Keefe Group the number one supplier to the correctional facility niche market and has grown into the most successful company in the history of this market. Many companies have come up against it, but they are still not able to wrestle the control out of the Keefe’s Group grasp and most end up closing shop leaving the Keefe Group to continue to dominate this industry. Due to its monopoly in the prison supplies market, Keefe Group has achieved the success that its competitors only dream about.
A subsidiary of the Centric Group of companies, Keefe Group, based in Missouri, exclusively supplies the correctional market with various services that range from personal care products for inmates, clothing, technology equipment, electronics, telecommunications, software solutions and food products. In 1975 the Keefe Group started to exclusively supply correctional facilities and quickly rose to be the country’s number one private supplier of correctional facilities.
The Keefe Group is in no doubt successful as it has earned over $40 million dollars during the period of 2008 to 2014. When a competitor emerges, the Keefe Group simply flexes its financial muscle and purchases its rival as such was the case when it bought G.T. Enterprises a company that was based in Mississippi. Due to pressure and outcry from players in this industry, the department of corrections was forced to come up with measures to try and regulate this market stating that all contracts no matter how small should go through a bidding process for accountability purposes.
Centric Group, the parent company of Keefe Group, purchased the company, G.T. Enterprises as it continues its expansion program as they strive to provide top-notch service delivery to its clients. Accountability is also a major aspect of the Keefe Group, and they follow the rules set forth by the Departments of Corrections in the bidding of tenders, and due to their spotless track record, they continue to get more business from the Correctional facilities. Professionalism and efficiency are the Keefe’s Group main attributes, and for this, they will continue laughing all the way to the bank for the foreseeable future.
