A leading risk management consulting business has been acquired by Mitie, the UK security provider.

Mitie Security has expanded its service offerings with the inclusion of Linx International Group, a company that also provides technical and management training to the global industry.

Linx is formed of three service lines: PerpetuityARC, Tavcom and Linx Consulting.

With the acquisition, Mitie has confirmed that it will be able to further enhance its security risk analysis and intelligence capabilities, which combines ‘technology and exceptional people to meet the increasing customer need for a more sophisticated approach to security’.

The retail, corporate and aviation sectors share a customer base with both companies.

Linx Group has “extensive experience”

“As the UK’s largest security provider, we know the best way to create safe and secure environments is by combining the power of our technology with the deep expertise of our people, to deliver real time intelligence,” said Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, Mitie.

“With the industry continuing to evolve at high speed and new legislation on the horizon, in welcoming the Linx Group – and their extensive experience and expertise in delivering world class risk management, consulting and security training – to the Mitie family, we’re further developing our risk management offering.”

“Positive and exciting”

David Gill, Managing Director, Linx International Group added: “Mitie’s acquisition of the Linx Group is extremely positive and exciting for both Mitie and Linx International.

“Integrating Linx’s consulting and training expertise into Mitie’s intelligence-led security division will create an unrivalled service offering for clients.

“Linx’s extensive experience in fraud investigation, commercial malpractice and crisis management response will strengthen Mitie’s position in the marketplace.

“The accredited security management and technical training and vocational programs available through Linx International will supply much needed skills within the industry to meet ever changing future trends.”
