This is according to the CEO Heine Wang: "The Group is in a European market. We established operations in Sweden in 2008 and Denmark in this year. It was therefore necessary to have a stronger name. Vakt Service also provides associations that we are exclusively engaged in security. The business Guard is obviously still a very important priority, but not the only one explains Wang."
