US based Argentbright Group makes strategic investment in Amberstone Security

“Over the next 5 years, we plan to re-establish our leadership position in the UK, where we have built successful businesses in the past…”

Risk-led intelligent solution provider, Amberstone Security, has secured investment from the Argenbright Group, a leading provider of ‘human capital services’ headquartered in Atlanta, USA. In so doing Argenbright will re-establish its UK presence and expand into Europe, with Amberstone as its platform company.

This investment, combined with Argenbright Group’s track record in security services over four decades, is intended to help establish Amberstone as a top-five player in the UK in the coming years , and facilitate expansion into new sectors and verticals.

Commented Jason Trigg, Managing Director of Amberstone…

“There are a lot of parallels between the two businesses.  We are both entrepreneurial market disruptors, who have always looked to change the narrative of the security industry and make the services on offer even more bespoke and customer-centric.”

“This investment is a validation of Amberstone’s strategy and leadership in providing its clients with innovative security and technology solutions. This is an opportunity to accelerate our growth plan and become the largest privately held security services provider in the UK, in the short to medium term.”

Karan Ishwar, CEO of the Argenbright Group, commented…

“As a part of Argenbright’s global footprint this investment in Amberstone, to support Jason and his UK leadership team, will resonate well with our existing clients and other trusted business relationships. We will invest in growing our UK security business on the Amberstone platform by adding significant capabilities in account management, sales and selective strategic acquisitions.

We are excited to partner with Jason and the team at Amberstone. This transaction is at the core of our strategy to enhance our portfolio by adding a security services business in the UK and underscore our unique brand of legendary service and technology-driven solutions to valued clients globally.”

“Over the next 5 years, we plan to re-establish our leadership position in the UK where we have built successful businesses in the past,” said Frank A. Argenbright Jr., Executive Chairman of Argenbright Group. “We are excited to be back in the security business in the UK and look forward to sharing my experience in helping Jason take the business to the next level.”
