Our Chairman's Statement
Our Chairman's Statement
Over 3,000 employees servicing thousands of customers throughout the Caribbean region and protecting billions of dollars in assets is not easy under any circumstance! If one factor in the challenges that our industry faces around issues of education, economic status, and other intolerances, our achievements are unmatched over the years! At times it seems that just keeping the lights on is a major accomplishment. But it is the staff, this team of professionals with their diverse, and unwavering dedication, and hard work, who make it happen, 24-7.
Our successes are also due in part to the notion that "you achieve according to what you believe." And over 25 years later at Amalgamated Security Services Limited, we believe that our people are still the most valuable assets. Through an extensive selection process, with training, and the right supervision, our officers are the best in the field, and we continue to strive in maintaining the best, for the best! We believe that affordable security whether electronic or manpower is a right, not a privilege and providing security and safety, remaining affordable, with top-notch quality service, is what distinguishes us from the rest.
We do know we have made a difference in people's lives and our client's interests because we get just the right amount of feedback and support from the customers and the public just when we need it.
This homegrown security company has competed against several international companies and have repeatedly outshone them, reaming proud of our heritage and the knowledge that we are good at what we do irrespective of the completion.
We have indeed come a long way since 1983 and we have managed our growth carefully. A few measures show: then we had 10 staff and today we have approximately 3,000 staff, then we had 2 vehicles and today we have over 150 units, we operated out of one office and today we are countrywide with over thirteen bases and have extended regionally.
We will continue to manage the basics as well as our number one job. This is our quality assurance pledge to our customers and the public at large: Prudent fiscal management of our resources, sound routine maintenance, and wise capital investments and improvements all leading to success while remaining the number one security and electronic service and product provider.
Amalgamated Security currently operates an office on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia and Antigua, where our staff will continue to be increasingly diverse building on the solid foundation we have in place today, where all of our senior management are Certified Protection Professionals (CPP), a certification exam considered to be the highest level one can achieve in the security industry worldwide.
