Benchmark International Advises on the Sale of Scan Alarms & Security Systems Limited to Secom PLC

Benchmark International are pleased to announce that a deal has been agreed for the sale of Scan Alarms & Security Systems Limited to Secom PLC.

As a privately owned company, Scan Alarms & Security Systems Limited pride themselves on delivering an exemplary service to all of their clients. Their business policies embrace the concepts of quality, perfection, progress and results. Each member of their team is committed to the attainment of these goals. Based at purpose-built premises in Mallusk, on the outskirts of Belfast, their highly skilled workforce is well placed to service clients throughout Northern Ireland.

“Since Scan Alarms was founded in 1980 we have grown and developed under the leadership and direction of my father, who ensured that our focus has remained on meeting customer needs through the provision of high quality and reliable security services. Our new association with Secom is a significant advance that will underpin our stability and capacity to provide professional security solutions in the years ahead,” said Leanne Place, Director of Scan Alarms & Security Systems Limited.

SECOM is a market leader providing customised security and fire solutions throughout the UK to homes, small and medium business, major high street brands, the Police and Government establishments, and the financial sector. They are a global organisation operating at every level and have made delivering exceptional customer service the ethos of their business and believe this has been the bases of their success and is contributing to their growth.

Speaking on behalf of SECOM, Managing Director Minoru Takezawa stated: “We have collaborated with Scan Alarms for many years in the delivery of security services in Northern Ireland. As our working relationship developed it became clear that our two companies shared a common philosophy of prioritising the provision of quality services to customers. This acquisition means that Secom will be much better positioned to offer comprehensive services to our growing blue chip national account customers in Northern Ireland.”

On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties every success for the future.
