The new brand brings together STANLEY Security – which Securitas purchased for a reported $3.2 billion in July – and Securitas’ electronic security operations division.
Securitas Technology employs approximately 13,000 people across the globe, 5,100 of which are field technicians. Around 500 colleagues are based in the UK.
The business provides bespoke design, installation, monitoring and analytics solutions across the video, access, intrusion, fire, and integrated systems spaces.
At the time of the purchase of STANLEY Security, Reuters reported how Securitas was looking to reduce its reliance on guarding services and increase its market share in the electronic security services sector.
“We’re thrilled to officially launch Securitas Technology and share with clients the tremendous value we bring as a security partner,” says Securitas Technology Global President, Tony Byerly. “We have three distinct advantages as a global provider: our people, technology, and knowledge. I’m incredibly proud of the organization we’re building together and the rich history and deep industry expertise that help make us a leader in the market.”
“A business focused on security technology to unlock even more value”
Adding to this, UK Commercial Leader, Vincent Poty says: “With Securitas Technology, we are creating something different and unique in electronic security. It reflects our sense of service, technology expertise and capacity for innovation, that together will support our clients in a changing world.”
“It is a hugely exciting time for all involved and we can’t wait to show people the potential Securitas Technology can help them to realize – as clients, as employees, and in many other capacities,” concludes UK Head of Electronic Security, Arthur Agnew.
