On December 1,
1977, Jodie and Harry Girsh started “The Protection
Center,” a retail showroom where they sold professional security equipment to the
do-it-yourselfer. Their vision was that their business would be strictly a retail operation. However, less
than four months later, in March 1978, that vision changed when their first commercial account, a powerful
Philadelphia union, wanted to do business with them and wanted them to install and service an alarm in the
union’s large office.
changed completely from that experience. Many of the patterns we see today started from the company’s very
first days in business:
The responsiveness that Girsh Alarm is
known for started with how well they listened to this client.
The focus on listening to what their
clients truly needed also has its roots in the first days of Girsh Alarm.
The continuing evolution of services
and products and the emphasis on using the highest quality equipment available have their roots in
that time as well.
The selection of the most appropriate
technology also dates to Girsh Alarm’s beginnings.
Customized solutions and the focus on
commercial accounts have their origins in Girsh Alarm’s first days.
Along the way,
Girsh Alarm has acquired the accounts of National Police Alarm Company, Lord's Security, and Sheppard Alarm.
The challenge faced now by Girsh
Alarm is to continue to create and to improve internal systems so that the company can continue to grow and
evolve while remaining focused on the high quality, customized solutions, and close client contact that is
the hallmark of Girsh Alarm.
High quality and
responsiveness has always been an important factor at Girsh Alarm. We pride ourselves on being pro-active.
For example, we have staff dedicated to following up on any activity. Our clients expect a follow-up phone
call to make certain that they are safe and to determine if any service is required; this call usually takes
place the next business day.
