Securitas väktare historiskt och nutida

Our history

In the beginning of the 1900’s, private security companies became increasingly common. The services that these companies offered were primarily keeping watch for fires and guarding entrances and gates. Today, security solutions are designed to meet specialized customer demands and the industry is led by a few international focused security companies – among them Securitas.
