Kingdom is delighted to announce that, as of 1 April 2017, they have acquired London based security company Rehene Multiservice Limited ‘a subsidiary of Kilnbridge Group Limited’.

Rehene provide security services to some of the biggest names in national infrastructure and the acquisition continues the expansion of Kingdom to £100+ million turnover and 5,500 people.

Terry Barton BA Hons Law, (pictured right) Chief Executive of Kingdom said: “We currently have a very large and established London Centric customer base that we are extremely proud of and the acquisition of Rehene bolsters further our London business strength.

"With our fresh approach to service delivery and innovative and added value solutions across all our service lines we believe we have a something very truly different to offer the national infrastructure sector which includes civil engineering, construction, power and utilities.

"The Rehene team remain and join the wider Kingdom family and we look forward to meeting all our new customers."

Dermot McDermott Managing Director of Rehene Multiservice Ltd said: “Over the past 15 years, we believe, that we have built up a good relationship with our customers and have earned a good reputation for providing a first-rate service, within the sectors that we currently operate in. 

"We have been aware, however, that the security industry is not our core business; therefore, we sought to find a buyer who really appreciates the business, understands the industry and is keen and capable of developing its future potential. 
 
"The current management team of Stephen Greenaway and Derek Cook will remain as your contacts within the new regime and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the transition of the business from Rehene to Kingdom.
