Fastest growing UK security company launches major acquisition drive

By Anita Jaynes on 12 April, 2022

The fastest-growing security company in the UK has announced a major acquisition drive as part of its continuing growth strategy. 

Swindon-based SSGC, which ranked 10th in the Infologue 2021 Top 45 UK Security Companies, is looking to partner with like-minded businesses as part of its vision to grow and develop among the biggest firms in the industry.

The company is focusing on acquiring businesses that may have struggled during the pandemic or are looking for external backing to support their own growth prospects.

David Stubbs, CEO of SSGC, said the business is looking to remain on its fast-growth path while in the process of demobilising Covid-19 testing sites across the UK, which it has been marshalling since the start of the pandemic. 

He said, “SSGC has performed tremendously well in the last few years and we have been fortunate to employ some of the best people in the business to help support this. 

“Our focus today has changed in line with the changing circumstances in the industry and we are now looking to acquire other businesses that we can support with our resources and ones that would really benefit from having our backing in the long run.”

Since its launch in 2014, SSGC has placed a huge emphasis on social value, consistently giving back to underprivileged communities and providing employment opportunities to all regardless of race, colour or gender. 

Its recently-launched acquisition drive cements its continued commitment to support those within the sector with the knowledge and expertise it has gained through the years. 

David, added, “SSGC has created more than 5,000 new jobs and retrained those from sectors which have had large job losses. 

“This includes a general veteran retraining programme and targeted recruitment from the hospitality and travel sectors.

“As we demobilise these test centres, our top priority is also to ensure that our employees have suitable alternatives available to them, and these acquisitions will certainly support our aim. 

“We look forward to hearing from more businesses and can’t wait to have more on board with us as SSGC continues to grow within the security industry in the UK.”
