During a family visit in Sweden, Fons Bakker discovered a number-clock in a shop where the customers could see who was next to order.

Back in the Netherlands Fons Bakker contacted the company AB Turn-O-Matic from Sweden and introduced the system at almost every bakery, butcher and grocery shop in the Netherlands.

It became a major breakthrough for the company Bavak. As result, a new company called Bavak Efficiency BV was founded. The company targeted its solutions mainly to the financial institutes.

In 1974 Fons Bakker founded the company Bavak Security. This company focused on specialized burglar-detection systems and became one of the first certified security companies in the Netherlands.

In 1978 the company moved from The Hague to Katwijk. During that period, Bavak acquired the companies Jung Bouwen & Wonen as well as PEVAC Access Control. After the integration of the companies, the name Bavak changed changed it's name into Bavak Beveiligingsgroep BV (Bavak Security Group).

In 2004 Bavak Security Group moved to its current head office in Noordwijk at the Zwarteweg 19.
