Pinkerton acquisition extends its security offering

21 February 2017

Security consulting services provider Seccredo AB, based in Stockholm, Sweden, has been purchased by Pinkerton for an undisclosed sum.

Following its acquisition, the company has been rebranded as Pinkerton, with the purchase intended to boost its new owner's northern European operations.

Seccredo was established in 2004, the year of the Southeast Asia tsunami, with the company offering emergency support to Swedish citizens by locating missing relatives.

In addition to individual businesses and government agencies, the company's clients also include organisations from a number of industries, including banks, securities and insurance companies.

The acquisition and rebrand has included the opening of new offices in Stockholm.

Services will be offered to clients including complex consulting and security solutions in all sectors, such as background screening, due diligence, business intelligence, crisis management, computer forensics and risk analysis.

Sister operations in Latvia and Poland will also be brought under the Pinkerton brand, the statement said.

The latest Pinkerton acquisition follows that of the Polish IBBC Group towards the end of 2016, as the company seeks to extend its reach to all areas of mainland Europe and Northern Eurasia.

Its expanding presence is described as further strengthening the global Pinkerton network of experts to identify new and emerging threats that potentially prevent businesses from accomplishing their objectives.
