To meet high growth levels in the housing market of Montgomery and Frederick Counties, Maryland, Brink’s Home Security, Irving, Texas, is opening a new office at 5111 Pegasus Court, Suite A, Frederick, Md.

“The branch office in Frederick will not only help us to enhance local service, but will also benefit our employees and reduce expenses by cutting down on drive times to the homes and businesses we serve,” said Keith Patterson, vice president of region operations for Brink’s Home Security.

The new office will handle territory previously covered by other Brink’s branches in Sterling, Va., and Lanham, Md. The Frederick office will be headed by Brian Schmidt, general manager. In charge of system installation and service of monitored security systems will be John Weatherholtz, technical manager.
