FE Blog3

DISA Global Solutions continues to expand its capacity, expertise, and services with another strategic acquisition in the heart of the Gulf Coast. Effective November 1, 2017, DISA has acquired SECON, a fully integrated, Louisiana based provider of comprehensive drug testing and specimen collection services.

Since 1981, SECON has been a staple in the drug testing and specimen collection services industry. SECON has nearly 1,000 Gulf Coast customers and exceptionally high customer loyalty, with several partnerships spanning over 10+ years. This strategic acquisition allows DISA Global to expand our customer base in the Gulf Coast market, while securing a knowledgeable staff and strong support team. In fact, SECON’s staff includes two C-SAPA’s (Certified Substance Abuse Program Administrator), of which there are less than 150 nationally.

SECON Managing Director, Stacy Breaux said, “Since the early 1980s, both DISA and SECON have been pioneers in the drug testing industry. We’re extremely familiar with DISA’s leadership team, the DISA brand, and their unique business model. We’re excited to join the DISA team, and we look forward to offering our valued customers an even wider array of employee screening services.”

DISA’s CEO, John Peterson stated, “Acquiring SECON was a strategic next step to further strengthen our market presence in the Gulf Coast region. Their experienced customer support teams, industry expertise, and established customer base make it a key acquisition complementary to our growth strategy. To ensure continuity, DISA will maintain the existing offices in Lafayette, LA and Houma, LA, as well as the support teams that have retained such high customer loyalty. Together, we will provide our clients with comprehensive employee screening programs that empower them to make the most informed decisions, safeguard their organizations, and mitigate risks. We look forward to working with our new DISA team members, and we remain committed to serving all customers at the highest level.”

SECON will re-brand to become part of DISA Global Solutions in the coming months, as we focus on bringing their customers onto the DISAWorks platform.
