From being a single company manufacturing specialized security products it turned into a broad-based group of companies covering not only many aspects of security but fire
protection as well.

 In March 2007, UTC bought Initial Fire and Security, the security arm of Rentokil Initial and proceeded to merge the business and its assets with Chubb in UTC Climate,
Controls & Security.

 In 1835, the company produced its first Chubb safe at its factory in Wolverhampton, UK and, in the second half of the 19th century, the company expanded into the United
States, and produced a time lock that was fitted to bank vaults across the country.
