Electronic security in focus at Securitas Investor Day

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Technology is changing the security industry dramatically, and Securitas is leading this transformation. At Securitas’ Investor Day in Malmö, Sweden, on June 21, 2016, Securitas President and CEO Alf Göransson together with members of the Group Management gave in-depth information about the company’s strategy for the future.

”Technology is changing faster and faster and is becoming a commodity in most industries. Everything becomes digital. Creativity, speed and agility are the new differentiators. In this new environment, it is less about technology but more and more about how we apply it and monetize innovation to bring increased value to our customers,” Alf Göransson, President and CEO Securitas AB, said in his presentation, and explained how this affects Securitas’ strategy for the future:  

“Securitas is leading the transformation of the security industry, from traditional guarding to protective services combining on-site, mobile and remote guarding with electronic security, fire and safety, and corporate risk management. We continue to invest and play a leading role in combining guarding services with electronic security and actively pursue organic sales growth in security solutions and electronic security.”

“Securitas also takes advantage of acquisition opportunities within electronic security. Recently we acquired the assets of Diebold Electronic Security in North America, which is the third-largest commercial electronic security provider in North America. This acquisition supports our strategy and strengthens our position as the global knowledge leader in protective services,” Alf Göransson said.
