Andrews International and TranSecur Form Strategic Alliance

Leading Private Security Firms Combine Resources to Add Value to Client Services

LOS ANGELES, July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Andrews International, a full service provider of security and risk mitigation services, and TranSecur, America's oldest continually operating global security information provider, have announced the formation of a strategic alliance to provide more comprehensive security and risk management services to their respective customers. The joint venture will bring together leading security, due diligence, travel and international risk management professionals focused on balancing the client's business and risk management objectives.

"We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Andrews International," said Noel Koch, founder and President of TranSecur. "We believe there are tremendous opportunities to build upon the expertise and resources of our respective organizations to better serve our clients."

International investment, operations and travel are necessitated by the tremendous opportunities of the global marketplace, but with these opportunities come risk. Balancing security and safety, as well as mitigating risks and compliance, requires a "trusted" international resource with the expertise and experience to provide accurate, timely information that improves client's ability to make important investment and business decisions efficiently.

"Our strategic alliance forms a global network of operational resources," said Ty Richmond, Co-President and COO, Andrews International. "Both organizations recognize that security requires a holistic view and approach to be successful in mitigating risks and vulnerabilities, and that security should be defined by its strategic role in supporting the business process."

The alliance between Andrews International and TranSecur will provide clients with an enhanced portfolio of services, including:

-- International due diligence and business intelligence services -- Threat assessment and security survey capabilities -- Executive protection and travel support services

-- Timely reporting and analysis of security threats to overseas operations, travelers and expatriates

-- Expert advice, support and evacuation services

-- Delivery of customized travel risk advice to support international operations, travel and expatriates

-- Executive security awareness -- Traveler monitoring -- Crisis planning, management and response services

The unique global and corporate security experience of Andrews International's consulting team, combined with TranSecur's on-the-ground, in-country assets and technology-based services, uniquely position the firms to establish "threat profiles" that combine physical security and intelligence that balance business and security objectives for maximum effectiveness and efficiency to support corporate growth. The companies will continue to operate independently to ensure continued high levels of service and relationships.

This alliance will deliver an enhanced range of services that reduces risks and costs, and positions security as a "business enabler" by providing information necessary to avoid and minimize risks. Integrating strategy, people, technology and process adds value to assist in meeting client objectives.
