“As we celebrate our twentieth anniversary, this deal brings together our complementary offerings to deliver enhanced risk, HSE and emergency response services that provide peace of mind to clients.”
Set up by Jim Walker, Altor Risk Group provides five service divisions in managing major accident hazards covering risk and process safety, emergency response and crisis management, security, business continuity and environmental services.
