An East Yorkshire security company is expanding with a new base at The Deep Business Centre in Hull.

Security Direct UK supplies specialist shutters, doors and grilles to corporate and domestic customers across the UK.

The company is set to establish a presence at The Deep Business Centre in Hull, in addition to its head office in Beverley.

Matthew Yeo and his brothers Alex (installations director) and Ollie (sales director) took over the company from their father Stuart in March 2010 and operated from a base in Leeds.

But as keen polo players the three were lured to Beverley to play at clubs in Tickton and Market Weighton and they took the business with them, investing in more sophisticated products and building a team of seven to look after a client base of household names.

Matthew Yeo said: "We're based in East Yorkshire yet most of our work is across the country, with 60 per cent of orders coming from the London area and a strong client base served by our people in Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham.

"But we've watched how Hull has grown since its year as UK City of Culture. There has been more investment and development which is good for our business and expanding to The Deep will raise our profile.

"We've moved on a lot from those early days of window bars and our work is much more specialised now. A lot of it is online, which helps us to keep costs down, and our aim in year ten is to keep growing and maybe recruit one or two more people. We'll also continue to build our reputation by doing a good job because the big brands we work with only give you one chance."
