What may be the largest security force in North America has grown. Allied Universal, a facility services and security company with more than 150,000 employees, has purchased FJC Security Services, based in Floral Park, N.Y. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

I look forward to expanding upon the success the company has built over the years.”
FJC provides uniformed security professionals, and has annual revenue of nearly US$300 million. The company’s leadership team has a strong law enforcement and military background.
The company’s staff of 6,300 serves residential complexes, college campuses, government buildings, healthcare facilities, commercial businesses and construction projects for major airports and high-profile public landmarks.
“The FJC Group’s history in protecting clients regionally has been a great success story. We are proud to continue our mission under the auspices of Allied Universal and its stellar reputation,” said Frank Califano, FJC Chairman and CEO.
