Our history

SECOM Plc began back in 1918, when the family-owned Lodge Lock and Safe Company was founded. Since then, the company had grown and acquired a number of related businesses, which then led to us becoming the Carroll Security Group.

In 1991, Carroll was acquired by SECOM Co Ltd of Japan, turning us into the company you see today. Throughout these changes, we’ve retained our high standard of customer care and continue to put the security of our clients and their assets at the heart of our operations. We have grown from strength to strength ever since.

A leader in technological innovation and security solutions

Today, SECOM Group employs over 71,000 people in nearly 2,600 locations worldwide, with operations in 17 countries and territories. We have collective assets exceeding $17 billion and an annual turnover of $9.2 billion from nearly 3.7 million customers.*

Together with our partners, and the dedication of everyone at SECOM, we have created a trusted organisation that has become synonymous with care, quality and innovation.

Through our technological innovation and exemplary service, SECOM’s aim is to provide reliable security solutions and a rapid response service, enabling everyone to protect what matters.
