About Us

Why Choose Us

Established in 1990 as Powerhouse Security Services has grown from modest beginnings into our current position as of one of the top five security industry players in South Africa. While we are the largest privately owned privately managed security company in the country, we maintain the same core values and hands-on approach on which the company was built.

We back this up with an extensive support infrastructure which is designed to intentionally and consistently deliver the highest levels of service.
