Lodge Service has acquired Ladbroke Security Services.
Operating mainly in London and the south east, Ladbroke provides managed security services that include 24-hour concierge, front of house reception, guarding, remote video and CCTV monitoring, key-holding and patrol services. The company was founded in 1990 by the retailer Chinacraft to protect its assets and has expanded its services to include 30 independent customers; and now has 120 staff and sales of £2.25m. Lodge is a third-generation family-owned business that has its 100th anniversary in 2019; Lodge Security is an SIA-approved contractor.
Stuart Lodge, CEO, pictured, said: “I am pleased to announce the acquisition of an operation that is highly complementary to our own specialisations and markets at Lodge Security. Ladbroke has maintained a strong reputation from its early years when it specialised in retail security; with its family values and high-quality service delivery, it offers a great fit and an asset to the group.
“Ladbroke has grown its corporate, commercial and construction customer base by combining a blend of manpower and technology solutions – a strategy very much in line with that of the Lodge Service group.”
Its services include: staff credentials checks; undercover investigation and surveillance; on-line counterfeit and fraud detection; retail test purchasing; compliance audits; mystery shopping and customer service measurement through its React CX division; recruitment for office administration and security staff; CCTV installation; remote alarm receiving and building management 24-7; and incident and case management software, Lodgic Live.
