Smith & Wesson Introduces Security Services Program At ISC East
First-time exhibitor at ISC East, Smith & Wesson, the iconic 156-year old manufacturer of handguns in the United States, introduced its exclusive licensing agreement with NationWide Digital Monitoring Co. Inc. at the company’s booth.
NationWide Digital Monitoring Co. will develop an authorized Smith & Wesson Security Services program, which will be marketed to select security dealers in the United States, Canada and Mexico beginning in 2009. The program will provide security dealers access to wireless and wired professional-grade electronic security products, branded with the Smith & Wesson name and logo, along with dedicated monitoring services. The program will allow alarm dealers and subscribers access to services and features not readily available to the general public or alarm dealers outside the Smith & Wesson Security Services network.
"We're excited to partner with Smith & Wesson, a historic company and an iconic brand name, to offer a truly unique product assortment to security dealers nationwide," said Wayne Wahrsager, president of NationWide Digital Monitoring. "Our initiative combines two nationally recognized names in the business of security. By teaming up under this licensing agreement, we provide dealers the opportunity to deliver products and services distinguished by trusted brand names that stand for first-rate quality, reliability and safety."
"We are excited about our new licensing agreement with NationWide Digital and the entry of our brand name into the market for security products and services,” said Michael F. Golden, president and CEO of Smith & Wesson. “We selected NationWide Digital because of its innovative system design and its access to and reputation with an extensive nationwide dealer network. For well over 100 years, NationWide's parent company, New York Merchants Protective Co., and Smith & Wesson, have both stood for safety and security in the eyes of consumers and professionals. Expanding on our own dedication to personal safety and protection, the Smith & Wesson Security Services program will bring the best in security offerings to dealers and their customers." said Michael F. Golden, president and CEO of Smith & Wesson.
