Global Public Safety & Enterprise Initiative
In early 2017, the Enterprise Initiative facilitated the sale of Brekford’s vehicle upfitting business to LB&B Associates, Inc. (LB&B), a diversified services company providing facilities management, logistics management, training and other services to governments and private industry throughout the US and overseas. The aggregate transaction value was greater than Brekford’s then market cap and Novume retained 19.9% ownership in Global Public Safety. Since acquiring GPS in March 2017, LB&B has implemented a strategy of acquiring other upfitting business to achieve economies of scale and integrate operations and component sourcing. In addition to GPS’s original Hanover, MD location, the company has added a facility in Roebuck, SC and is targeting other existing locations to expand its geographic footprint. GPS is also leading the way in integrating drones and public safety vehicles by designing and building advanced aerial platforms for customers in defense, public safety and commercial industries.Discover Global Public Safety >
