VANCOUVER, Oct. 25, 2011 /CNW/ - Canpro Global Services Inc. and King-Reed & Associates LP amalgamated in June of 2011 to create Canpro King-Reed LP, the largest full-service risk mitigation and investigation company in Canada. Although both companies have enjoyed brand reputations as boutique specialized service providers, the new brand and logo will reflect the uniformity of one harmonized organization with distinct business verticals.

"CKR Global is the name that will become synonymous with quality and uniform service across Canada within each of our service lines," said Robert Burns, President and CEO, "since our merger in June we have worked at our 100-day integration plan with a thoughtful understanding that the needs of our clients for quality service delivery is our focus, so our integration, branding and management needed to reflect that priority."

Each of the CKR Global companies are now nationally united under their respective brands. According to Brian King, Chairman, "some functionality and administrative components were very easy to blend in each of the companies. What we wanted to ensure was that the specialized expertise and the methodology we brought together was not adopted into best practices without thoughtful internal dialogue - you can't sacrifice quality for the sake of expedience. With the new brands, and the structures within each of them, we have achieved that goal."

CKR Global's  operating companies are: CKR Global Investigations ,CKR Global Risk Solutions, CKR Global Safety & Rescue, CKR Global HRservices and CKR Global Labour Risk Management. Each CKR company now operates across Canada with uniform service delivery models, assuring clients receive the same exceptional service in all locations across all lines.

"The brand represents the synthesis of two previous companies that had been working together for 17 years under our managed associate program, Investigations Canada.  That history has made the amalgamation of our operations incredibly seamless. The new brand and logo represents a unified organization. We're all extremely excited to push forward under our new common banner," said Burns.
