ATLANTA-BellSouth from Protection One's Memphis operation moved to a new, larger office at 5175 Elmore Road, the company announced last week.
This is the fourth time this year that the company has relocated an office to a larger facility.
Protection One's business model changed from being dealer-based to establishing a full-service approach over the past few years. This has resulted in the need for additional room for sales and other personnel, showroom space and room for future growth.
In 2001, BellSouth from Protection One was formed as a partnership between telecommunications company BellSouth and full-service security company Protection One. It offers security systems and services in nine states in the Southeast.
In August, Security Systems News reported that the company relocated its Pensacola, Fla., office. It also reported that Protection One significantly reduced its outstanding debt since it was purchased in 2004. Moving and expanding branches is part of its growth strategy.
