Why the Meerkat logo

Meerkats are much smarter than they look! On the outside they seem timid and unassuming, but do not be fooled, as these small creatures have big personalities with unmatched tenacity. These little mammals will do anything it takes to survive, with many hidden tactics used for survival.  Being small animals, they are seemingly the perfect prey for a snake, but no, meerkats are immune to most snake venom. Even when put in the toughest of situations, the meerkat will come out stronger. Unbelievably meerkats do not need extra water in their diets as all the moisture they need they get from the insects and grubs they eat.

SSC Legacy

Study shows that meerkats engage in wide varieties of social and asocial behaviours to solve tasks, with the help from their mob but also with a bit of independent thought. Besides being tremendously brave and extraordinarily intelligent, meerkats work as a collective, called a gang and form genuine connections and create ways of living as a group.


SSC Legacy uses these animals as our logo as they represent some of our most valued qualities and we will do anything it takes to ensure the safety of your company.


Our close-knit team functions together, as a whole, to strive through the means of trust and teamwork. Meerkats inspire us to try our very hardest, do our best, and come out with success. Our gang aspires to be as tenacious, ferocious and gregarious with our work as meerkats are.
