  • Once upon a time in the port of Saint-Nazaire...

    Created in 1958 in the Saint Nazaire port area, the security company was at the beginning a family business. At this time, its activity was only the guarding of a few sites around Saint-Nazaire. Thanks to its growth, the company became quickly a public company in 1973 and opened its first agency in Brest in 1974.

     

    In 1975, the economic context linked to the oil crisis plunged the company into trouble, compelling to  organization changes. For six years involved in security business, Guy TEMPEREAU, 23 years old, bet on future by purchasing the company in 1976. In a few months, he achieved the first results and saved the company, which figures 30 years later at the top of the profession.

  • Diversification of products

    Convinced that staff professionalism is the base of any business, Guy TEMPEREAU created in 1978 the security school. One year later, he pursued his diversification policy by creating his first monitoring center as well as the activity of electronic equipments installation.

     

    The combining of human and technology in the 90’s give Sécurifrance a competitive edge in technological domain.  The monitoring and guidelines computerised management as the robotic automation enable to optimize a complete security system. 

  • Geographical extension

    At the same time, SERIS Group began its geographical development to cover progressively  the whole national territory : the agencies of Nantes, Rennes, Poitiers, Paris, Lille, Rouen, Orléans  were opened.

    In the 90’s, this policy is extended to the south of France : the agencies of Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux, Toulouse were born.

    The 2000’s  confirm this policy by associating  the internal growth to external growth, concretized  by two development operations in the East and the North of France, allowing the group to climb to the 3rd national rank.

     

  • A European dimension

    SERIS Group achieved and important milestone by positioning itself at european level through successful external growth operations, in Belgium (Initial Security in 2006), then in the Netherlands (Group Perfect in 2010 and acquisition of the Group ANVD in 2011).

    As part of this opening beyond the French borders, the group, until then known as Securifrance, adopted the SERIS name for all of its activities.

    In 2013, SERIS Group finalized its establishment in Benelux by the creation of SERIS Luxembourg. The Group, in constant progression, reached 320 million Euros of turnover and confirmed its leading position.

     

  • On the international course ! 

    In 2015, SERIS  accelerated  its development on the international scene thanks to a 44 % acquisition in the capital of Amarante International.

    Since then, SERIS Group is able to extend its skills internationally by reaching more sensitive, complex and strategic markets than it used to.
