Risk management firm reveals rebrand and Nordic acquisition

Telford-based risk management company The SmartWater Group has revealed its major rebrand as DeterTech.

The firm has also announced its acquisition of SmartGuard, a leading provider of temporary site security solutions in Denmark.

It follows the previous acquisition of Tag Security Holdings, which provides a platform from which DeterTech can now offer its solutions at scale into the Nordics, Benelux and Germany.

DeterTech’s portfolio comprises crime intelligence, site security, site sensors, access control and forensic marking.

Examples include enhancing the security of world leaders, protecting critical infrastructure and tackling domestic violence against women and girls.

The firm says it has helped reduce burglary’s in Greater London by 25%, protect more than 270,000 artefacts in Iraq, reduce delays on the rail network by 78% and reduce theft by 14% at a leading DIY retailer.

With operations in the UK and mainland Europe, DeterTech works to ensure it can help clients better understand their risks and select the most appropriate solutions to mitigate them.

Baba Devani, the CEO of DeterTech said: “I’m proud to lead an organisation whose purpose is to bring greater peace of mind to people and communities, every day.

“Our values of commitment, inclusivity and ambition will guide us in developing new services and solutions, attracting top talent and entering new markets.”

“The next chapter in this great company’s story is just being written,” concludes Devani. “With the backing of our investors Freshstream we have the expertise, resources and drive to be a trusted partner to customers across Europe.”
