    Electric Guard Dog Moves to Innovation Center

    COLUMBIA, SC – January 18, 2016 – Electric Guard Dog, the #1 Theft Deterrent Service™, and Holder Properties, a privately held full-service real estate developer, jointly announced that Electric Guard Dog has leased 20,500 square feet at Innovation Center, a new 110,000 square-foot premier office building in downtown Columbia.  

    The market leading supplier of electric security fences cited the move as necessary due to an increase in office staff of approximately 50%, with plans for even greater growth in the near future. Additionally, Electric Guard Dog has had 20% increase in the number of field service technicians around the country. The increases will help Electric Guard Dog continue to improve its service to customers and meet increasing demand.

    CEO Jack DeMao commented, “We chose to move to get the space we needed to accommodate the major increase in support staff we’ve made. Innovation Center has the capacity for our continued growth, and the proximity and relationship the building has with the University of South Carolina enables us to offer internships and job opportunities to students and graduates.

    This is a great strategic move for our customers, too. They will reap the benefits from increases in technology, speed and dexterity available at Electric Guard Dog in 2017 and in years to come.”

    Electric Guard Dog will be located on the fifth floor of the building and is expected to move in by March 2017.  Rob Lapin with NAI Avant represented Electric Guard Dog in this transaction.
