Zimbabwe’s multi-award winning security industry market leader, Securico, founded by Divine Ndhlukula, celebrates its 20th anniversary this month, a real milestone in the company’s history. Speaking at the company’s special anniversary celebrations at its Harare headquarters, Divine said: “The last 20 years have been very exciting for me, for all of us and for our clients and our families. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary and 20 years of quality and excellence, we are also unveiling our new look.”
Divine Ndhlukula founded SECURICO Security Services from humble beginnings in Zimbabwe in 1998. She identified a need in the market for a quality oriented security company and she has driven SECURICO to become what is today the leading security services provider in Zimbabwe. The company’s vision is to be the world-class market leader in the provision of professional security solutions in order to satisfy both internal and external clients. It develops customized and efficient security solutions in the correct balance of on-site guards and technological interventions. SECURICO also offers new and innovative value added solutions that improve its customers’ profitability. On a personal level, Divine has tackled a previously male-dominated industry head on and her business success story is nothing short of remarkable - marking her as one of Africa's most tenacious and inspiring women entrepreneurs.
The SECURICO success story all started in a cottage 20 years ago, in 1998. Rolling up her sleeves back then, SECURICO MD Divine Ndhlukula converted her cottage into an office with four employees, before walking confidently ‘through the door’. . . into a male-dominated and openly prejudicial security industry. Armed with just a small budget, limited knowledge of security and a passionate belief that service quality, professionalism and good old-fashioned organizational skill would win the day, Divine’s SECURICO gradually started to make inroads into the industry. In 2002, SECURICO became the first indigenous security outfit to offer an asset/cash–in–transit service, while in 2005 it founded subsidiary company CANINE Dog Services. Just three years later, an impressive piece of entrepreneurship resulted in the acquiring of established electronic security systems company Multi-Link (Pvt) Ltd, a phenomenal feat considering the Zimbabwe economic crises was at its peak in 2008. Today, SECURICO is the multi-award winning industry market leader, providing superior, innovative and professional security solutions with a reputation for dependability, honesty and leading edge management thinking and innovation.
