The industries we work in
From education to mining and corrections, find out more about the industries that benefit everyday from Gallagher's integrated security, business efficiency and continuity solutions.
Our story began in Hamilton, New Zealand way back in 1938 with a horse named Joe.
When Joe took too much of a liking to using a car as a scratching post, his owner, Bill Gallagher Senior, started looking for a solution. He devised a cunning electrical circuit that delivered a harmless – but startling - shock whenever the horse rocked the vehicle. It quickly cured the problem and sparked the idea for the world’s first electric fence.
Today, Gallagher Security is a global leader in integrated technology solutions that help organizations around the world protect, secure, and manage people and assets. Our award-winning solutions are trusted by government, defense, commercial, industrial, healthcare, transportation, mining, and educational organizations in 140 countries.
