MEMPHIS, Tenn.--Stop Alarms Inc. has been in business for 37 years and has never felt the need to join a dealer program.
Until now. Trae Carney, Stop Alarms president, said rapidly changing technology offers opportunities for his company to grow on the residential and commercial side, but to do that requires training for his employees. "Training used to be more of an option, now it's a necessity." He was also interested in having a "uniform product platform."
Carney became a Honeywell First Alert Professional dealer in June. Stop Alarms has 32 employees, 4,400 accounts and does $3.6 million in business annually.
