KRCL was incorporated in 2011 as Kenya Risk Consultants Limited and initially started to provide maritime anti-piracy security off the East African Coast which then expanded through the Indian Ocean. Land-based close protection, secure transport and cargo escort services followed, and our footprint now spreads across more than ten African countries. In 2014 our services diversified to include manned guarding, embedded management, offshore project support and electronic security. KRCL was licensed as a shipping agent by the Kenya Maritime Authority in 2015. Through its key staff, KRCL benefits from unrivalled commercial experience in the East Africa region together with a confidential and personal approach to business. Our track record and portfolio of work ensures the highest standards of service and protection are afforded to our clients. Across our entire range of services, KRCL utilizes an extensive network of independent specialists to meet client requirements.
KRCL has a diverse employee base from commercial security backgrounds, retired military and police staff as well as staff with shipping and clearing and forwarding backgrounds. As a Kenyan company we prioritize Kenyan employment but our project staff members also hail from South Africa, the United Kingdom and Western Europe. We have strict vetting and due diligence procedures in place and ongoing best practice updates at all times to ensure we have the correct staff for the correct projects at any time. Above all we are always conscious that staff allocated to specific projects have a background experience relevant to the client and service delivery.
We have an excellent history of operational outcomes, a strong client retention record for both shore and offshore taskings and projects. We are well on the way to offering a truly global footprint through our affiliated network of trusted service partners and our land and sea projects are expanding into new countries at a fast rate. Having started service provision as a mainly security related entity we have diversified our service portfolio due to client and market needs. Our clients continue to challenge us and we are meeting demands and expectations when called upon.
