More about G4S

We specialise in outsourced business processes and facilities in sectors where security and safety risks are considered a strategic threat. We use our global expertise and our local knowledge in the assessment and management of security and safety risks for buildings, infrastructure, materials, valuables, people and society. 

We develop long-term strategic partnerships with customers in key sectors where we can help them to deliver their own business objectives through either increasing their revenues, reducing costs, managing risks, protecting critical assets or improving their service delivery to the customers they serve. We do this by understanding the environments in which our customers operate, the pressures they face and the things that matter to them most.
