Grosvenor acquire Charter Security

Grosvenor Corporate Security, a division of Grosvenor Services has acquired the guarding contractor Charter Security Limited. Grosvenor Services describe the move as part of their strategy to concentrate on building a presence in the City of London across its range of services. The two firms, family owned and run say that they will continue to foster their shared values and further support their positions in the market.

Ben McCauley, Managing Director of Grosvenor Services is looking forward to welcoming Charter Security, one of the most respected security providers in London and its staff and clients to the Grosvenor Services Group. For over 55 years Grosvenor Services has been a successful family owned and run business and it was important to the McCauley family that any business to join the group reflected the same ethos, Charter’s proud family ties and strong client relationships made it the perfect fit;
“Charter Security and Grosvenor Services have shared principles and this was important to us. We recognised that Charter joining our group would strengthen our offering to clients and be a major step to growing in the London market without diluting what makes Grosvenor and Charter so strong – our family values.”

Claire Lambert, Managing Director of Charter Security Ltd said: “Grosvenor was strategically selected for our growth in all related services, their similar core values and ethos for this acquisition. We are extremely pleased that we can continue to provide our core security services together with Grosvenor. We are passionate about our people and the services we provide, and I am totally committed to this new journey.”
