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. 

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. Latin America is a very important market for AFIMAC’s global clients and, based on its superior reputation, Mena was selected as the best security partner that could bring access, security expertise and experience across the region.

“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. “With its excellent reputation and far-sighted vision, we see it as a golden opportunity to join forces and are confident of future success under the same brand.”
