History of Petitbon Alarm Company
Petitbon Alarm Company started in my kitchen in Crofton, Maryland, with my wife and I listening to a sales pitch from my college roommate. He was trying to sell us an alarm system, and after hearing his explanation, something clicked. I convinced my wife that we could start our own business using this model and help families at the same time by providing the peace of a mind of a security system.
We sold 5 alarms in 1991, and my wife told me we were heading to the poor house! We kept the faith and pushed forward. I added our business tagline, “Defense – A Family Tradition” to play off my father’s and my football careers. We are both former linebackers, and he, more notably, was the Redskins’ Defensive Coordinator. The name recognition gave me—the crazy salesman that showed up at your door—a little more credibility.
When we began doing enough business to have a full time technician, we hired Ted Bird. Two years later, we hired Lou Bodmer. Ted and Lou are still with Petitbon Alarm today! As you might guess, we have low turnover and experienced technicians. We don’t learn how to install alarms at the customer’s expense.
We have since grown our company to over 3,000 clients, providing peace of mind to homeowners, corporations, small mom & pop businesses, government agencies and places of worship.
Our core beliefs lie in our Petitbon Advantages:
These policies are a result of my belief in the Golden Rule. I wanted to treat my customers as I want to be treated.
I’ve had fellow business associates call me “crazy” for never raising fees and not locking customers into contracts. I believe these advantages set my company apart from the rest. The advantages, along with our excellent customer service and knowledge, are the reason most of our business comes from repeat business and referrals.
Today Petitbon Alarm Company is a well respected industry leader that hasn’t forgotten its roots. I, for one, couldn’t be more proud.
There really is more to purchasing an alarm than just getting the final product in record time and at the lowest cost. Before you purchase an alarm system, consider what Petitbon Alarm Company provides.
