The Clearway Group enhances its service capability through the addition of specialist fire and security technology business.
Headquartered in London, Clearway is a leading commercial security services provider specialising in securing vulnerable properties, sites and assets. The Group delivers solutions that are tailored to their customers’ needs, utilising an extensive range of specialist services integrated with market-leading technology. The Group’s critical technology-led security solutions include CCTV and alarms, to monitor, secure and protect properties and assets. Employing 250 people, the Group has nationwide operations across the UK and France. The addition of Sitewatch to Clearway further strengthens both its technology proposition and its UK-wide operations with three new locations in Halesowen, Swindon and Sandbach.
Sitewatch was founded in 2002 by Managing Director, John Karvaski, and has a strong team of security and fire safety experts across the business. Building on the security-focussed technology solutions already provided by Clearway, Sitewatch adds automated fire and life safety systems whilst also enhancing the Group’s CCTV and access control offering. Sitewatch will form part of the Clearway Technology business unit where its security specialists will further expand the knowledge and experience of Clearway’s existing team, specifically in the area of fire security and safety.
Commenting on the acquisition, Ian Quinlan, The Clearway Group CEO, said:
We are very pleased to welcome the Sitewatch team into Clearway at what is an exciting time for Group. The technology and operational benefits this acquisition brings will enable us to not only provide more support and solutions to our existing clients but also expand our proposition and client base and continue to ensure a high-level of service. We look forward to this acquisition supporting our next wave of growth.”
John Karvaski, Sitewatch Founder and Managing Director, commented:
“Having spent over 20 years building a successful business, finding the right partner to ensure we continue our success was important and we have found the perfect partner with The Clearway Group. Sitewatch and Clearway are a good fit, and this move will be beneficial to not only the staff but also our combined customer base. We are looking to the future and what the wider Group brings to the Sitewatch client portfolio as much as what we bring to the wider Clearway Technology proposition. The industry has changed a lot and with technology constantly being updated, it’s important to remain at the forefront.”
