Ingérop takes over the Safety and Security Engineering business of the Risk and Co group

Through its specialized subsidiary GLI, based in Montreuil and Jonage, Ingérop has taken over all the assets of the Risk and Co group’s “I2S” business unit. The Risk and Co group, a service company specializing in safety, security and cybersecurity, was placed in receivership by the Nanterre court this summer.

The creation of a benchmark player with high added value

With its solid reputation, GLI, a specialist in low-voltage engineering (control, automation, active safety, fire detection, centralized technical management), joined the Ingérop group in 2021 and has seen its sales increase by over 30% since that date in the highly dynamic, high value-added field of “intelligent buildings”. With the acquisition of Risk and Co’s I2S entity, this momentum has been amplified, enabling GLI to become the benchmark player in consulting and project management in the field of building and physical infrastructure safety and security.

Like GLI, Risk and Co’s customer portfolio includes prestigious companies and institutions, and covers strategic infrastructures ranging from public institutions (ministries, BnF, Musée du Louvre) to sensitive industrial sites. Against a backdrop of convergence between the IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology) businesses, this merger is also an opportunity to extend the range of services to the cybersecurity of industrial systems and the smart city, to provide a comprehensive offering that responds to the intensification of physical and cyber risks for buildings, public infrastructures and sensitive facilities.

The resulting team will comprise over 60 employees, based in Montreuil (93) and Jonage (69), and will generate sales of around 10 million euros by 2024.

André Perez, Managing Director of GLI, comments: “I’m delighted to welcome talented new employees to GLI, and more broadly to the Ingérop family. I am convinced that they will find a serene and fulfilling environment. Together, we’re going to build on the superb momentum we’ve created over the past 2 years and conquer new territories, in keeping with our values as independent experts.”

Ludovic Vaz, Director of the Ingérop Group’s Building business, comments: “This acquisition is in line with the Ingérop Group’s “Vision 2027” strategic plan. It aims to support the digital transition of major clients, and to promote responsible digital solutions that minimize resource consumption.
