Establishment of the HUNTERS Detective Agency
Antoni Żyłkowski establishes the HUNTERS Detective Agency. Initially, the company dealt with escorting cash values, providing protection services for companies and controlling the client’s employees. From the beginning the agency employees were also subject of control. In addition, debt collection services were provided.
The company’s first logo has at that time the main objective of its activity – a detective agency.

One of the first investments is to building a communication mast, expanding the fleet of cars and expanding the company’s headquarters with the monitoring station in Grodzisk Wielkopolski.
