Allied Universal, a security and facility services company, finalises its acquisition of U.S. Security Associates (USSA), further building on its position in the security services industry. This acquisition includes Andrews International (including its Government Services Division and Consulting and Investigations and International Division) and Staff Pro.
As a result of the acquisition, Allied Universal is now an organisation with approximate annual revenues of $7 billion and over 200,000 security professionals. The acquisition also increases Allied Universal’s national presence and customer service capabilities and enhances Allied Universal’s presence in Canada. It also expands its footprint to Central and Latin America and the United Kingdom. With this acquisition, Allied Universal enters the consulting and investigations business as well as event staffing, enhancing its unparalleled and comprehensive security offerings to its customer base throughout its service areas.
“I look forward to working with the USSA team, which has evolved over the years as a leader in security. Together we will bring unprecedented value to all of our customers with an array of combined offerings and concepts,” said Steve Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Allied Universal.
Richard Wyckoff, who previously served as President and Chief Executive Officer of USSA, will act as a consultant during the integration process. Transition of U.S. Security Associates’ domestic operations is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2019.
