Columbia, SC, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Today Electric Guard Dog, the #1 Theft Deterrent Service™ announced the 25th anniversary of the company.
The electric security fence company’s history began with a theft: In 1991, company founder Bill Mullis discovered his guard dog business had been robbed. To protect it, Mullis conceived and designed the first solar-powered electric security fence. The fence was so effective at deterring theft from his yard that it became popular with his existing guard dog customers and replaced the dogs. Electric Guard Dog was born.
In 2007, the business was purchased by Ulysses Management, a New York-based family office, with the intent to invest in the infrastructure of the business to serve its customer base. Additional investments were made to support faster growth, including hiring Jack DeMao as CEO. Under DeMao’s helmsman-ship, Electric Guard Dog has rapidly accelerated growth for the market-leading electric security fence company nationwide. Over the last 8 years, RMR has tripled and the company intends to triple again over the next several years.
The company has been ranked on the Inc. List for four out of the last five years, as well as ranked as one of the top 30 security companies in the U.S. on the SDM 100 List since 2011. In 2015, leading security trade publication SDM Magazine designated Electric Guard Dog their Dealer of the Year Honoree.
Electric Guard Dog CEO Jack DeMao commented, “While the numbers and the awards are fantastic, we have to thank Bill Mullis for recognizing the advantages of deterrent-based security back in 1991, as well as for creating our RMR business model. We’re equally proud of the technological advances we’ve been able to accomplish over the last eight years. The wireless communications technologies and integrated products that were once troublesome have become standard solutions that can be offered across our customer base.”
“For 25 years, companies that have invested heavily in competing technologies that announce or record crime have continued to be frustrated by relentless theft. But once EGD’s electric security fence is installed, 95% of them cite they have no external theft. That’s an accomplishment to celebrate.”
