THOMPSONS SE­CU­RITY GROUP

Africa Outlook - - The Pavilion -

The Com­pany was founded in 1939 by the Thompsons fam­ily in the Vaal Tri­an­gle. It has fol­lowed a pro­gres­sive growth cy­cle over the past seven decades and evolved from a com­pany that fo­cused on the pro­vi­sion of se­cu­rity of­fi­cers to a full se­cu­rity provider. The same val­ues on which the Com­pany were founded are still en­trenched through the found­ing fam­ily’s con­tin­ued in­volve­ment on both a strate­gic and op­er­a­tional level.

The Thompsons Se­cu­rity Group has taken a proac­tive stance to eco­nomic devel­op­ment, par­tic­u­larly to­wards Broad Based Black Eco­nomic Em­pow­er­ment. A strate­gic de­ci­sion was un­der­taken in 2002 that gave ex­pres­sion to this com­mit­ment in the for­ma­tion of Thompsons Khusela.

The struc­ture was a true em­pow­er­ment scheme as it granted long serv­ing em­ploy­ees within the Com­pany an in­ter­est in a newly formed com­pany with very lit­tle ex­po­sure to risk, with the Thompsons fam­ily pro­vid­ing the in­fra­struc­ture, fi­nan­cial back­ing and con­tin­ued men­tor­ship.

Thompsons Khusela is now strate­gi­cally po­si­tioned as one of the fore­most providers of com­pre­hen­sive se­cu­rity so­lu­tions that are:

• Un­der­pinned by best-in-class sys­tems

and pro­cesses

• Im­ple­mented by trained se­cu­rity

of­fi­cers

• Sup­ported by lead­ing-edge
