Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC (April 12, 2010) – FOCUS LLC, a national middle market investment banking firm providing merger, acquisition, divestiture and corporate finance services, announced today that SecurAmerica, LLC has acquired Celadon Security Services and North Shore Security Services in a package deal. FOCUS represented SecurAmerica in the transaction.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, SecurAmerica is a privately-held company dedicated to providing premium contract security services. The Company has experienced rapid growth since its inception in 2005. These acquisitions will add nearly 300 employees to SecurAmerica’s staff while strengthening its class-A corporate, high-rise, manufacturing and residential complex presence in the Northeast.
According to John Adams, President of SecurAmerica, “These acquisitions will help achieve SecurAmerica’s 20 percent year-over-year growth goals. They also broaden our geographical reach and support our national strategy to be in major U.S. markets. As a result, SecurAmerica will be able to continue to pursue larger national accounts and contracts.”
Celadon Security Services and North Shore Security Services are providers of professional security guards, concierge and mobile services to a wide variety of properties in Massachusetts. Celadon and North Shore were attractive acquisitions for SecurAmerica given their Boston location. SecurAmerica can now extend its services beyond New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut and into the Massachusetts market. Additionally, Celadon and North Shore Security’s client base matches that of SecurAmerica, both providing high quality contract security services to high rise buildings, hospitals and residential communities.
According to Jonathan Wilfong, regional managing partner, “This transaction unites two strong firms with similar cultures and will create benefits of scale for SecurAmerica. The acquisitions were a natural fit.”
