24/7 Security Services has acquired Security Management Consultants (SMC). 24/7’s MD, David de Lima explains that the two companies have a long history of working together on numerous projects in the residential and education markets. Given 24/7’s focus on service delivery and the positive feedback SMC has received from clients over the years, the companies decided that joining forces was the best way forward.
The acquisition will see 24/7 establishing a new division focusing on estates and schools, which SMC’s Brian Sharkey will head. While there are many companies serving these markets, markets that are steadily growing, few of them are able to offer a holistic solution along with the drive to manage them effectively.
SMC’s operations manager, Marinda Hartzenberg, will join 24/7 as operations manager to ensure the smooth running of the company’s security solutions.
With the addition of SMC’s skills and experience, De Lima says 24/7 will now be able to offer enhanced services to the estate and school markets. This will include everything from risk assessments through to integrated technology installations, and the management and running of the security operation.
While growth through acquisition is not a focus of 24/7, De Lima says if opportunities to expand the company’s market do arise, he would consider them.
The merger is already in effect and the combined companies have hit the ground running.
