Effective of Thursday 3rd August, Oakpark Security has been acquired in its entirety by the Vertas Group.
Managing Director Ken Hilton has exited the business and all 130+ staff will transfer to Vertas, continuing to work under the Oakpark Security brand. There will be no change for our customer and staff in terms of day to day operations.
The Vertas Group is the fastest growing multi-service facilities management company in the East of England. Based in Ipswich, the company has a turnover of £44 million and employs employs around 2,300 staff across 400 sites in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
Ian Surtees, Vertas Group Limited’s CEO, said:
“We are thrilled to be able to further grow our security services in the region. Oakpark has years’ of experience in managing the security for a range of clients and will bring a wealth of knowledge to the Vertas Group. This new arrangement will put us on the front foot when bidding for upcoming security contracts; with a bespoke offer suited to the client’s requirements and budget. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of Oakpark’s staff and clients to the Vertas Group; we look forward to meeting and working with you over the coming weeks and months.”
