These acquisitions have also seen it move up Infologue’s rankings of the top thirty security companies in the UK. Sunwin is a provider of manned guarding services with approximately 640 security professionals, while MJF is a multi-disciplined business with an established client base spanning London and the home counties.
Managing director, Terry Barton, said the acquisitions should open up further opportunities for the company, pointing to Sunwin’s “fantastic customer base, operational structure and service delivery model”.
The acquisitions added £24.5m to its security services annual turnover in the first two months of 2015. This follows a pattern of sensible acquisition growth for the company, which has contributed to its position in The Hot 100, along with business retention and organic growth.
It claimed to have the “power of a national organisation” but supports its service provision from a network of regional support offices for effective penetration and efficiency.
The regional offices are spread across the UK to receive an integrated local management solution that is both “relevant and robust” while helping customers get maximum leverage from their budget.
Kingdom has become one of the largest private companies within its space, operating a comprehensive bespoke security service individually tailored to its clients’ needs. According to its website, Kingdom’s approach to security guarding is “radically different” and uses the best technology available to support customers.
Security personal services include gatehouse, patrol, CCTV, retail and store detectives, while some of the notable names to have used Kingdom include IKEA, Salford University, Cadogan Estates and British Airways.
