Valley Alarm’s CEO, Robert Michel, spoke of the company’s commitment to the San Fernando community and to its own employees through a culture of service and personal and professional growth.

Valley Alarm’s renovation of the historic 1931 building was a complete building makeover, including a new roof, HVAC systems, electrical and plumbing renovation, advanced lighting, paint inside and out, refinishing of all natural historic wood, a new decorating scheme, and last but not least, a change of use from banquet hall to office building.
