Atlas Security In Good Hands

The Atlas Group was established in Port Elizabeth in 1923. The primary scope of the family business then and for the next 70 years was commercial and domestic laundry, dry-cleaning and textile dying.

Addy Schewitz conceived Atlas Security Systems in 1985. The pioneering concept was the introduction of wire free security systems and portable panic buttons. The acquisition of Sharp Security with a client base of 45 link-ups in 1990 introduced Atlas to 24 hour Control Room monitoring and reaction.

In 1993, Mike Burmeister was invited to join the company to control the operational activities, including, technical installations and repairs, control room monitoring and reaction.

Today’s monitoring Control Centre is recognized as the nerve-centre of the entire electronic security network. The South African Intruder Detection Services Association or SAIDSA, established standards and guidelines for the physical structure, equipment and operational methods of these centre’s in accordance with the requirements of both the security and insurance industries. 1994 saw the construction of Atlas’ SAIDSA approved Control Centre.

Atlas’ progressive management teams are all involved with the day-to-day functioning of the business. This ‘hands on’ approach has seen the company grow from strength to strength over the last 25 years.
