Maxi offers an AI augmented guarding solution, which results in improved services and a cost benefit to the client.

Maxi Security was established in 1991 by Danie and Michelle de Villiers. Through meaningful skills transfer and truly transparent empowerment of our 55% Black Owned company, Maxi Phumelela Security (Pty) Ltd was established in 2001 with Patricia Mandindi and Ackim Dube having a 20% and 35% shareholding in the company. We are proud to have achieved our Level 1 B-BBE E accreditation in 2019.

Since inception, the company has seen substantial growth from its first intake of 11 employees to its present complement of 3 000 employees and learners.

Maxi Security has established itself as a leading service provider in all the major metropolitan areas of South Africa.

The growth of the company stems from organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Maxi Security has worked endlessly to cultivate a stable client base which is comprised of many blue-chip companies across the corporate, retail, industrial, warehousing, wholesale and gaming sectors, as well as metropolitan councils and parastatal organizations.

Maxi Security’s stability is largely due to the company’s intensive succession training as well as the integration of experienced black managers, resulting in a thoroughly motivated management structure. Management participates in a meaningful profit-sharing scheme, which is driven on a performance assessment basis with specific emphasis being placed on client and staff retention.


Maxi Phumelela Security is a black, women-owned security service provider operating in South and East Africa. Its 26 years in security has led to the expansion of the company’s service offering.
