Our History & Heritage
With American roots more than 160 years old, we continue to provide reliable transport, just as our founding fathers did for the earliest American Gold Rush pioneers. In 1925, Loomis introduced the first armored car (“Old Number One”) west of the Mississippi, which now resides in our Denver facility. Though retired, it still runs enthusiastically and makes occasional public appearances.
In 2001, Loomis, Fargo & Co. merged with Securitas AB, a diverse international security leader, with the intention of eventually consolidating Loomis, Fargo U.S. operations, and Securitas’ European cash-handling group—ultimately spinning off as an independent cash-handling company. In 2007, the combined international cash-handling group was renamed Loomis. Today, our international network includes 400+ locations spanning the U.S. and eleven western European countries, making us the international leader of the cash-handling industry.
