Security Central, Statesville, N.C., a family-owned UL and FM approved central station, recently completed a significant expansion and renovation of its central station.

By adding on to its facility and reconfiguring existing space, Security Central increased seating capacity for its operators by 60 percent, according to Ellen Brown Meihaus, co-owner of Security Central.

As part of the project, the company also installed a new electrical infrastructure, including APC enterprise UPS systems and 180 kW Kohler diesel generators, to ensure its power delivery meets the critical needs of its dealers.

“We are here to stay and grow, which is why we make continuous investments in first-class facilities, the latest technologies and the best employees,” Meihaus said. “These improvements to our network and power systems provide dealers with best-in-class monitoring.”

Meihaus said that before expanding its facility, Security Central had been near capacity in its central station.

The new facility increases Security Central’s capacity to monitor more accounts and provides a more comfortable work area for employees, Meihaus said. She said that the company plans to expand its workforce as it adds accounts.

It declined to disclose the total cost of the expansion and renovation project, which took eight months to complete.
