Energetic growth for super-regional


Select Security, a super-regional based in Lancaster, Pa., lately seems like the “Energizer Bunny”: It keeps growing and growing and growing.

One of the top 100 security companies in the nation for the past three years, Select Security, a Honeywell First Alert dealer, has made several acquisitions and piloted a summer sales program, all of which have led to record growth, the company said.

Now, according to a recent announcement from the sales, service, and monitoring security company, it has been named by Central Penn Business Journal as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in central Pennsylvania.

Here’s more from Select Security:

“The CPBJ Top 50 list represents the best of the best when it comes to businesses headquartered in central Pennsylvania. In order to be eligible for consideration, companies are required to show revenue of at least $500,000 in each of the fiscal years ending 2008, 2009 and 2010, as well as revenue growth in 2010, as compared to 2008. The list ranked the companies according to revenue growth over the three-year period, with both dollar and percentage increases taken into consideration. This ranking formula led to the list of winners, including Select Security.

“Select Security has shown enormous growth over the past few years and I think that reflects the reputation we have built in the community,” said company president Patrick Egan. “Our customers see the quality of our work and recommend us to their friends and neighbors, which is the best kind of advertising.”

Egan said he expects to see the company make the [CPBJ] list again next year, as it continues to put emphasis on its best-in-class customer service and the latest technological breakthroughs.”
