Mitie Spain has made its first move into the security sector following its acquisition of Biservicus Group, a security business specialising in the installation, maintenance, surveillance and operation of fire, security, and alarm systems.
Based in the Canary Islands, Biservicus brings 30 years of experience delivering technology-led security services, with the business having installed 8,000 security alarms for 4,000 customers. The company is fully certified to deliver security services across Spain, which will enable Mitie to build its security capabilities across the country.
The acquisition also includes Bisermax Control, a provider of facilities management services, specialising in the hospitality industry.
Nearly 200 specialist Biservicus colleagues will join the Mitie team in Spain, including its senior leadership team. With immediate effect, José Luis García Hurtado, Mitie Spain’s Managing Director, has become General Manager of Biservicus, overseeing the business as it integrates with Mitie Spain.
The addition of Biservicus will enhance Mitie’s service offering in Spain, which currently provides a wide range of cleaning and facilities management services, predominantly focused on transport, aviation, retail and healthcare customers, to also include security services.
José Luis García Hurtado, Managing Director, Mitie Spain, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Biservicus team to the Mitie Spain family. With this addition to our business, we’re excited to be able to expand our service offering for customers, both in the Canary Islands and beyond.”
Mitie Spain has 6,000 colleagues working across mainland Spain, the Canary Islands, and the Balearic Islands.
