Securitas acquires Oxford-based security solutions provider R&R Frontline Services

Securitas has announced its acquisition of R&R Frontline Services Ltd and R&R Frontline Services UK Ltd. As part of the Securitas Group, R&R Frontline Services Ltd and R&R Frontline Services UK Ltd will continue to deliver local, professional security services to clients while transitioning to operate under the Securitas brand during 2019.

The acquisition of R&R Frontline Services Ltd and R&R Frontline Services UK Ltd strengthens the portfolio of Securitas UK as it continues to build its electronic alarm surveillance services and mobile security services for SMEs across the UK as part of the company’s Vision 2020 strategy.

Danny Williams, Securitas UK’s managing director for the North and the South West, explained: “The security of the future will rely on people, technology and knowledge to ensure clients receive value-driven and predictive total security solutions. These acquisitions offer an exciting opportunity for Securitas to strengthen and expand its protective services and customer offer, creating value for clients, employees and shareholders alike while at the same time supporting our strategy for future growth.”

Richard Powell, managing director at R&R Frontline Services Ltd, responded: “Securitas is a leading global player in the security industry and this a great opportunity for both our officers and our clients.”

Securitas operates in 58 markets worldwide. In the UK, no other security provider layers six protective services – namely on-site, mobile, remote, electronic security, fire and safety and corporate risk management – to offer intelligent total security solutions for its client base.
