The company employs over 700 people, more than 80 of whom are committed in research and development. A-SAFE has achieved significant organic growth and today serves more than 6,000 customers in over 50 countries. Its diversified customer base includes some of the largest companies in the world, including Coca-Cola, UPS and Amazon.

 

With the support of IK Partners and its dedicated Partnership Fund, which focuses on minority investments in established, fast-growing companies, A-SAFE is poised for further growth. The management team, led by James and Luke Smith, together with the expertise and resources of IK Partners, aim to consolidate their leading position in the market whilst expanding their global reach, enhancing their product offering and increasing value for their clients.
