Being Different in the domain
Since the group is operating two businesses, one is Security and another one is Facility in Property Management business. On the security side, they are probably the only security company which is Non Unionized and also have no political alignments. But most importantly what differentiate Peregrine Guarding from other and made it a market leader in 20 years is correct intake and training of people; finding the right people and training them. Second is Supervision. Third is Communication, divided into two sides first is communication between the management and its employees and second is between the company and their clients.
On the facility management side, the greatest differentiator is that they do not outsource anything. Starting from managing of service, housekeeping, ground transportation everything they do of their own to get a better control over the quality of services that they deliver
