London-based security provider, Banham, has continued its expansion as it has acquired Swindon-based Tops Security.

“With us both being family owned and run, there is an undeniable natural synergy between Banham and Tops Security in both our core values and the way in which we operate. It is important that we work closely together to continue to work with local communities, develop our people into leading experts and also provide a premium product and service to our customers. Tops joining Banham will add to and complement our growth plans for the future.” 

Simon Rushton, Director and Owner at Tops Security said: “This is a very proud moment for us all at Tops Security and is a true testament to our continued success since we started the company in 2008.

Gary Jones, Director and Owner at Tops Security added: “We look forward to the start of this new partnership with Banham and the exciting prospects that lie ahead.  We strongly felt that Banham’s name, reputation, ethos and plans for Tops provided the very best opportunity for everyone involved and gives us a stable, and exciting future for our whole team.”
