Security acquisition continues Kingdom expansion drive

12 April 2018

Kingdom has announced that it acquired the contracts of Wiltshire-based Keyline Chartered Security on 1 April for an undisclosed sum.

Established in 1977, Keyline provided a range of services that included manned guarding, mobile, key holding and response options to clients around the UK.

No further details concerning the deal were revealed in yesterday's announcement, other than that the purchase is part of the Kingdom "strategic expansion plans".

Kingdom chief executive Terry Barton said: "Strategic acquisitions have always formed part of our growth strategy and Keyline was an opportunity to further strengthen our UK security foothold as well as strengthening our sectors such as the NHS and distribution."

He further stated that the company looks forward to "meeting and working in partnership with all our new customers".

Established in 1993, the company is an independent provider of FM, security solutions, environmental protection and recruitment to the UK, Ireland and South Asia.

It employs more than 6,000 people and has a turnover in excess of £106m.
