Our History

Brink's was founded in 1859. In 160 years since our foundation, a lot has changed. What has remained is our passion. We feel responsible for performing a meaningful task: ensuring that people around the world can pay securely. Thanks to our rich experience, we are still developing solutions with our partners to continue paying securely.

The company's first stock was sold in 1879 as "Brink's Express Company," but the simpler name wasn't widely used until 1919 when the first non-Chicago Brink's branch was opened in Cleveland. 

In 1927, Brink's logos began appearing on trucks and facilities that had previously been unmarked in a new strategy to deter robberies. "Money and Valuables, Safety and Dispatch" frequently bracketed the older shield logo, underscoring the company's increasing reputation for secure transportation.
