Loomis—Pay helps businesses simplify payments and increase sales

Loomis—Pay was founded to solve one huge business problem: payments are complicated.

With just one contract, our merchants get an all-in-one solution that solves cash management, card payments, local payment options, point of sale hardware en 

Customers expect flexibility in how to pay

This leads to complexity for businesses who need to handle 3-8 suppliers. 

Payments are costly and add friction

Each supplier takes a part of the pie instead of growing the business.

Service is poor

With so many separate contracts, employees don't know who to contact when things break down. 

We offer one contract, one contact, one settlement, so you so you can focus on what matters.

We're proud of our 170 year history

It all began in 1852 when Wells Fargo & Co. was founded during the California Gold Rush. The company took over the western half of the Pony Express and helped companies ship packages and move money between the American east and west coasts. 

In 1905, Lee Loomis founded the Cleary Creek Commercial Company. By using a dog sled, he supplied Alaskan miners with daily commodities and equipment and returned with gold. Twenty years later, he started Loomis Armored Car Service. At a cost of $ 8000, he produced and put into operation the very first custom made armored secure transportation vehicle later called ‘Old Number One’. The company expanded its business in the western parts of the USA and Canada. In the late 1990s, the company acquired Wells Fargo Armored. The new company took the name of Loomis, Fargo & Co.

Across the Atlantic in the south of Sweden, Erik Philip-Sorensen founded the security company ‘Helsingborgs Nattvakt’ in 1934. The company expanded fast through acquisitions of smaller security firms. In 1972, we were united under the common brand “Securitas”.

In 2001, Securitas acquired Loomis, Fargo & Co. and in 2006 the cash handling services assumed the name Loomis. 

Today, Loomis operates in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. 

In 2020, Loomis—Pay was founded to better serve our customers' card and local payment needs. We have launched in Sweden and Denmark.
