CLEVELAND, OH, Aug. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - AFIMAC, a North American leader in corporate security and crisis response has announced its acquisition of Mena International Group, specialists in security, investigations and crisis response within Latin America. The buy-out comes just two weeks after AFIMAC announced its corporate merger of AFI International and IMAC Global, a move intended to streamline its services across North America. This flurry of alliance and acquisition activity signals a major growth and expansion phase for the well-recognized and elite group of security companies.
Through the acquisition of Mena International, AFIMAC will now further extend its reach into Latin America in order to better serve those companies with multi-regional operations.

"We are thrilled to make Mena part of our AFIMAC family," says Peter Martin, president and CEO of AFIMAC Global. "Whether it is a kidnap for ransom, labor dispute, cargo security matter, or executive protection requirement, AFIMAC is now able to service the entire corridor through North and South America."
"AFIMAC is a company that isn't afraid to invest real dollars into markets that their clients regard as critical," says Ruben Mena, president of Mena International Group.
