History of the Business

SFP Security and Fire (Pty) Ltd was formerly known as WS Thom and Company (Pty) Ltd, a company that supplied and serviced fire fighting equipment. The WS Thom Group of Companies was unbundled and sold to the Chubb Fire Group. Certain business units of the WS Thom Company were not acquired by Chubb. The unbundled WS Thom and Company (Pty) Ltd was purchased by Owen Smit in 2001 and the remaining service contracts were taken over. The business was not as successful as anticipated and no further service contracts were renewed.

In 2004 it was decided that the company would refocus and realign its business strategies and focus on the security and fire service industry, but more importantly, the primary focus would be to create a Black Economic Empowerment entity in which its black and previous disadvantaged employees would benefit. 


SFP Security and Fire (Pty) Ltd acquired the business interests of PyroServ CC in 1995 and employed its full staff complement to continue with the BEE program, DJ Khan is a joint Share Holder and Director of SFP Security and Fire (Pty) Ltd.

SFP Security and Fire (Pty) Ltd trading as PyroServ has evolved over the past 5 years into a fire detection and suppression specialist provider with the customer base growing  given this focus.

The company provides maintenance experience, project implementation with the back up of the main company and after sales service to corporate customers.
