Union Alarm – History
A little about Team Union Alarm. With our head office located in Calgary, Union Alarm was founded by team leader Graeme Browne. Together with Peter Gallant, the pair of seasoned 30+ year security experts have successfully built and established Calgary’s Contract Security Inc. (CSI), Canada’s Union Alarm Company, and the parent company Union Protection Inc.
Company – Mergers
As of 2018, the companies have merged under Union Alarm. Consequently, Union Alarm is quickly becoming one of Canada’s leading security companies. While serving Calgary and the surrounding area over the past 15 years, the company is now focused on growth beyond its Provincial borders. Watch for new branches opening soon.
Company – Growth
Union Alarm is proud to announce plans for continued growth. Currently, we are looking to open branches in Winnipeg and Edmonton. This will further strengthen our relationships and business position with multiple offices located across the prairie region. More news on this coming soon!
