Supporting our clients with growth through acquisition

by Mike Lloyd , Managing Partner at Haines Watts Swindon
Our team has been working with Swindonbased SSGC , one of the UK ’ s fastest growing security companies , to assist in the acquisition of Security 2000 Limited based in Bristol .
Security 2000 provides a range of security services across the South West including Bristol , Avonmouth , Clevedon and Wiltshire . As a result , SSGC has now added mobile patrols and key holding to the group ’ s service offering . The synergy between the businesses is already very much apparent with new services being available to both SSGC and Security 2000 clients .
David Stubbs , CEO of SSGC , said ,“ One of the main focuses of our acquisition drive is to acquire businesses which are looking for external backing to support their own growth prospects and that ’ s exactly the case with Security 2000 .
“ The company has an outstanding reputation for professionalism and service across a range of sectors and that ’ s an undoubted position of strength to build from .”
Security 2000 Director Richard Rees , said , “ Our client retention is probably the highest within the security industry and some of our clients have been with us since our first day of trading . We are delighted to be working with David and his team at SSGC .”
Through our work on this transaction , Haines Watts Swindon has been able to support SSGC with its ambitious growth plans and we are looking forward to working with David and the SSGC team on a number of future potential acquisitions .
