Expansion comes at a time of record growth for the company, identifying Miami as a secondary operational hub
DOYLESTOWN, PA (September 20, 2022) ‒ 215Secure, a leading security services company for commercial and multifamily dwellings, has expanded its operation with a new office based in West Palm Beach, Florida. Under the brand ‘305 Secure’, the company will serve customers in the rapidly-developing commercial corridor along South Florida.
As part of the launch, 215Secure has appointed Fred Spratt as general manager to oversee business development and customer service for a growing roster of clients in the region. Spratt spent 15 years as a territory sales manager at security manufacturer Assa Abloy prior to joining the company.
“When we started our business nearly two decades ago the goal was to provide peace of mind to business owners and property managers who have the stress and responsibility of protecting hundreds of people from unknown threats,” said 215Secure President & Chief Executive Officer Dave Pearson. “Today that mission is clearer than ever and market conditions have allowed us to expand to meet demand, with both new service offerings and an established office in South Florida.”
215Secure sells, installs, and manages the technology behind access control systems, video surveillance, intrusion alarms, virtual guards, and other industrial-grade tools to protect businesses and building tenants from theft and other crime. During the pandemic, the company has expanded its technology capabilities to include robots and video analytics to help identify and prevent would-be criminals. Between 2020 and 2021, the company’s revenue increased by 56%, putting them in a position to forecast additional hiring for 2023.
“We unfortunately live in an era when criminals are emboldened and have their own set of technology to penetrate most security systems,” said Spratt. “This is an opportunity to fight back against a historic outbreak in theft and criminal activity and my industry experience and local knowledge of Miami-Dade County – the 305 – makes this a natural extension of the work Dave’s team is doing in Pennsylvania.”
The multi-family development boom in Miami has been met with commercial development tailwinds as well, with more than 233,000 square feet of office space under development in the neighborhood of Wynwood alone.
“This unprecedented growth needs to be paired with best practices for safety and security,” Pearson added. “We are in a position to support this wave of change and ensure the quality of life that workers and tenants deserve.”
Founded in 2005, the company built its business to support consumers and businesses navigating the market for tools and technologies to protect their homes and offices. With a footprint in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, Delaware County, Chester County, and Gloucester (N.J.) and Camden (N.J.), 215Secure recently expanded to deliver best-in-class security solutions to South Florida. The family-run business is focused on delivering innovative security products and services, including video surveillance, intrusion alarms, virtual guards, and facial recognition tools.
