SINGAPORE - A unit of security solutions provider Secura has been awarded a $3.15 million contract by a leading global semiconductor company.

Soverus will provide security services for two of the company's purpose-built facilities in Singapore for two years.

Secura chief executive Paul Lim said it is the third major contract won in less than six months and its first contract in the semiconductor industry.

"The scope and nature of security guarding work is more complex in this industry due to the presence of purpose-built facilities as well as stricter theft prevention protocols to prevent theft of intellectual property. These require a higher level of expertise and care, which we are proud to be recognised for in the industry," he said.

"Given the heightened security risks regionally and globally in recent weeks, business and property owners are looking to strengthen their security infrastructure and systems, and we will continue to leverage on our track record to increase market share in the security guarding industry."

The latest deal follows a $4.9 million contract secured from the Australian International School and a $6.7 million contract with SBS Transit DTL.
