Octavian Security, the UK security contractor, has founded a Turkish division. Dr Mehmet Naci Efe will head Octavian Turkey, with CEO and founder of Octavian Sukhi Ghuman continuing to head the global business. What the firm calls a global strategy team will also be put in place to maximise the worldwide reach of the company brand.
The two companies were introduced by Turkey’s Deputy Director for the Ministry of Culture and Tourism Askin Evyapan.
Octavian Turkey will offer all of the services available to Octavian’s existing divisions, including manned security, event security, remote monitoring, training and development and facilities management. The joint venture is expected to be fully operational by January 2015.
Sukhi Ghuman said: “Octavian is pleased to join with EKOL in what will be a long term strategic relationship in the security industry. This joint venture is consistent with our global development strategy to enhance our global footprint. EKOL’s experience at a local level combined with Octavian’s international experience and core values places us at the forefront of propositions in this rapidly expanding market.”
And Dr Mehmet Naci Efe added: “For some time we have been looking to partner with an organisation to create this joint venture, but it was very important that we found the right company to do business with. Octavian Security share our ambitious business objectives, so we are very excited about what the future holds for Octavian Turkey.”
