Gary Cavender, General Manager of Falcon Security talks about why he thinks Falcon Security is considered on the of the best security companies in Iraq; their-offering top security services to many foreign oil and gas companies that require the highest standard possible.
He says, "First of all, we are 100% Iraqi owned; Mr. Peshraw Majid Agha owns the company. We have expat standards; we use former US military personnel to help set the standards and we then maintain those standards. We use the latest equipment; we use armored cars throughout the south and we also have some armored cars in the north."
"We use the latest equipment; we use armored cars throughout the south and we also have some armored cars in the north. We have a fleet right now of about 175 vehicles that we operate. We track every vehicle; every vehicle has a tracker so that we can tell their speed and location and they all have a panic alarm if something were to happen to them. We know immediately if someone is speeding for example. These are the types of things that set us apart from our competition. We have 3 operation centers. We run an operation center here in Erbil, one in Baghdad and one in Basra," he adds.
As to what makes Falcon Security the best security firm in Iraq, Cavender answers "There are many good companies out there but if you look back at our track record we probably have one of the best safety records of any company operating in Iraq. We hire some of the best people available as our team leaders and our medics and many of our local colleagues employees have been with us since 2004.
