Sunlake Capital Launches Contract Security Industry Platform and Partners with Mangrove Equity Partners
July 2018 - Patrol Protect Secure, Inc. (known as “PPS”) was formed by Sunlake Capital and Mangrove Equity Partners to pursue a growth-oriented investment strategy in the U.S. contract security industry. The co-sponsors believe there is tremendous opportunity to build a substantial, best-in-class contract security provider by focusing on service excellence and recruiting, training and retaining high quality people – thus filling a void left in the market as the large contract security firms increasingly sacrifice quality for volume.
PPS is actively seeking acquisitions of like-minded contract security providers to support its growth in new and existing geographies.
