ET | Source:Gunnebo AB
The Gunnebo Security Group has signed an agreement with the owners of Mexican
security services company, Diseños Inteligentes de Seguridad S.A de C.V
(Dissamex), to acquire all shares in the company. Dissamex provides nationwide
electronic security services to the banking, retail and industrial sectors.
The acquisition adds to the small service operation Gunnebo established in
Mexico in 2010 and gives the Group a market-leading position within electronic
security services to banks.
“The acquisition of Dissamex is in line with Gunnebo’s strategic agenda to move
the Group’s point of gravity and focus on growth markets within the security
sector,” says Gunnebo’s President and CEO, Per Borgvall. “As the second largest
economy in Latin America, Mexico is clearly a very interesting market for us and
this acquisition will allow us to create a strong platform in the country from
which to introduce other offerings from our portfolio of security solutions.”
Dissamex was founded in 2006 and has an annual turnover of 90,000,000 Mexican
pesos (45 MSEK). The company has a solid customer base including leading Mexican
and international banks as well as other financial institutions.
Dissamex will be consolidated in Gunnebo’s accounts from September 1, 2014 and
will have a positive impact on the Group’s result for the year.
