OCS acquires the Legion Group

12 August 2010

OCS Group UK Limited has acquired the business and assets of Legion Group plc and Legion FM Limited adding around 500 new clients to its existing security business.

The deal secures a future for 2,800 Legion staff and service continuity for customers following the company being placed into administration recently. The agreement sees OCS take control of all Legion assets including contract turnover in excess of £50m covering manned guarding and car parking activities throughout the UK.
OCS Group UK MD Martin Gammon said, “This acquisition forms a key part of our growth strategy and further develops the company’s capacity to provide total FM services. It is a clear demonstration of our determination to emerge from the current period of economic uncertainty in a strong position as a leading player in the FM market. As the UK’s longest established provider of security services, Legion Group is a very strong brand and enhances our offering within the security sector. The Legion Group has a professional and dedicated workforce with a highly respected reputation. We believe its history and values are a perfect fit with the OCS company ethos.”.
