Union of Security Structures "Tower" Security Company was established on 26 October 1996. The origin of the company name is of some interest.
In 1985, the founder and the General Director of "Tower" Security Company visited Arkhangelsk Region as a tourist. Together with his friends, he went canoeing there. One day he met a hunter in that remote area, who gave him an old musket, or rather what was left of it - a trigger mechanism and a barrel which he had found in a semi-destroyed hut with a help of a portable metal detector. The word TOWER was engraved on the musket barrel. The hunter explained that the visitor might need the thing in the future... These words were recollected more than ten years later, when the company founder was establishing the enterprise and there came a question of the name for it.
The musket turned out to be an old one, made in England in 18th century, which was later confirmed by an expert of the Armoury in Moscow. In those years Russia had a lot of trade with England, so quite possibly one of the soldiers guarding the trade caravan lost or sold his weapon in Arkhangelsk region. In that way, the musket, which once used to be a guardian's weapon, has become the symbol of a security company - Union of Security Structures "Tower".
The company unites three specialized enterprises which provide a comprehensive range of services in safeguarding customers' security, and also design and install security and fire alarm systems.
The use of advanced technologies and the implementation of new methods of work in the branch of security have made it possible for the company to become a participant of "Emergency Assistance" programme (since May 2008). The programme facilitates providing round-the-clock practical, consultative and information assistance in any problematic situation, like legal assistance and conflict solving, personal security protection, emergency help in case of a car crash, and other swift assistance from a group of immediate reaction in every area of the Russian Federation.
It is thought that many companies which have worked for a number of years on the market of security services and gained recognition and stability, gradually lose the incentive for further development. Companies which have made themselves a name and a positive image feel quite calm and certain while sometimes missing important moments in the area of providing security services. Security Company "Tower" has a principally different point of viewpoint.
The development strategy of the company - "Don't stop on what you've achieved! Strive to be the best!" - is successfully put into practice in all the professional activities. For instance, the carefully thought-out policy on human resources and the thorough training of the qualified personnel make it possible to ensure high quality of the provided services. That is why the number of customers is steadily raising while the long-term customers have been loyal to the company for many years: the company deserves the trust and respect of its customers.
Union of Security Structures "Tower" can provide the following services:
- design, installation and servicing of the security and fire alarm systems and video surveillance systems

It will make it possible to send an emergency signal (of a crash, assault, failure or other) to the security company of the region where the vehicle is currently present. Security Company "Tower" has been using a satellite system of tracking mobile objects for a number of years.
The high level of provided services has been proved by an independent expert organization "Rostest" which issued a certificate of compliance to the Union of Security Structures "Tower".
