Company History

Established in 1992 as Enigma Vehicle Systems, we have a proud history of protecting plant machinery and assets, and vehicle fleets across the globe. When the company was founded physical security of vehicles, machinery and assets was the primary concern of the fleet and plant industries, however has needs and requirements changed we evolved to meet them.

In 2013, the company was rebranded Enigma Telematics after a shift in focus to fleet management, and vehicle and plant telemetry. Following the rebrand we merged with Italian Telematics group, Viasat Group S.p.A in 2014, which opened new opportunities for in additional markets as well as allowed us to integrate our expertise into the Group’s repertoire.
