There's no substitute for quality, experience and customer commitment

Border Safeguard Ltd is a privately run company which was established in 1979 by Mr John C Wheelans. He had spent some twenty years before then working within the security industry for a well known national company. He identified a gap in the market for a family owned company that was genuinely committed to customer service within the region of the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland. The business grew at a steady and controlled rate and achieved many land marked goals.

Border Safeguard Ltd are committed to providing a turn-key service to their residential and business customers and were one of the first security systems companies in Scotland to be awarded the quality mark of BS5750, further demonstrating a continual investment in customer care and quality products.

Many of the staff employed by Border Safeguard have been active in promoting the long-term years success of the business; some have been working with the company for over 30 years. The average length of service is 18 years.

The development has been very fruitful in demonstrating the long-term goals of the business in responding to the needs and demands of the customer base right across Scotland. At the end of the end of 2013 Border Safeguard had outgrown its three previous business premises and duly relocated to a new refurbished operating facility at Ettrick Riverside in Selkirk.

Border Safeguard business approach is the key to their success, which is to be committed to customer service, and to remain accessible to both staff and customers alike. People buy from people and customers prefer to buy security services following advice from the staff and directors at Border safeguard.

Border Safeguard Ltd have now set their stall out for continuing to develop and commit to customers old and new over their next five-year business plan.

If you think you've got what it takes to become a part of the team, or if want to safeguard your home or business with our expertise or products, then we would love to hear from you.
