Ambush Security Services and Enterprise Security & Data today announced the closing of a previously announced transaction to join the two companies together. The combination is creating one of Australia's largest Security & Communication companies – one that will deliver the most complete set of security and communication products and services to businesses of all sizes in every sector.
The combined company will launch its new name (Amentco) along with their new marketing brand at the beginning of the 2nd financial quarter. In the interim, as Ambush Security and Enterprise Security & Data work to integrate their operations, the two companies will continue to operate under existing names and brands.
“The close of our transformational merger will enable us to create a new force in the industry – a true change agent in the world of security and communications,” said Neil Eaton, chief executive officer of the new company. “Our combined organization will offer a comprehensive suite of end-to-end services and solutions ranging from strategy to tactical and everything in between, enabling organizations to rely on one trusted source for all their security and communication needs. We will work to deliver benefits to our customers and partners, enhance the career opportunities for our employees, and create value for our shareholders.”
Eaton continued, “Together, Ambush Security Services and Enterprise Security & Data will be able to do so much more for Australia than either company could have done alone. We look forward to leading the industry to find innovative solutions, and to helping security leaders, their teams, boards and customers more successfully achieve peace of mind.”
In 2014, Ambush Security Services and Enterprise Security & Data had combined total revenue of approximately $14 million. Collectively, the two companies have approximately 100 employees, have served more than 5,000 customers of various sizes across multiple industries, offer an extensive geographic footprint with 4 office locations across Southern Queensland, and have premium partnerships with all the leading security product manufacturers.
“After months of planning, we are excited to realise our shared vision of creating the nation’s premier security & communications provider,” said Graham Russell, Managing Director of the combined company. “I am excited to work with our new leadership team, and committed to the successful execution of our integration and our long-term strategy.”
The new, combined company has a highly experienced management team comprised of executives from Ambush Security Services and Enterprise Security & Data.
