New York, NY (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
McRoberts Protective Agency, Inc., is pleased to announce that it has acquired the assets of Liberty Guard Service, Inc., of New England. With this acquisition, McRoberts solidified its Boston operation.
“Liberty Guard and McRoberts have been friends and colleagues in the cruise line security industry for decades,” said McRoberts CEO Meredith McRoberts. “The acquisition was a natural progression in our relationship and the perfect fit because of its allied lines of business in cruise and special events. Also driving the deal is the explosive growth of our student tour business in the Boston area.”
Liberty Guard’s owner, Charlie Patterson, in announcing the deal to his external and internal clients, wrote, “Over the years, I have been approached many times with offers and in every case I did not feel that it was in the best interests of our clients or staff to proceed. In this case, I have personally known and worked parallel with Meredith McRoberts and her company for many years. McRoberts, founded in 1876, is the oldest privately held security firm in operation in the US. Its vast resources together with its commitment to localized management and service along with my personal experience were major considerations for us to partner with McRoberts.”
The oldest security agency in America, ranked 15th in size and a certified WBE, McRoberts provides customized, comprehensive, integrated and cost-effective security solutions that include services, personnel and technologies (http://www.mcroberts1876.com).
