The Austen Security Group owes its origins to the pioneering days of the diamond industry when William J Austen established a locksmith business catering for the needs of a growing Kimberley.

As the manufacturer of the first wholly South African safe in 1936, the company continued to prosper and become known for specialised locks and safes. Today, the Austen Security Group would like to have the pleasure and opportunity to provide you with a quality product and service that will protect and secure you and your assets.

The Austen Security Group provides fully integrated security solutions to homes, businesses as well as financial and government institutions. Austen is a manufacturer and supplier of SABS and UL approved safes, vault doors and specialised security equipment. Please see our products pages for more information.
