About Us

Denis and Neville Austen’s family has played a major role in the South Africa safe and security industry since 1875.

Following the family tradition, Biltmore Safe Company was established in Johannesburg in 1992. In 1995 the opportunity arose to purchase National Safe Company in Cape Town. Since then the company has traded as National Safe Co. (Pty) Ltd and continues to deliver quality products and services at competitive prices.

We proud of ourselves in putting the customer first in every area of our operation and we feel that this attitude is one of the most important contributions to our success in the industry. We also strive to attract, select and employ competent and committed personnel to maintain and provide a consistent and reliable service to our customers.

Products are supplied country-wide as well as to neighboring states and countries worldwide. Our main factory is situated in Wadeville, Germiston and we have a branch in Cape Town with a service network of agents across the country providing service in all major cities and towns.

Due to market demand research and development is an ongoing procedure and all efforts are concentrated on improving existing designs as well as the development of new products.
