National Eagle Security, Inc. (NES), a minority-owned firm, was chosen to provide security services for construction of the new Kaiser Permanente on 3780 West MLK Jr. Blvd (corner of Marlton Ave and Santa Rosalia Drive) until completion, via Turner Construction.
“Kaiser, wanted this to be 100% community-based hiring, and a vehicle to create jobs in the community,” stated sales and marketing director of NES, Samuel Scott. “We have always created community jobs [for] security, administrative, support, accounting, field supervision.”
NES is a non-union contract security organization originally established in 1992 as Mainland Best Security, Inc.
During Y2K, Wells Fargo Corporate Security granted security firm MBS with 99 Branch locations. After Y2K passed, they had over 65 branch locations. In 2001, G4S and Mainland Best Security were awarded a Southern California Edison contract. Then the project was transferred to National Group Security Inc. Mainland Best Security managed over 150 Bank of America locations. Then in 2014, the top managers joined as National Eagle Security, Inc.
Although the company ownership interests changed, the upper management team that has joined NES has perfected the way of doing business. NES prides itself in offering a unique history in Southern California considering its humble beginnings when the owner and managers worked as security guards before creating the company. This organization has tremendous experience in anticipating and meeting client needs. Some of their clients include Marriot Courtyard Hotel, Rite Aid Stores, Milk Studios, Hollywood Production Center and much more.
“We feel our responsibility is to go out, approach the major corporations and create jobs,” Scott said. “It’s our major thrust.”
The 90-million dollar, state-of-the-art four-story medical office building will groundbreaking took place in October 2015 and will have 60 world class providers on staff to treat Baldwin Hills Crenshaw members.
The new facility will also feature exam rooms with advanced technology, conference rooms, 2.5 acres of green space that will include a two-mile walk path, a farmer’s market, and an outdoor event space that will be available to local community groups.
Comprehensive services will include primary and specialty care services, including family/internal medicine, pediatrics, optometry ophthalmology, obstetrics/gynecology, health education classes, laboratory, pharmacy and mental health services. Scott is confident NES is up to the task and confident in the people that work for the organization.
“Our officers are well trained, we’re not going to put some novices out there,” said Scott. “We have field supervisors, our corporation pays them to go and check on our guys 24/7.”
The new Kaiser Permanente began a construction project of its new, cutting-edge, 100,000 square foot facility.
“I feel very humbled,” said Scott. “I’m very much so humbled.”
