Vector Security Inc., Pittsburgh, was named “Supplier of the Year” by office supply retailer Staples at the 2014 Staples Global Loss Prevention Conference in Mystic, Conn., in September. The award recognizes Vector Security for supporting Staples’ cost savings strategy. Using its trademark consultative approach, Vector Security experts listened to the customer’s needs, then crafted a security solution to meet the customer’s corporate objectives.
