THIS IS OUR STORY.
Berg Protection is a dynamic security company that began in 2003, exclusively as a security company, before adding medical services to the repertoire two years later. Originally, we only covered Underberg, before expanding until today, where we protect Underberg, Bulwer, Donnybrook, Ixopo, Creighton, and Umzimkhulu. We are centred around a strong faith system and believe that every employee is 'called' to be of service to our community.
Berg Protection is more of a close-knit family than a company, with strong moral values such as honesty, integrity and passion. We prioritise caring about our community and focus on being a constant, reliable presence in the local sphere.
