The company was founded in 1939 by the Thompsons Family in the Vaal Triangle. We have followed a progressive growth cycle over the last seven decades and have evolved from a company that focussed on the provision of security officers to a full security provider. The same values on which the company were founded are still entrenched through the founding family’s continued involvement on both a strategic and operational level.

The Thompsons Security Group has taken a pro-active stance to economic development, particularly towards Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment. A strategic decision was undertaken in 2002 that gave expression to this commitment in the formation of Thompsons Khusela.

The structure was a true empowerment scheme as it granted long serving employees within the company an interest in a newly formed company with very little exposure to risk with the Thompsons Family, providing the infrastructure, financial backing and continued mentorship.

Thompsons Khusela is now strategically positioned as one of the foremost providers of comprehensive security solutions that are:

  • Underpinned by the best-in-class systems and processes
  • Implemented by trained security officers
  • Supported by leading-edge technology
