Goldman Sachs-owned U.S. Security Associates acquires UK-based Entourage Security Management
U.S. Security Associates (USA), through its wholly owned affiliate, Andrews International LLC, has announced the acquisition of Entourage Security Management, one of London’s premier security firms. The globalization of business is leading more and more clients to seek security solutions outside the U.S. borders and this move establishes a strong foothold for the company in Europe.
Entourage provides uniformed security services, executive protection, special event staffing, and security & risk management consultation. Entourage offers custom-tailored programs for high-end clients and unique security profiles and needs. They specialize in corporate, hotel, retail and event security and serve a portfolio of premier global clients.
Richard L. Wyckoff, President and CEO of U.S. Security Associates stated, “With the acquisition of Entourage, we have accomplished a goal of strategic expansion into the European Union. Through organic growth and key acquisitions like Entourage, we are building our presence in the international markets where clients need us. Many current clients are asking us to provide our world-class service in more locations. With this newly established presence in Europe, we are better positioned to serve them.”
Randy Andrews, Chief Security Officer of U.S. Security Associates and President of Andrews International, stated “We have been working with Entourage for many years through our Consulting & Investigations Division. We feel that we are aligned from a cultural perspective and that this acquisition fits well into our expansion plans.”
Troy Hewitt, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Entourage Security Management, stated “We are very excited about joining this world-class organization. Our mission is to be our clients’ most valuable service provider: a genuine asset to their business that protects and enhances their reputation. We believe that Andrews International shares that mission and that this acquisition will bring great opportunities to both our clients and our employees.”
U.S. Security Associates, through its affiliate Andrews International, has also recently established operations in Honduras and Nicaragua and will soon have a presence in Costa Rica.
