JEFFREYS BAY received a welcome boost in security resources after a local security company had been incorporated into one of the country’s leading security groups.

KB Special Eye Security (KB) is part of the Fidelity ADT-family since the beginning of May 2017.

This amalgamation gives residents access to state of the art resources and industry leading technologies whilst enjoying the personal touch of a localised security participant.

“This amalgamation is a major boost for security in Jeffreys Bay,” says Ryan Britz, Branch Manager for Fidelity ADT in Jeffreys Bay and Port Elizabeth. “Customers of KB will now receive the same high quality SAIDSA approved security services that are already enjoyed by Fidelity ADT customers across SAand will include value added services such as emergency medical assistance, Find U personal protection and safe entry services to name but a few.”

One of the most exciting innovations, explains Britz, is a local community information centre (CIC) launched earlier this year to service the Jeffreys Bay and PE residents. The CIC gives residents one single number to call for help with reporting criminal activity or other concerns, which Fidelity ADT will respond to or disseminates to the relevant public stakeholders with the objective of improving the security environment in the community.

Clients of KB will receive visits from their Fidelity ADT armed response officers in coming weeks to introduce themselves, whilst noting a change in the company’s branding and logos in the community soon. The amalgamation sees the number of Armed Response vehicles increase in the Jeffrey’s Bay area with a few new Fidelity ADT faces and various familiar faces of KB Team that has joined forces with the Fidelity ADT Team as a result of the amalgamation.

“We are extremely excited about opportunities for the former KB Team and the customers that have been supporting us over the years, and we are looking forward to the additional value that we can add to the community as part of Fidelity ADT” says Micheal Hattingh, former KB Armed Response officer and lifelong resident of Jeffreys Bay.

The acquisition of KB follows short on the heels of the acquisition of ADT Security by the Fidelity Security Group earlier this year, which saw two of the security industry’s biggest role players joining forces under the management of CEO, Wahl Bartmann, offering a vast range of personal and commercial security services across the country.
