Fidelity Security Group is Southern Africa’s largest integrated security solutions provider and the industry leader in protection innovation.
With over 55 years of experience, the company’s strength lies in exceptional leadership, an unwavering commitment to excellent corporate governance and a comprehensive infrastructure. Fidelity offers unmatched coverage, with a staff complement of over 30 000 in branches across South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland. Preferred supplier status with a wide variety of companies has been won through sheer hard work, discipline and an aggressively proactive approach to staying at the forefront of the continually evolving security environment.
The Group has enjoyed excellent growth due to its hands-on approach, strategic initiatives, purposeful and highly successful BEE initiatives, that have made it South Africa’s largest Black Economic Owned Security Company.
Fidelity has a rich history stretching back to 1957, when the company was started by two partners to service the emerging Cash-In-Transit industry. The first guarding services were introduced in 1968 and shortly thereafter the company diversified into computerised payroll bureau services – a world first. The company continued to evolve with buy-ins and buy-outs, with acquisitions adding to the portfolio of services. One thing remained constant – a disciplined and an uncompromising ethos of security service excellence.
This, coupled with loyal and dedicated employees, led to the steady growth which today sees Fidelity as South Africa’s largest security operator. In 2005/6 the need for a meaningful BEE partnership led to the unbundling of the 40 000 employee group into separate entities, which then individually secured BEE partnerships.
The Cash-In-Transit division was sold off as part of this process and for a while, the Fidelity Group did not offer this service. In 2010, however, the movement of cash and valuable goods was reintroduced with the launch of Fidelity Cash Solutions. Fidelity’s achievements attest to the calibre of people in the diversified workforce that makes up the Fidelity Family, all of whom are valued for their ideas, innovation and efforts.
