please specify the problem by specifying the category and please note:
Actually you can only use categories listed in here:
https://developers.google.com/my-business/content/categories

Any and earlier created listing was happy to get online before Google made this new lists of categories.

The category that other business is listed is CCTV Equipment and services. We supply and install CCTV so it is important that we list for it

search the list "categories_en_GB.csv" for "Video Equipment and Services" or for "Security System" you will find several categories listed.

Thank you but there is no CCTV equipment or services as the other businesses are listed for. We would like to be listed in the same category as them which is CCTV Equipment and services.

Sorry
But it doesn't matter what you wish.
It matters NOW what Google offers business owners creating or editing new
listings.

And as you can see the one you wish isn't available anymore.

Any other businesses still having the category have them from a time before
Google introduced the listing I linked to you.
