Saturday, November 1, 2008

SAGINAW, Mich.--Audio Central Alarm, based here, celebrated its 35th anniversary in September, according to The Saginaw News.

Pat O’Brien, owner, started the business in 1973. Today ACC is the only locally owned alarm company in town and it employs a staff of 30. From its offices at 819 and 833 S. Washington, the company serves “thousands of customers” and has a UL-listed central station.

“At first, we primarily sold burglar and fire systems,” O’Brien is quoted as saying. “But now, coming right up there with them are surveillance cameras and access systems. Also, it’s become totally computerized.” Audio Central also has a guard service branch.
