Avon Protection acquires SecureBio to form ‘Avon Training and Consultancy’
Avon Protection, part of Avon Rubber p.l.c, has acquired SecureBio Ltd., the specialist CBRN consultancy it partnered with in 2014.
The acquisition of SecureBio strengthens Avon’s position as a market leader in CBRN protection, and provides a pioneering in-house consultancy service offering specialist risk management, security and training packages to the commercial, media, insurance and counter-terrorism markets.
This acquisition is a significant step for both companies and will deliver end-to-end, customised services through the newly formed ‘Avon Training and Consultancy’ provision.
Oliver Morton of SecureBio said, “This is a fantastic opportunity, combining the world leader in respiratory protection with an innovative consultancy to ensure the military, law enforcement, commercial and media customer is able to benefit from a truly end-to-end procurement solution. We are really looking forward to joining Avon, expanding our training and consultancy offering, whilst drawing on their expertise to deliver a multitude of turnkey solutions to a global market.”
Peter Slabbert, CEO at Avon said “We are delighted to have SecureBio on-board and welcome the team. Avon Protection has expanded its services to offer protection solutions and this development into training and consultancy is very exciting for us all.”
