Empire Security to Securiplan plc

Securiplan has bought out retail guarding specialists Empire and the Midas Security Group.
Guarding contractor Securiplan has bought out £12 million-turnover Empire Security and the Feltham-based Midas Security Group as part of a concerted bid to gain significant market share in the retail sector. As a result of the deal, the Securiplan Group now boasts a combined annual turnover of £60 million.

The short-term plan is to integrate Empire and Midas within the Securiplan business, forming a specialist retail arm – likely to be called ‘Securiplan Retail’.

Set up in 1992, Bristol-based Empire Security’s 1,200 officers watch over branches of B&Q, Homebase, the Co-op and Mothercare as well as several prestigious sites owned by a number of recognised Blue Chip companies.
