Prosero makes strategic acquisition in Northern Norway
Prosero Security Group (”Prosero”) continues to grow in the Norwegian market, and is now acquiring Securinord AS (”Securinord”). Prosero is further strengthening its position in Northern Norway with this acquisition, enhancing its offerings in Norway for electronics and digital security such as intruder alarms and CCTV.
”The acquisition of Securinord strengthens our position in Northern Norway, and will create a link between our other companies in the region. Securinord joining the Prosero Group gives us additional weight in electronic security, such as intruder alarms and CCTV, in Norway in general, but also in Northern Norway in particular”, comments Mikael Norlander, CEO of Prosero.
Securinord is based in Harstad in Northern Norway, where it possesses a market-leading position. The location is strategically beneficial for Prosero, which already has companies in both Tromsø and Bodø.
Securinord was founded in 2010 by the company’s current CEO Jens Christian Helgesen. Securinord offers service and integration of locks, access control systems, intruder alarms and CCTV.
”On a number of occasions, I have declined offers from parties that were interested in acquiring us. But choosing Prosero seems quite good and we strongly believe that we will be able to continue with our local anchoring without being swallowed up in a large company. I feel Prosero was a good choice since they recognise the value of the resources we have in the form of our employees and since Securinord will be allowed to continue to grow and develop. The Prosero model also provides a stronger foundation by being a part of a larger entity. We can now continue to develop and be part of a larger professional environment”, says Jens Christian Helgesen, CEO of Securinord.
Securinord currently has 12 employees and sales of approx. NOK 16 million. The previous owners of the company have become part-owners of Prosero through the acquisition.
