Established and Specialist Security Firm
- Longstanding business
- Excellent reputation
- Loyal client base
- Wide variety of services
- Relocatable opportunity
The business for sale is a reputable security firm, strongly established since 1997.
Offering a complete range of security services, the business has amassed a brilliant reputation within the field of security. Favoured for its professional approach to all kinds of protection delivered by fully trained staff, the company has experienced great financial growth and gained a loyal client base to match.
Experienced staff, many of whom have been with the business since or close to inception, are dedicated to ensuring the safety of clients, their customers and their businesses. Services are inclusive of the provision of security for office buildings, sensitive corporate locations, industrial and country estates, retail outlets and warehouses. Static, mobile or 24 hour security are all available, as well as events security and dog patrols.
Now only up for sale due to the current owner approaching retirement, a new owner has the perfect opportunity to take on a security business which can be expanded to increase profitability dramatically.
Clients consist majoritively of businesses and premises seeking reliable, high standard security, such as a local college and Haynes Motor Museum. Approximately 60 private clients are also provided with alarm response or key handling services. Most clients have signed 6-12 month contracts, receiving attractive discounts in doing so.
The business is unique in its field due to its competitive pricing, full professional liability insurance, as well as providing advice on how clients can minimise their security risk. A small fleet of vans is also included in the sale.
A professional and highly informative website details a comprehensive overview of services provided, their dedication to securing people and assets, as well as contact details necessary for clients to get in touch. Its Facebook page also ensures the contractor showcases the recognition it deserves through highly-speaking testimonials.
Appealing to a current security firm owner looking to grow through acquisition, or an interested buyer with experience of working in the security sector, a new owner could implement various initiatives to take advantage of its pathway for growth.
As the business is currently turning down work when approached due to a gap in the workforce, taking on more staff would enable this work to be completed. Relocation of the business would help to grow its area of operation further afield, potentially outside of Somerset, which would in turn increase takings. Increasing marketing through other social media platforms and proactively seeking contracts with commercial businesses would, in turn, grow its exposure and attract new clientele who require the business’s services.
The current owner is willing to stay on for a transitional period as required to bring the new owner up to speed with business operations.
- Can be home-based
