Vertas bolsters security offer with Oakpark acquisition

Submitted by Amelia O'Hanlon | 22/08/2017

Vertas Group has bought Colchester-based Oakpark Security Systems Ltd; expanding and strengthening its current security service offering.

Oakpark, the multi-million pound business operates over 500 contracts across East of England and specialises in a range of security-related services; such as mobile patrols, CCTV monitoring, keyholding, secure locking and unlocking, resilience consultancy and much more.

Oakpark has an excellent track record in managing a range of security contracts bespoke to the client, whatever their size or line of business. Oakpark has also recently started operating a cleaning division which will help strengthen the Group’s current cleaning service offer in the area.

The Vertas Group now owns Oakpark and with its expertise will allow the group to expand further and improve its offer in the security market, bringing benefit to its current and future clients.

Ian Surtees, Vertas Group Limited’s CEO, said:

“We are thrilled to be able to further grow our security services in the region. Oakpark has years’ of experience in managing the security for a range of clients and will bring a wealth of knowledge to the Vertas Group.

“This new arrangement will put us on the front foot when bidding for upcoming security contracts; with a bespoke offer suited to the client’s requirements and budget.

“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of Oakpark’s staff and clients to the Vertas Group; we look forward to meeting and working with you over the coming weeks and months.”
