All Safe Technologies, based in Gulfport, Miss., and Gulf Breeze, Fla. has opened its third location.
“It is a natural progression for our company,” states Alain Jamet, vice president of All Safe.
“We are in a growth mode and we have a lot of business in this area so it was a perfect fit as we move northward in our expansion.”
All Safe was founded in 2000 by Don Williams (former owner of Phillips Doby Security-sold to Interface Security) and David Avritt, founder and CEO of SentryNet. Avritt was never active at All Safe, but devoted his energies into growing the wholesale monitoring business for SentryNet. Avritt originally started in the security business by founding Infipro, Inc in 1976 in Greenville, Miss., and later Memphis, Tenn. Avritt sold Infipro to Interface Security in 2000.
Fast forward to 2015, Avritt sold SentryNet, which was one of the larger wholesale monitoring companies in the country sold to Stanley Black & Decker, with central stations in Memphis, Tenn., and Pensacola, Fla. After divesting interests in SentryNet and taking a couple of years off, in 2019 Avritt bought out Williams interests, who was looking for retirement.
Alain Jamet and Irene Horton moved with Avritt over to All Safe from SentryNet and represent part of the core management team.
Looking ahead, Avritt is optimistic about the company’s future growth.
This is what I’ve done for 45 years. The industry has changed but, in many ways, it has stayed the same. As long as we give exceptional customer service, provide the customer with what he wants and needs, is progressive and keeps up with technology,” he adds.
“I think the security industry is a very viable business. I plan on doing that and also have a little fun along the way. Our goal is to grow organically with a few strategic acquisitions. I think you will see some pretty decent growth from us over the next 5 to 8 years.”
