A family-run firm is fast blossoming into a UK industry leader - after crowning their first full year of operating with an invite to share in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Royal wedding.
JAR Site Solutions was formed by husband and wife team Jon and Alisha Riches in August 2017, drawing on Jon's 20 year experience in security and construction projects.
But 2018 beat all their expectations as they ended the year by forming an official business partnership with their local Premier League football club, Crystal Palace FC.
And they were proud to be asked to assist officers on 19th May with a 50-plus strong security team supporting Thames Valley Police near WindsorCastle.
After setting up the previous autumn and joined on the exciting journey by many loyal clients, JAR Site Solutions started 2018 working at the London Stadium on a West Ham match, along with concerts at The O2 and a Private Boat party in Central London.
Founder Jon Riches, 46, said: "From there, we never looked back.
"Events came in thick and fast throughout the year, with the highlight being stood in Windsor with over 50 staff, supporting the Police at Prince Harry's Wedding.
"It was amazing and we as a company felt honoured to be there and help ensure a safe and enjoyable day.
"It was a hugely proud moment for all of us and experience I know my staff will never forget."
However, the firm have also been thrilled to work on many smaller events across London including the 'Jerk Cookout' in Croydon, their local town.
That project typified the close working, idea-sharing relationship the firm always encourage with all their clients - big or small.
Explaining the process on that job, Jon revealed: "Work started early, with meetings with the organiser to ensure we completely understood what he wanted us to achieve.
"Risk assessments and an event safety plan quickly followed, along with various SAG (Safety Advisory Group) Meetings.
"Eventually at the end of July the eagerly awaited event day came - but typical for the UK at the height of a scorching summer the heavens opened!
"As we plan for every eventuality this failed to deter our security team who clicked into action.
"We deployed several SIA (Security Industry Authority) staff and safety stewards on gates, checking tickets, bags searching etc, along with a five-man response team patrolling the inside of the event footprint.
"We are delighted to say the event was a huge success for the client and hats off to them for creating a wonderful day, and our staff for ensuring a friendly and safe atmosphere."
Both Jon and wife Alisha ar licensed security operatives themselves, so love working on the ground leading their teams on many of their jobs.
Jon added: "We ended the year having over 200 staff managing partygoers at the London Eye seeing in New Year at the live, televised firework and music event.
"It was a great way to end our first full year and felt fitting that of course we were both there on the ground as usual, working alongside our crews.
"We can't wait to expand the business further and explore new opportunities with our amazing clients in 2019!"
