Ärlighet Vaksamhet Hjälpsamhet. Kalle Risti

  Honesty - Watchfulness - Helpful, Kalle carve

  Spring 1994  

Securitas works with remodeling of its headquarters at Lindhagensplan in Stockholm. One morning when the manager of Securitas read Dagens Industri, (a famous business magazine in Sweden) he finds a story about a modern rune carver who cut real rune stones to order.

He realized that this was the solution to all discussions about what would decorate the head office's new entrance. Glad his idea, he goes down the stairs to anchor his idea with the architect ...

... Down the stairs, he met the architect who had exactly the same idea and also has Dagens Industri in his hand.

Three months later, they heard a low thump in the head office's main entrance when the 1000 kg heavy rune stone was erected in its place.



Securitas has three red dots in the logo, one word for each spot:

Honesty - Watchfulness - Helpful

It is these words that are carved with runes in the rune stone.
