OF&A buys shareholding back from Sentry Group
June 2000, Security Services & Risk Management

Forensic investigation specialist, OF&A, has been acquired by its CE, Ockie Fourie, in a management buyout from leading security company, the Sentry Group. OF&A became part of the Sentry Group as part of the acquisition of Paramed last year.

"We have found that the highly specialised and confidential nature of our investigation business requires OF&A to be totally independent," says Fourie. "Our separation was amicable and we look forward to servicing all our clients as the leading forensic investigation company in South Africa."

OF&A which was established in 1982 provides companies and private individuals with assistance in matters ranging from complicated civil litigation to criminal cases.

The JSE-listed Sentry Group, one of the largest security groups in the country, comprises specialist security companies, Sentry Security Armed Response and Sentry Security Guarding.
