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.”
