From humble beginnings in 1973, Gary Owen launched a small, successful security business from his home in Calhoun, GA. The company quickly became one of the largest electronic security companies in the State. From the beginning, Gary focused on staying one step ahead: one step ahead in technology, one step ahead in customer service, one step ahead of the fires and break-ins, and one step ahead of the competition. Today this same commitment is exemplified throughout the entire organization, from our administrative team to our customer service representatives and skilled installers. Today, as well during our early days, we remain one step ahead, serving our residential and commercial clients from one of our four offices: Calhoun, Dalton, Cartersville, and Rome.
Though Owen Security Solutions has undergone many changes over the years, it remains a family-owned business with the same core values. Currently under the leadership of Justin Owen, our company continues to apply a family-based approach to doing business, focusing on the highest level of customer service, implementing cutting edge technology and giving back to the communities which we serve.
We understand that we owe so much of our initial and continued growth to our loyal customers and the communities in which they reside. We are committed to giving back our time and resources by supporting our community. You may see us at a ribbon cutting for a new business or sponsoring a local charity. Our goal is to not only protect our communities but support economic growth and help those in need. We work hand-in-hand, collaborating with industry trade associations, businesses, and non-profit organizations, such as: Electronic Security Association, Georgia Electronic & Life Safety Systems Association, Bartow-Cartersville Chamber of Commerce, Gordon County Chamber of Commerce, Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce, Gilmer County Chamber of Commerce as well as the Cartersville Rotary Club. Additionally, we have a Georgia unrestricted low voltage license and our staff is N.I.C.E.T. certified.
