HARDCAR Acquires GVD Investigations, Strengthening the Company's Security Arm

While the cannabis industry is still transitioning from the black market to a legal market, verifying who to do business with requires investigative expertise and due diligence to reduce liability.


California-based HARDCAR announced today that it has acquired GVD Investigations in order to provide criminal, civil and administrative investigations for cannabis companies throughout California and eventually the nation. This announcement comes on the heels of HARDCAR acquiring National Cannabis Security Services out of Pennsylvania, increasing the company’s U.S. footprint from three states to ten.

With over 75 combined years of law enforcement experience, GVD Investigations has expertise in undercover work, narcotic enforcement, complex criminal investigations, government administrative reviews, and police background inquiries. This strategic acquisition strengthens HARDCAR’s position as one of the nation’s top providers of cannabis security.

“GVD represents a significant uptick in our government contract relations work. The acquisition is a strategic one for a number of reasons, especially now that we’re in multiple states and are able to action on state-level contracts across the U.S.” – Todd Kleperis, CEO of HARDCAR

GVD Investigative Services include Police Pre-Employment Background Investigations, Character Verification, Vehicle and High Value Asset Tracking, Counter Surveillance Sweeps, commercial cannabis applicant investigations, security plans and threat assessments.

HARDCAR is the leading secured logistics provider and distributor of California cannabis products and cash. With leadership roles in the nation’s top cannabis associations, groundbreaking advocacy meetings with government officials, and unprecedented partnerships with credit unions, the company has established itself as a leader in the expanding U.S. cannabis market.
