We were first established in Dunedin in 1880 as Thomas Henry Ltd. The company specialised in light engineering and from there expanded to include Locksmithing and Gunsmithing. In the 1920’s the company was purchased by Thomas Leahy Begg and renamed T.L. Begg Ltd. The expansion of this business saw the addition of lawnmower servicing and the sale of fishing, shooting and camping equipment.
The family owned and operated business continued to expand and diversify with the locksmith and sporting divisions being separated in 1990 as stand alone businesses by members of the Begg family. They became Stirling Sports and T.L Begg and Sons Ltd as specialists in their industries and well known brands in their own right.
This was further enhanced with the purchase of Complete Security Systems in 1999, allowing the business to focus on the introduction of alarms and access control. This saw the business name change to Begg Security Group.
The Begg family are still a prominent part of the business today with Mike Begg as the Managing Director and Tony Begg as a shareholder. A business that is now proud to provide all aspects of security advice, products and service to both domestic and commercial markets throughout Otago and Southland.
