NPB Security recognised at 2022 AHA Supplier Awards

NPB Security has received two awards at the 2022 Bankwest Hospitality Supplier and Legends Awards hosted by the Australia Hotels Association (AHA) of WA. Held at Crown Towers Perth, NPB received WA’s Best Hospitality Service Provider and Best Small Bar Supplier.

The annual awards seek to recognise outstanding suppliers, promotions, products and services in the Western Australian hospitality sector.

Director David Barrett said it was an honour to receive these awards and that recognition must be shared with the NPB team.

“Without the resilience and dedication of our valued team members, NPB Security would not be the business it is today,” David said.

“We would like to recognise our staff for their loyalty and thank them for supporting the business during COVID-19 and beyond.”

“I’d also like to acknowledge our clients, suppliers, the AHA WA and our competitors, who pulled together and supported each other in many different ways throughout this challenging period.”

It is no secret that many industries faced extreme hardships during COVID-19, with local businesses in the hospitality industry facing complete closure. Director Scott Parry said NPB Security felt the flow-on effect of this and resulted in the company refining its operations.

“NPB had to reinvent its business model in order to respond to the new demands and business practices that have come into effect,” Scott said.

“Our operations have adapted to meet new needs and opportunities including expansion nationally into the South Australian market. Additionally, we expanded our footprint in a sectors such as retail, government, call centres and mobile patrols.”

NPB also recognises how difficult the COVID-19 period has been for their client’s. It was through working collaboratively and their ongoing support that the business has had continued success.

“Our clients have faced similar issues and learning how to effectively understand their needs and work on how we can provide the best solution has been critical in navigating a tough labour market,” Scott said.

NPB is proud to be this year’s Best Hospitality Service Provider and Best Small Bar Supplier and would like to thank the Australia Hotels Association of WA for this recognition.

NPB Security Partner with Perth Heat

NPB Security is delighted to partner with Perth Heat for the 2021/2022 Summer of Baseball.

Perth Heat was founded in 1989 as one of the Australian Baseball League’s foundation teams and have gone on to become one of the country’s most successful sporting clubs.

Providing security guards for games and events held at Empire Ballpark, Perth Heat CEO Steven Nelkovski said it is great to have NPB Security onboard.

“It’s a partnership that we’ve had for 10 years, and one we are extremely proud of,” Steven said.

Attending a Perth Heat game is a fantastic experience, with the perfect environment for the whole family.

“A day at the ballpark is unique, we have a nice American theme that runs through our game day experience,” said Steven.

“It’s different to other sporting events, for example if the ball goes over the fence and you catch it, you get to keep it.

“It is a wonderful family friendly environment and the menu is a little bit different too. We like to bring through an American style of flavour to replicate what you get at Minor League ballparks in America.”

It is shaping up to be a massive summer for the Heat on and off the pitch, as they look to go one step further after finishing runners up in 2020/21, as well as celebrating the successful history of the club.

“The Perth Heat will celebrate 70 years since our first Claxton Shield Championship win in 1952. We will have a lot of promotion around the success we’ve had as an organisation and celebrate all of the great champions of the club and the state,” Steven said.

NPB Security Director, David Barrett said he was proud to continue the long running partnership.

“This was one of our first sporting partnerships when we established NPB in 2010, so we are very pleased to continue the tradition this year. It is also fantastic to see what the club are doing in the sustainability space and we’re looking forward to seeing these initiatives in action.

Perth Heat has some ambitious goals with a desire to be Australia’s most sustainable baseball team. Their objectives include a 50% reduction in plastic by 2025; moving towards a 100% digital ticketing system and playing their games in Australia’s first renewable energy powered ballpark.

David said his company recognises the important role sport has in improving the health and wellbeing of all who participate regardless of age, ability, background or gender.

“NPB Security is a huge advocate for sport, understanding the significant and positive impact it has on the community. Communities are strengthened when we come together to play sport and build a sense of belonging.”
