Our Story From humble beginnings to industry leading enabling contractor
What's the story behind Panthera?

Scaffold Security Systems (SSS) was born

Neal James and his father Rob James started SSS with a clear strategy to deliver high quality security systems to protect scaffoldings at a rate not seen before in the market place.


The start of what’s now Panthera Hoarding

Driven by clients to provide additional security services a hoarding service was introduced.


First accreditations

After much hard work SSS became CHAS & SAFEContractor certified.


CCTV & Access Control

To enhance our product range CCTV & Access Control was introduced to
provide clients with a complete site perimeter security solution.


ISO Standards

Always client focused we took the decision to put our business through the UKAS audit process, after much hard work ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 shaped how we operate as a business.

Hello Panthera Group

Due to the rapid growth and expansion of services since SSS started in 2003 a new name was required to suit the new vision and strategy of the business.

New balls please

With a new name we needed new premises, Wimbledon SW19 became our HQ.


Temporary Site Services

Our business strategy continues with the introduction of a Temporary Site Services division.


2012 Olympics

We were proud to play our part in delivering the most successful games ever. We worked on four projects: Velodrome, Shooting Range, Eton Dorney and the BMX Track.


We celebrated 10 years of success

Happy birthday to us! From a man in a van we have grown to a successful construction site set-up company. We are still growing and have exciting plans for the future!


Panthera became first ever NSI Gold Scaffold Alarm installer

Leading from the front our Scaffold Alarm division collaborated with the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) to develop and introduce NCP115, the first ever Code of Practice for the Design, Installation and Maintenance of Scaffold Alarm System.

Achilles Building Confidence Approval

Recognised by the UK’s leading construction companies for supply chain pre-qualification.


First of our Framework Agreements

Proud to have secured our first framework agreement with a leading construction company.


Site Office & Welfare Fit-Out

Our clients asked and we delivered… A comprehensive site set-up service, managed and installed by our own labour teams. 


New Technology for the CCTV & Access Control division

We are in the cloud! To meet our clients ever growing demands we introduced cloud based solutions to enhance usability and improve security.


Two further frameworks secured!

Another two frameworks are secured. Confidence in Panthera’s ability to professionally deliver our site enabling services  continues to grow.

Utilising technology to deliver excellence

To support our planned growth strategy Panthera invested  for the future by introducing a tailored Integrated Management System. This allows us to manage our entire business operations centrally.


Moved to our new 1.5 acre premises

March 2018 saw us we move into our new premises in Redhill. This move was a critical part of our business plan and overnight increased our warehouse and yard space by over 70%.

Our Temporary Site Services division secures it largest contract to date!

Through heavy investment to build the divisions plant stock it has allowed us to be even more competitive on larger projects.

Introduction of EnviroHoard™

We believe in 5-10 years hoarding in the UK will not have any timber in its construction. As a result we are proud to have introduced the UK’s first 100% Reusable and Recyclable external hoarding system.
