Castor Vali in Kenya

Our Kenya-based company, Castor Vali Africa (CVA), specialises in Corporate Security and provides our global hub for Security Information Services. They also have significant experience delivering complex solutions for the energy sector, particularly in the more remote and insecure corners of Kenya. CVA is staffed by a capable and experienced security risk management team through a combination of international and local expertise.

We believe that safety is enabled through a better understanding of the operating environment. Our Security Information Service for Kenya provides accessible and readable reports combined with accurate and rapid security alerts to keep companies and staff well informed about security issues, threats and risks.

Our Crisis Response Service, combined with a smartphone app, connects staff instantly to our Nairobi-based 24/7 Operations Centre, manned by security professionals. This provides companies with the reassurance that all their staff can access help quickly, no matter what the issue. It also allows CVA to accurately and quickly account for the whereabouts of staff in the event of a significant incident, including terrorist attacks.

Setting up and running a business in a new country is challenging. One such challenge is recruiting and retaining the right people. CVA’s Employee Background Check service can help with this, providing swift and very affordable verification of key identification, educational and professional certification documents.

CVA’s Travel Security Service offers airport meet and greet services, high-quality 4 x 4 vehicles with security trained drivers, security co-ordinators and a range of tracking and satellite communications devices, all delivered and managed by our well-trained 24/7 operations team in virtually any African capital city and beyond.

Compliance and business ethics continue to drive our strategic vision and operational agenda as we engage with clients, suppliers and local communities on critical issues such as human rights, anti-bribery and Health, Safety and Environment. This successful alignment is the responsibility of all our personnel, led by our dedicated compliance team.

Castor Vali – What’s in a name?

Our name was carefully selected and defines who we are. Castor is the guiding star in the Gemini constellation: one of the brightest in the night sky. In Roman Mythology Castor is known as a protector of mortals and patron of travellers. Vali is a figure from the Norse pantheon, endowed with the strength to survive. This unique combination of guidance, protection and strength truly reflects our expeditionary ethos and our ability to safeguard those travelling and working in remote, frontier and complex environments.
