Framework contract with
the European Commission

Despite tough attacks, the criminals could not open Gunnebo’s safe. The attempted
robbery ended with the robbers fleeing while the money was left untouched.

Criminals foiled
by Gunnebo safe
Gunnebo safes protected assets from armed robbers,
despite four explosion attacks. The drama took place in
Johannesburg, South Africa in early November 2008.
  The attempted robbery occurred on one of South Africa’s
busiest motorways. Seventeen men, armed with AK47s
and driving a minibus and two cars, stopped a security
van. According to police, the van came under fire and was
forced off the road.
  However, despite four attacks with explosives the
Gunnebo safe – a Chubbsafes 280 L CAT 4 – remained com-
pletely intact. The would-be robbers ended up completely
empty-handed. K
