Allied Universal® is proud to be a trusted partner to more than 400 of the FORTUNE 500. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do. 

We’re committed to fostering strong partnerships with our clients. For example, for more than a decade, we have nurtured and sustained a partnership with Shell.  

Our successful partnership with Shell is a direct result of our “one team” approach, built on transparency, honesty, integrity, accountability and collaboration with a goal of maintaining top operational effectiveness. 

When Shell decided to maintain a single source global security provider, we were honored that – rather than pursing a competitive rebid process – they chose to renew with Allied Universal and our international business G4S.

The new five-year contract is for services in 35 countries. With a leadership team dedicated to managing the Shell contract, we’ll deploy nearly 2,500 employees globally who will work a combined 110,000 hours-per-week.

Our work with Shell includes guarding their team members, facilities, projects and events. 

We’re improving Shell’s global safety performance and any lessons learned are shared rapidly worldwide.

Exciting, innovative things are happening because of our strong partnership with Shell. 

Together, we’re exploring the use of drones, robotics and other technologies to improve safety and operations. We also are partnering on sustainability projects to reach our shared net zero emissions goal.

It’s through unparalleled relationships, like we have with Shell, that enable us to deliver innovative solutions, cutting-edge smart technologies and tailored services that enable our clients to focus on their core business. We become their first line of defense, identifying threats in real time and planning for the unplanned. 

With operations in more than 100 countries, Allied Universal is a global company that thinks and acts locally. 

While our vast reach allows us to always be connected, aware and ready to act, local management at our more than 1,400 branch locations is tied to the community and committed to building lasting relationships with our clients – all while benefiting from the resources of a global organization. Our size and scale allow us to bring capabilities that smaller providers cannot.
