Croydon-based security firm bags Crystal Palace FC partnership

A South London family-run security and construction company has partnered with Crystal Palace Football Club.

JAR Site Solutions’ links to the Premier League side enables the business to inform more than 25,000 supporters of their services every matchday.

JAR Site Solutions provide security personnel to various events, office spaces, and construction sites nationwide, as well as operating as a labour agency for temporary construction staff.

Founder of the business, Jon Riches explained why becoming a Crystal Palace Business Club member held an appeal: “We’re based in Croydon so we’re only a mile down the road from Crystal Palace.

“We do a fair bit around the community. It’s a matter of keeping our profile high and making sure people know who we are.

“There’s several thousand people at each football match, so having our logo flying around each home game at Crystal Palace is always helpful, and it being a local club as well. It’s definitely something we’re keen to continue.”

Formed by Jon and Alisha Riches in August 2017, the Crystal Palace Business Club provides local companies the opportunity to experience high-level exposure through its multi-layered digital communications system.

Currently sponsoring a local rugby team, as well as supplying stewards to both West Ham United and Fulham FC, the company’s Business Club membership expands JAR Site Solutions’ growing sport portfolio.

Jon Riches added his take on the wider benefits of JAR Site Solutions’ association with the Football Club, concluding: “Alisha and I, we were working for another company and we decided we wanted to do this for ourselves.

“We set up JAR Site Solutions and a lot of our clients moved across with us because of our reputation and how long they’d been working with us.

“We’re both licensed security operatives ourselves, so we work out on the ground with our teams on a lot of the jobs.

“Being able to say we’re linked with Crystal Palace, it’s a well-known club, a well-known brand. It’s almost like saying Crystal Palace see value in us, and if they see value in us, then everybody should see value in us, as well.”
