With the addition of the new Abu Dhabi facility to the existing Dubai centre, MAF Securicor can now provide comprehensive cash processing services to all seven emirates including the transfer of cash between banks nationwide and the management of the replenishment of ATMs across the UAE.
The Abu Dhabi centre incorporates state-of-the-art access control, CCTV, vault facilities and digital security systems operated and managed through a fully computerised control centre. It is backed up by a newly purchased fleet of armoured vehicles specifically equipped for MAF Securicor to meet the security industry’s international G2 standard, a requirement under the new Abu Dhabi legislation.
Mr Angus Duthie, General Manager of MAF Securicor, Abu Dhabi, said: “We are the only security company in the UAE to have two cash processing centres. The addition of the Abu Dhabi facility dramatically cuts cash-in-transit delivery times for our customers and enables financial institutions to outsource all of their cash management operations with total security.”
“We are proud to be the only security company in the UAE officially recognised as reaching the standards required under the new Abu Dhabi legislation, an achievement demonstrated by the issue of the first a cash-in-transit license issued by the Abu Dhabi authorities.”
MAF Securicor, is a joint venture between Securicor, one of the largest providers of integrated security services in the world and MAF Investments, one of the companies in the Majid Al Futtaim portfolio.
The company, which employs 450 people in the UAE, provides services in three broad areas – cash-in-transit (which also includes the movement of precious metals and high value goods), the provision of manned guarding services and consultancy covering other security related services all to the new regulatory standards.
Among its customers are the majority of banks (local and international) with a presence in the UAE, foreign consulates, schools, construction and transportation companies. In addition it provides security services for associated MAF operations throughout the UAE including Deira City Centre, Sharjah City Centre and Ajman City Centre.
