Based on a rental model, SmartGuard has since 2006 supplied customers with temporary, preventive, and value creating security as a service solutions.

Its close working relationships with local law enforcement, and full portfolio of expert, innovative and intelligence-led solutions, ensure it can help clients to better understand their risks and select the most appropriate solutions to mitigate them.

“We are very pleased to have found a partner in Detertech that got an underlying understanding of the ecosystem that we operate within. We are convinced that Detertech is the right strategic partner for our next growth phase, as we see great synergies between our business models and, we are looking forward to expanding our services further in the Nordics based on our joint product offering.” – Casper Wilken, CEO & Founder

“A special thanks to the Carlsquare team for guiding me through the sometimes choppy waters of M&A and making sure we reached the best possible starting point for the next phase of the journey.“ 

It is a great match, that will provide the founder with a strong partner, for the continued growth in the Nordics.
