The Protection Bureau, a provider of electronic security solutions such as card access, digital video surveillance, central station monitoring, fire and intrusion systems and 2010 SDM Dealer of the year, opened a new branch office in Richmond, Va.

“We’re   thrilled to expand our coverage area,” said J. Matthew Ladd, president/CEO of the company.  “We have a fairly large footprint in the area already and new branch allows us to better service our existing customers. Many of our national accounts have locations in and around the Richmond area, and logistically speaking, this was an ideal home base.”

William Castleton, branch manager was formerly with Universal Alarm and has put together a strong support team.
