Clearway expands European offering with SECONTEC acquisition

European security services provider, Clearway Group, has acquired SECONTEC Group, a leading provider of remote video surveillance and CCTV Towers across Germany and Austria.

London-based Clearway has nationwide operations across the UK and France, and the addition of SECONTEC further strengthens its European-wide security operations.

Founded in 2009, SECONTEC has four offices in Germany and Austria and two bespoke in-house Video Operation Centres (VOC) already supporting pan-European clients. Its successful use of artificial intelligence adds to Clearway’s existing technology portfolio which includes innovative solutions around its range of Temporary CCTV Towers and associated products.

Commenting on the acquisition, Peter Eglinton, Clearway’s Executive Chairman, said: “Clearway is very pleased to welcome SECONTEC into its ever-growing family of European-wide organisations. This strategic acquisition provides us with positive geographical expansion and additional capabilities to further develop the technology solutions side of our business. The enlarged Group will enable us to continue to grow our customer base across Europe and it also supports our ambitious strategy for growth. Our expanded team will now protect over 16,000 sites from our network of over 30 operational facilities across Europe and increases the number of Temporary CCTV Towers in our fleet to almost 2000 units.”

Romuald Kowalik, Founder and Managing Director of SECONTEC, commented: “We are very happy to become members of the established Clearway family. We have been impressed by the growth and development of Clearway and its team and we are excited to be a part of its future, continuing to expand our presence in the German-speaking markets and working together on advanced technology solutions.”
