Kooi Security was founded in 2010 by Pieter Kooi. Pieter had long dreamed of setting up his own business and on completing his course in business studies he identified 24/7 mobile camera monitoring as a fantastic opportunity. Replacing expensive security staff with technology would save his clients a lot of money, while the technology itself offered the guarantee of higher quality and improved site monitoring. His parents, with a background of hard work in their own successful agricultural business, put in the initial investment. Kooi Security and the Unit For Observation (UFO) were born.
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of wind turbines was very quick to see the advantage of the UFO. Thanks to collaborations based on trust, Kooi Security have had a close relationship with the wind energy sector right from the outset.
The number of UFOs in service and the company’s manpower grew rapidly, and 2013 saw the opening of Kooi Security’s own monitoring centre, the Kooi Alarm Centre. The aim was to provide clients with even better service, higher quality and personal contact.
With solid foundations built up in the Netherlands, the logical next step was expansion abroad. Kooi Security’s first foreign branch, Kooi Security Scandinavia AB, opened in June 2013 in Tomelilla, Sweden.
By now the business had grown out of the building in the Netherlands, and at the end of 2013 Kooi Security moved into larger premises at Zonnedauw 10 in Drachten. This building, formerly occupied by the Nederlandsche Bank, provides an ideal location for Kooi Security and the Kooi Alarm Centre.
With a thriving market and a number of years of successfully doing business in Germany, the icing on the cake was the opening of a second foreign branch, Kooi Security Deutschland GmbH in Rastede in October 2014.
