GGL Security, an international security company with headquarters in Limerick City, has announced its acquisition of the security business of Securikey Ltd, a company also based in the Mid West of Ireland. The acquisition gives GGL the ability to expand its customer base in the region and provide customers with a greater service offering.
“This acquisition combines the power of GGL’s established security services, innovation and technology, with Securikey’s quality and extensive service provision within the security sector,” said Derek Tobin, Managing Director, GGL Security.
“By blending Securikey’s local services with our existing customer base and our technology driven International Monitoring Centre, we believe we are creating an unmatched offering that will provide a complete security solution to domestic and commercial customers alike. This synergy combines a strong presence on the ground with a high end monitoring and command centre offering electronic installers across the Mid-West and Nationwide a robust flexible solution to assist in monitoring their connections and offer a wider solution to their end users.”
Securikey Ltd was formed in 2001 to meet the growing demand for high caliber security personnel. The security business, which includes on-site risk management officers, has grown in this time to become the approved provider of security services to government, financial, local authorities and multi-nationals nationwide.
“Everyone in the Securikey business is excited about the future as part of an organization as strong as GGL Security,” said Securikey Managing Director Patrick Keogh. “We are looking forward to continuing to provide our customers with the best possible solutions to their security needs and this union will allow for this.”
With this acquisition, GGL Security will increase its direct workforce in Ireland by 15% securing the existing jobs in Securikey as a result. GGL also provides security management services in the UK, the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa and the USA and operates extensive logistics security services throughout mainland Europe.
