OCS Acquires Profile Security Services
12 December 2023


FM company OCS has acquired Profile Security Services for an undisclosed sum.

Profile Security Services is an independent security specialist headquartered in Lincolnshire, with offices in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Cardiff, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Warrington. Founded in 1980, the firm initially provided manned guarding but has since evolved into a technology-enabled security solutions provider.

OCS, which merged with Atalian Servest this year under the ownership of private Equity Firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, has said that it will use the acquisition to further its goal of becoming “the best facilities services business in the world.”

Daniel Dickson, UK & Ireland CEO of OCS, said: ” Profile Security Services has built a strong reputation in the market for its professionalism and the quality of service it provides to its customers across the UK. Their leadership in innovation will support our existing focus on technological excellence, ultimately driving the best solutions for our customers who will also benefit from our broadened capabilities.”

This is OCS’ second acquisition of the year after it acquired Accuro in October.
