Prosero acquires HARDI-V in Denmark
Prosero is expanding in Denmark with its latest acquisition, locksmith HARDI-V – a full-service provider of technical security, located in Randers and Viborg.
HARDI-V began as a traditional locksmith in 1968. In 2000, Dan Christensen and Henrik Westergaard took over, and the business has enjoyed success ever since. These days, the firm is a total supplier of security products and services, with a broad customer base of private companies, property owners, public institutions, and industry. Many customers work with important infrastructure functions, such as healthcare and wind power. HARDI-V’s offer includes products and services in mechanical and electronic locks, door intercom systems, access control systems, door automation, intrusion alarms, and surveillance.
Strong demand, successful projects, and a broad range of satisfied customers have contributed to HARDI-V’s positive development, which has been characterized by significant growth and minimal impact from the global pandemic. The company has an excellent reputation in the industry and among its customers. HARDI-V is certified and approved by the Danish national law enforcement, insurance companies, and SKAFOR (the association of Danish non-life insurers). The company’s revenue for the past financial year amounted to DKK 35 million. HARDI-V has 21 employees working from two shops in Viborg and Randers.
“Right from the very first meeting with Prosero Security, we felt like this was the right move for us,” noted Dan Christensen, owner of HARDI-V, and Henrik Westergaard, CEO and owner. “By becoming part of Prosero, we can be confident that we can operate the business in the same way as before. In recent decades, HARDI-V has built a strong identity, and it’s important to us to retain the same spirit and vitality in the company. We’ll keep the same name, the same staff, and the same high level of service that our customers have come to appreciate during the past 50 years. We’ve always set great store in delivering services of the highest quality to all our customers – big or small – and developing long-term business relationships.
“Joining Prosero Security Group gives us great opportunities to stay updated on the latest technology in the security industry. We can also meet our customers’ needs as we continue our growth journey. But the collaboration means that we can do more than just follow developments in security – we can ensure that we can remain and become the preferred supplier of security solutions to current and new clients. For these reasons, we’re looking forward to becoming part of the Prosero Security Group team,” added Dan and Henrik.
“We’re pleased and proud to welcome HARDI-V to Prosero. The company has an impressive history and has built a leading position in the industry over time, with a strong brand,” says Fredrik Gren, CEO of Prosero Security Group. “Denmark is a strategically important market for Prosero. With HARDI-V, we can take a major step forward in accelerating our growth in the region.”
