Churchill Services Group has announced the acquisition of AOS Security Ltd in a bold bid to further enhance service capability and continue the strategy of establishing a stronger profile for the business within the UK’s security industry. In the wake of this deal, Churchill Services Group’s goal is to become a leading service solutions business with a combined turnover exceeding the £140 million mark.
AOS Security Ltd offers a complete suite of manned, mobile, covert and technical security services within the rail, construction, corporate, retail and healthcare sectors throughout the UK, with a predominant focus on the South East of England.
The business has consistently shown a desire to provide excellence, professionalism and a personalised service. It’s a philosophy which has seen the company build an impressive reputation and an equally impressive client list encompassing Transport for London, Chiltern Railways, the RNIB and ZSL London Zoo.
In making the transition to a single organisation, Churchill Services Group’s focus now turns towards working closely with AOS’ existing client base and providing a rewarding and stimulating environment for all employees.
Joel Briggs, Group managing director at the Churchill Services Group, explained to Risk UK: “A seamless transition for all clients and staff is the foremost priority as we look forward to a prosperous and exciting future. We want motivated and committed employees who feel included in the business to ensure that we can work, develop and grow together and, importantly, deliver a great service that adds value for our customers.”
Darren Read, managing director at AOS Security Ltd (and who now takes on the managing director’s role at Churchill Security Solutions following the acquisition) added: “This move is a natural fit for both organisations, strengthening services and market position even further. By uniting our shared security capabilities and a shared philosophy to make positive change within our industry, we can better serve our diverse and national client base.”
Churchill Services Group (which has just been ranked as one of the UK’s largest mid-market growth companies in The 2017 Sunday Times-Grant Thornton Top Track 250) delivers single services such as security, cleaning or catering, or any combination of service up to a complete bespoke multi-service solution in each sector throughout the UK, covering everything from local primary schools through to global corporate organisations.
