Foremost Security, the East Midlands-based provider of security guarding and industrial security services, has completed the takeover of Nottingham based security firm, Cerberus Facilities Management.
The owner of Cerberus approached the Director of Foremost back in July, explaining that they wanted to leave the industry, and after discussions about which sites Foremost would take over took place, negotiations were made. Foremost has secured 80% of Cerberus’ clients. This takeover will see Foremost’s market share develop across Nottingham.
Since the takeover in July, Foremost has seen significant growth in their client base and have secured work with Jeld Wen – Melton Mowbray, Cold Harbour Marine, Enva Waste Management, Lowdham Leisure World, Bunches, J McCann, Plastique, Sat Bains and Pro-log Fulfilment, amongst others.
Ben Spencer, who was the Director of Operations at Cerberus Facilities Management, said: “As a security solutions provider with over 20 years’ experience, we’re absolutely delighted to trust and hand over to Foremost. We know they’re always thinking of their clients’ futures and those who were previously with us, will be in very safe hands.”
Matt Prince, Sales and Marketing Director at Foremost Security, said: “The takeover was very smooth and really without any issues or concerns. We’re really pleased with how quickly we were able to move things forward. We are working with some very big national and international customers and have had some very interesting conversations about the working relationship moving forward with the potential of additional security work starting on the back of what we now provide.”
