Post covid

The year 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it an array of challenges and triumphs. Never have we witnessed such a devastating and historic event, touching all facets of life, compelling decisions that shook to the core. In our country, as was the case worldwide, the hard lockdown left numerous businesses with no choice but to permanently close their doors.

Looking back and considering possible methods of handling a pandemic of this magnitude, we are grateful and proud of the measures we have taken to continue operating our business, providing an essential service, and being a pillar of strength in South Africa.

Apcan has gone from a physical security services company to an innovative, trendsetting, cost-effective and state-of-the-art holistic security services provider, offering peace of mind to our clients who face various challenges in the so-called new normal.

Our advanced technology developments combined with well-trained and highly skilled asset protection officers, put us at the forefront of the guarding industry, capable of detecting crime trends and patterns before they get out of control. We are assisting various sectors, including corporations and high net worth individuals.

Apcan is known for:

  • Apcan’s effectiveness is further enhanced by the day-to-day involvement of senior management including our CEO and MD, a rare advantage.

  • Our staff always have freedom to approach members of the executive committee in critical decisions.
  • Applying upward pressure with the aim to achieve personal goals and dreams is also appreciated.
