Protection Unit is a Belgian company founded in 2009 by Samuel Di Giovanni.

Having always been passionate about the security sector, he wanted to position Protection UNIT based on the values and certain codes of the hotel and catering sector: exacting standards, impeccable presentation, hospitality, service and discretion.

I quickly realised that it was best for Protection UNIT to go beyond a certain outdated image of the profession by incorporating the concepts of service and hospitality. The objective is for the overall experience of our customers and partners to be unique and not limited to security aspects alone. Today, Protection UNIT is positioning itself as a veritable creator of peace of mind that embodies the new face of the profession!
