VICTORIA, BC, February 2, 2017 – Paladin Security Group announced it has acquired Victoria-based KC Security Services as of February 1, 2017.
The purchase of KC Security Services is the second acquisition made by Paladin’s Vancouver Island Operations within the past 12 months, expanding further on the company’s commitment to service excellence for its customers in the Greater Victoria region.
The acquisition fits into Paladin Security’s strategy in growing its mobile security operations. In purchasing KC Services, Paladin will add openings for both full-time and part-time positions.
Shane Wright, Director of Vancouver Island Operations commented on the growth, sharing, “We are very proud of completing the acquisition of KC Security Services, which bolsters our position in the Victoria marketplace. More important than increasing our sheer size, volume of work, and capabilities, our greatest benefit is the additional business partnerships which will deepen Paladin’s strong connections with the business community in Greater Victoria. As well, we are increasing the number of higher paying security positions within our Victoria branch through an increased Victoria mobile department. It is an exciting situation to be providing both our clients and our people with greater long-term opportunities.
Paladin’s Executive Vice President, Chad Kalyk, added, “With over 10 years of business in Victoria, it is critical that Paladin continues to invest in our island operations. Our strength as an organization is in the people and communities in which we conduct business and this acquisition allows us to further connect with the Victoria community we care so deeply about.
With a large market presence, an established local office and a committed management team, Paladin will continue to lead over 200 security professionals on Vancouver Island.
