Safe Zone Joins Forces with The Edge Group

Safe Zone, the manufacturer and marketer of the next-generation Safe Zone Gunfire Detection System has announced an alliance with The Edge Group, a distributor-owned buying group that connects more than 140 independent distributors with leading manufacturers in the datacom, CCTV/security, low voltage, electronic MRO and electronic OEM industries.

“The addition of The Edge Group to our sales organization means that the full benefits of superior quality, affordably-priced gunfire detection are going to be made available to a buying group that represents more than 1,200 stocking locations throughout North America,” said Mike Anderson, president of Safe Zone.

“Through the demonstrated abilities of their network, we will be better able to meet the needs of schools, offices, retailers, malls, houses of worship, among others, in smaller markets everywhere,” Anderson said.

“Reliable and affordable gunfire detection can now become an important part of a complete security system for every one of our distributor members and their customers,” said Nick Scarano, executive vice president of sale and business development at The Edge Group.

“We look forward to presenting this solution to our members. Partnering with The Edge Group means that Safe Zone now has a partner who thinks and acts like they do, addressing the challenges of middle market independent distribution by developing complete sales and marketing programs designed to drive sales to the next level of success.”
