ADT Awards Dallas Firm Multi-Million Dollar Contract To Produce Yard Signs

ADT Security Services, the world’s largest electronic security company, announced recently it has awarded up to a $12 million dollar contract to Dallas-based HyperGraphic Impressions Inc. to produce millions of yard signs for ADT customers.  The small Dallas company was in competition with several foreign firms to capture the business.

“ADT selected HyperGraphic Impressions because of its commitment to delivering a high-quality product at a competitive price,” said Don Boerema, ADT North America chief marketing officer. “We were impressed with the company’s attention to detail, its enthusiastic and dedicated workforce and innovative management.”

“Our company definitely takes a contrarian approach on how to compete in today’s tough market,” said HyperGraphic Impressions founder Ross H. Spicer. “We pay above market wages to our 40 workers and provide full health care benefits to our employees and their families.  Our stable and dependable workforce contributes to our ability to be competitive even with competition from overseas.”

The bright blue and white octagon shaped ADT yard signs, which will come off the assembly line at a rate of 8,000 per day, will include many quality features such as engineer grade reflective sheeting, a steel washer top safety cap, special ink to resist yellowing and a UV resistant clear coat to extend durability.

ADT needs additional yard signs because it is growing. In May, ADT acquired Brink’s Home Security Holdings, Inc., which had recently changed its name to Broadview Security.  This added an additional 1.3 million Broadview customers to ADT’s North American residential and small business operations which now serve more than six million customers under the ADT brand name.

“This contract demonstrates that innovative small businesses, who share ADT’s commitment to quality, service and competitive pricing can and will continue to drive economic growth for this economy,” Boerema said.

“This contract will allow our company to expand its workforce by up to 50 percent creating good paying jobs with benefits for American workers,” Spicer said. “This contract is an affirmation of the hard work and dedication of our workers and their commitment to their jobs and our company and our customers.”

In addition, ADT has unveiled ADT Pulse, an interactive solution which integrates home controls and security with consumers’ personal lifestyles.

“We expect the growing demand for ADT Pulse and other ADT security services to lead to additional hiring in the Dallas/Fort Worth market,” Boerema said.

ADT already has close to 1,500 employees and locations in Dallas, Irving, Fort Worth and Carrollton.
