In 1965, Universal began with one idea in mind – to provide unmatched services and solutions for our clientele.
Originally started as a janitorial company serving Southern California, Universal later branched out into security and operated in both the janitorial and security industries until the janitorial division was sold in the late 80s.
In 2008, the company launched two new divisions to operate under the Universal umbrella with our protection and fire/life safety companies: Universal Protection Security Systems and Universal Building Maintenance.
The systems division runs as an integration and monitoring company, while Universal Building Maintenance is an all-green, environmentally friendly version of the original company.
What began as a small, steady start many years ago has now become the largest regional security and janitorial company in the U.S., with more than 23,000 security and janitorial professionals guarding and cleaning billions of dollars in assets located across the nation.
