Founded by Sam Johnson in 2005, Southern Cross Group was originally established as a small provider of customer-service oriented physical security services. Building a firm foundation as an honest and professional service provider, Southern Cross quickly gained traction as one of New South Wales’ most reputable security organisations. Using this standing, Southern Cross successfully procured marque contracts with major organisations including Lend Lease, The Sydney Entertainment Centre and Westfield Australia. Expanding on this already impressive growth, the company began to deliver services across Australia, establishing state offices to maintain its growing operational reach.
Upon becoming a national provider of security services, Southern Cross began a process of diversifying, offering clients a range of integrated services including cleaning, traffic control, facilities maintenance and concierge, and finally, establishing its very own Registered Training Organisation (RTO ID: 41086). With the ability to drastically reduce the cost of soft services to clients through collective offerings, Southern Cross have grown to become one of Australia’s leading integrated service providers.
With the construction of Southern Cross’ new Corporate Head Offices nearing completion, we look forward to a future of steady expansion and a continued commitment to customer service.
Southern Cross Group. At your service.
