Axel Protection Systems Inc.
Highly responsive and accountable service
Axel Protection Systems Inc. has been protecting buildings and assets for construction industry clients for more than 20 years. In addition to providing world-class customer service, the company is staffed with knowledgeable, up-to-date managers and uniformed, unarmed, security officers who readily respond and adjust to clients’ needs.
“In the construction industry, things are always changing. When clients call us, they know they are going to reach us right away,” said George Larson, President of Axel Protection Systems Inc. “Our consistent responsiveness enables them to put their trust in us.”
The company gives its clients the cell phone numbers of managers who serve as a single point of contact and respond to their needs 24x7, he explained. For example, a client may need to prepare and protect space for a crane that is arriving earlier than expected. They are welcome to call a manager at 4 a.m. to get the qualified security guards they need immediately.
Certifications & Regulations
In addition to meeting the ever-changing needs of customers, Axel Protection Systems Inc. keeps its staff up to date with the regulations and certifications needed to perform general and specific duties.
“Regulations are always being updated and guard licensing has many changing rules,” said Larson. “We make it our business to stay on top of those things so we can provide our clients the personnel they need, when they need them.” For example, all of the company’s security guards and managers have obtained their FDNY Fire Guard Watchperson S60 certification, which qualifies them to watch for fires in the buildings they protect. Several guards also have F60 certification, which enables them to guard places where welding equipment is being used. Others have S92 certification, which enables them to guard rooms that are being heated to pour concrete. Current safety training is important, too. All Axel Protection Systems Inc. personnel working at construction sites have OSHA 10 certification.
Experience & Accountability
With two decades of experience in the construction industry, Axel Protection Systems Inc. knows the needs of its clients. “The company, which was entrusted to guard the deconstruction of Shea Stadium, protects all sizes and types of premises at great rates,” said Larson.
“We know they don’t want employees coming back after hours and whether or not they want us to accept deliveries and so much more,” explained Larson. “They don’t have to teach us to do what they need.” Axel Protection Systems Inc. also knows the many vulnerabilities at construction sites and takes immediate action to identify and close those gaps. In addition, guards are held accountable for their work by a computerized monitoring system that ensures they are patrolling each site as directed.
Larson, who leads the growing company of approximately 280 security professionals, is an American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS) Certified Protection Professional (CPP) and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He is dedicated to providing every client with the security services they want and deserve.
