The second decade in Estonia
Rapid Security was founded in 2002 by local entrepreneurs from Narva, who operated in the company until 2008. The company was then sold to Mats Gabrielsson, a Swedish company related to Kreenholm, and the company became a subsidiary of Rapid Säkerhet AB, owned by Gabrielsson Invest AB.
Mats Gabrielsson is a big fan of Narva, who contributes a lot to the development of the former Kreenholm area – the best example of this is the renovated gatehouse of the Kreenholm factory, where 10,000 employees a day passed through during the heyday of the textile factory and which today is home to Rapid Security. Mats Gabrielsson also has a production company Giab Machining OÜ in Narva and a real estate development company Narva Gate, which is developing the Kreenholm industrial area.

Help from artificial intelligence
Customers are offered special solutions. The aim is to replace human labor with artificial intelligence, for example, the gates do not have to be opened by a security guard sitting at the factory gate; this operation can be done automatically via a video camera. In addition, the operator of the control center can talk to the customer via a video camera, if there is a blockage behind the gate or if the cameras realize that there is something wrong in the guarded area.
In short: Rapid Security programs a variety of surveillance and video systems to help reduce labor shortages, while unemployed security personnel can go to productive and higher-paying jobs.
