SFP Security & Fire becomes ISF SFP

Issue 1 2020 Editor's Choice

SFP Security & Fire was founded in 1997 and has a long history of service in the South African security industry. In the second half of 2019, the company was sold to ISF, becoming ISF SFP and attaining Level-1 BEE status. ISF operates in the fields of programme and construction project management and turnkey solutions for development projects in South Africa and surrounding SADC countries.

Owen Smit remains at the helm of ISF SFP in the role of GM, and says the company will continue to operate independently, supplying and servicing integrated electronic access control, fire detection, fire protection, digital CCTV and peripheral equipment to its existing customer base as well as new clients. As before, the company’s goal is to provide its customers with a single systems integrator that delivers turnkey, integrated solutions.

To facilitate this goal, ISF SFP will continue to design projects from concept to ‘as built’ status, providing detailed schematics and records of equipment layouts etc. in the electrical, mechanical and electronic fields. It keeps its in-house project managers, site supervisor and installation personnel up to date with the latest advances in technology and project management processes to ensure the optimal delivery for the client.

Smit adds that ISF SFP will also make use of third-party experts within its projects when required to ensure the solution operates efficiently. This will also ensure its customers only have one number to call for support, maintenance or repairs.

While the company will deliver the solution the client requires, it has made significant investments in certain products it believes to be at the leading edge in the market. Part of this investment has been in training for staff to ensure the correct application and ongoing support for these technologies.

ISF SFP retains its offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, servicing clients nationally as well as beyond South Africa’s borders. The company currently employs around 120 people (80 of whom are based in Johannesburg) and its low staff turnover means customers work with people they know, and who also know the customer and their requirements very well.
