Services in Safety (SIS) is an Antwerp-based specialist in safety solutions. SIS tells 50 employees and has an annual turnover of c. €6m. This acquisition will help Securitas Belgium grow its presence in the Safety area.
Over the last decade, Securitas gradually expanded its scope of activities to become an integrated solutions provider. In recent years, Securitas showed sustained growth of its safety training activities (firefighting…).
“The accumulated knowledge and the presence of SIS in the petrochemical cluster in the harbour of Antwerp are an ideal addition to our services and client portfolio. Today we definitely entered the market of ‘integrated security services’,” thus Sven De Smet, Area Manager High Risk and Safety.
“During the conversations with Securitas it became clear that we had the same vision about the future of safety. We will also foresee the continuity toward our clients, by keeping our whole team, and by keeping me as company director. The synergies that Securitas offers as a multinational, are without doubt interesting for our customers”, concludes former owner of SIS, Joël Goffart.
