Prosegur Security has launched expanded operations in the UK and opened its new European retail headquarters near London.
“Prosegur will support the rebuilding of UK industry and infrastructure as the nation continues to recover from the impact of coronavirus,” said Simon Chapman, Prosegur’s vice president for UK and Europe. “We bring an advanced range of integrated technology solutions to meet the needs of organizations across every sector of industry, including retail, logistics, manufacturing and other commercial clients. As the third largest security company in the world, we are well known across the 26 countries we currently serve. For the UK and Europe, we will be demonstrating our proven services to all sectors in a series of virtual and physical trade events throughout the remainder of 2021 and beyond.”
Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, Prosegur has been vigorously expanding, largely thanks to the strong demand for technology-driven security solutions that can increase efficiency and effectiveness of corporate security programs while at the same time controlling costs. The company’s UK and European retail launch comes at the heels of similar expansion in the US where in January it opened a new 40,000 square feet distribution center and global retail headquarters in Florida.
“Prosegur’s key differentiator is the ability to provide a security solution that is a lot more than a sum of its parts,” said Tony D’Onofrio, CEO of Prosegur’s global retail business unit. “We leverage technology and innovation—especially in the areas of Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) —and are already actively partnering on these advanced solutions with multiple leading European retailers. Opening a European retail headquarters provides the framework to intensify next generation retail technologies discussions and delivery across the entire continent.”
The first event where UK and European business leaders will have a chance to acquaint themselves with Prosegur’s offerings will be the Retail Risk conference taking place in London, both in person and virtually, on July 22, 2021.
