Virginia security provider having ‘best year ever’

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

When I wrote about Richmond Alarm last summer, it was having a good year. The Richmond, Va.-based, family-owned, full-service security company had grown its footprint into Eastern Virginia with a new acquisition, making that company the largest locally-owned security provider in the state.

But 2012 is turning out to be an even better year for Richmond Alarm. Not only did the company celebrate its 65th anniversary this year, but it also won Chesterfield County’s business of the year award this summer.

Also, according to the story this week in the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper, revenues are climbing since they flattened out during the recession. “The calendar year 2012 will be the best year ever,” company president Wayne Boggs is quoted as saying.

Richmond Alarm, a Honeywell First Alert dealer, was awarded the 2012 First Choice Business of the Year Award in July, according to its website. It says the award “recognizes companies that consistently contribute to Chesterfield County through community service, innovative products and services, job creation, tax revenue and ethical business standards.”

RICHMOND, Va.—Richmond Alarm this month sold a home theater/home audio business that it purchased two years ago to a local home technology integrator.
The sale to Livewire of NSN Technologies took place July 18, said Wayne Boggs, president of Richmond Alarm, a Honeywell First Alert dealer based here.
NSN did not perform as expected after the bottom fell out of the new housing construction market in the recession, so the offer by Livewire to purchase the business benefited both companies, Boggs told Security Systems News.

The controversy surrounding Article 6-E—proposed legislation in New York that looks to vet and license central station employees according to statewide standards—has many in the industry talking about central station employee training. There are plenty of virtual and classroom training options provided by industry associations like CSAA and SIA. And, many monitoring companies take full control and create their own training programs for employees.
