About Us

In 1986 Chris Mangan was an enterprising young Hamilton man who recognised the need by Waikato businesses for reliable, professional security services. He established Waikato Security, which was initially run as an add-on to his day job and supported by a trusty German Shepherd, Shae.

The business grew quickly and soon Chris was full-time in the security business, building a team of reliable, professional security guards. Currently WSS employs over 75 security professionals and there has been no slowdown in demand for Waikato Security's services.

Our company's reputation for reliable, professional security services has established Waikato Security as a New Zealand industry leader and our ability to manage nationally recognised resource levels is a significant benefit to our clients.

Although originally founded on providing security guard services, security technologies are now also an important part of the WSS business, offering cost-effective electronic security solutions to keep people and property safe.

The Waikato Security management team has encountered every security situation imaginable in the 29 years the company has been in operation and this level of expertise is not easily replicated.

We maintain a very strong community focus and Waikato Security is widely recognised as a significant supporter of many community initiatives and not for profit organisations.


"At Waikato Security we believe everyone deserves a home and workplace that is safe and secure. That's my constant focus and our team achieves it for our clients by committing fully to high standards and by putting people first in everything we do"
