This year, the S2 Partnership celebrates 20 years of providing first class safety risk management services and software to the commercial property sector.  S2’s longstanding success within the sector illustrates the importance it places on developing partnerships and delivering seamless integrated services to commercial property clients across their portfolios.

Since 1999, the scope and extent of S2’s service offering has developed greatly, although the ethos remains the same – to develop flexible, strong and long-lasting business relationships with each of its clients. Company growth has always been carefully controlled and managed, ensuring that every client continues to receive the bespoke, quality service that S2 is so proud of delivering.

Stewart Smith, founder and chairman of S2 Partnership said “The 20 Year Anniversary marks an important milestone for the company and is an opportunity not only to look back on our achievements and the friendships we have made, but also to look forward to the opportunities ahead. Without the commitment and dedication of our employees, and the trust of our clients and partners, this celebration would not have been possible, and so I would like to say a warm and heart-felt thank you to everyone who has contributed to our growth and success.”
