TRAVELERS REST, S.C.—The Addison Safety Group is a small company with just seven employees doing installation and service, but this summer it decided to take on projects that included installing fire systems in 14 area schools—with contracts for each school averaging around $120,000. The opportunity was just too good to pass up, said company president and CEO John Ratliff.
