Our history goes way back

From a team of three to a global force

We have a rich but humble heritage, dating back to 1934 when our original company was founded in Sweden – mainly to provide protection against fires and intruders. Since those early days, we have become one of the world's largest security providers.

Starting life with just three employees, we now boast a 9,000-plus UK team, making us one of Britain's largest security providers.

On a global scale, Securitas employs over 370,000 employees, across 58 countries spanning North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, Australia, the Middle East and Asia.

We live by the values of Integrity, Vigilance and Helpfulness.
