Heras strengthens its high-security expertise and service business in Germany through the acquisition of BA-KRO

Heras has acquired BA-KRO, a German specialist in the installation and service of high security electronic and mechanical systems for critical infrastructure. The transaction marks the next step in the long-standing partnership between the two companies.

BA-KRO is a specialist in site security, implementing complex security systems in sensitive sites such as industrial complexes, airports, prisons, and embassies. Since 1997, the Berlin-based company has been engaged in the planning, sale, installation, and maintenance of security systems throughout Germany.

Pride and mutual trust

Heras’ acquisition of BA-KRO marks a new phase of an already long-standing and intensive partnership. “We are very proud to welcome BA-KRO as part of Heras,” says Emmanuel Rigaux, CEO of Heras. “Heras and BA-KRO have been working closely together for many years, so there is a lot of mutual respect and trust. BA-KRO’s expertise, experience and reputation are going to help us serve our high-security customers even better across Germany.”

“Heras is a renowned name in the world of site security,” says Helmut Bauer, Managing Director of BA-KRO. “We are therefore looking forward, as part of Heras, to expanding and intensifying our presence in the medium and high security market. The acquisition by Heras also gives BA-KRO a stable and strong home base for the future.”

Unique combination on the German market

Heras Deutschland GmbH and BA-KRO GmbH will continue to exist as two separate brands, with BA-KRO operating under the Heras banner. Matthias Kötter, Managing Director of Heras Germany and BA-KRO says: “Together, the companies create a unique and powerful combination on the German market: Heras as a total supplier and service provider of site security solutions and BA-KRO as a project leader and installation specialist of security installations.” “Moreover, Heras is significantly expanding its service area in Germany, as BA-KRO is located in the east of the country. This allows Heras to provide customers throughout Germany with service and maintenance even faster.”
