Total Security Doubles Manufacturing Capabilities, Adds Staff
August 15, 2011

Total Security Solutions of Fowlerville, Mich., doubled its facility to 24,000 square feet and invested more than $80,000 in new equipment, according to an August 15 release. The company also hired four people to its manufacturing and installation teams, and plans to add additional sales staff in the coming months.

"Overall, Total Security Solutions has been growing and we needed more space, more equipment and more staff," says Jim Richards, president of Total Security. "While most of our competitors specialize in one area of bullet-[resistant] glass manufacturing, we can draw on the manufacturing talent in Michigan to offer more diverse services to our clients. Versus focusing the business on steel or aluminum or millwork, Total Security Solutions works with contractors, architects and business owners to manufacture, start to finish, the exact glass they want to fit a design idea."

To meet client demands for a one-stop manufacturer, the company added new equipment to its wood shop and welding area, as well as a new water jet cutting system, vertical panel saw and metal presses.

"Increased manufacturing capabilities aren't valuable without increased packing and shipping capabilities," Richards says. "Total Security Solutions took a holistic approach to its expansion, and, as a result, is primed for sustained business growth."
