenge

Reliability of service is a key issue for all our clients. They need to know our staff will be onsite and the security service is totally dependable.

This is of particular importance to our clients with high security sites. In addition, due to the nature of the site, MSS provide a security first response service to Dow Corning that requires specialist training.
