Red Badge Group is pleased to announce an unconditional sale agreement has been executed for the acquisition of ELE Security (previously Bespoke Security and RISQ NZ), renowned providers of security guarding and risk management training across New Zealand. All aspects of the ELE Security guarding operation will seamlessly transition to Red Badge Group, ensuring ongoing employment for staff and continuity of security services for ELE Security customers.

Guarding services now make up more than 80% of the Red Badge Group operation, and this acquisition marks a significant milestone as we expand our service offerings more deeply into sectors such as healthcare and retail, strengthening our market position.

In addition to integrating ELE Security’s services, Red Badge Group has established RISQ Australasia Ltd as a separate entity. RISQ will be independently operated and managed by Bruce Couper as the General Manager. With a legacy of almost 20 years, RISQ has earned a reputation as a trusted provider of high-level personal safety and conflict management training, robbery safety skills and behavioral awareness training enabling us to deliver unparalleled value to customers of both Red Badge Group and RISQ.

“ELE Security is renowned for delivering quality security services and by integrating their principles into our existing operation we will further strengthen Red Badge Group’s position as a market leader. Through this transition period we will be totally focused on providing continuity for all ELE Security customers and staff while enhancing the focus on consistency, reliability and service excellence” said Ben Wooding, CEO of Red Badge Group.

“We are thrilled to welcome ELE Security customers and staff to the Red Badge family”
