Protection Unit the Belgian expert in global security solutions. Founded in 1999 by Yves Bastin, we are the first wholly Belgian company in the field of private security. We remain fully family-owned and now, with a turnover of twenty-two million euros in 2016, rank number four in the Belgian security market – just after the multinationals. Protection Unit is the main company within Fact Group and is involved in both the public and private sectors with Retail being the most substantial segment. Also within the group are Fact Training and Fact Services. Fact Training delivers safety-training and the legally required Security Guard Diploma.
Protection Unit provides various resources including receptionists and parking attendants. ‘Quality’ is central to our thinking. It is at the core of our internal and external relationships and is composed of five values; Trust, Attention, Stability, Closeness and Respect. This commitment to ‘Quality’ is epitomised by our monthly review programme. Conducted by Yves Bastin himself or another board member, we review every aspect of the service we provide – paying particular attention to input received from the customer.
Our staff and the roles they perform are vital for delivering ‘Quality’. Consequently, every one of our eight hundred staff is carefully selected and great care is taken when assigning staff to a specific site or customer. We believe that it has been our significant investment in staff training and development over the years that explains why our staff turnover is so low and our clients remain so loyal.
