Security Service Provider Part of SMG Corporate Services
Shelton, CT (August 28, 2017) – Security Services of Connecticut (SSC) – already operating as an aligned company with Service Management Group (SMG) since 1975 – has unveiled SMG Corporate Services as the master brand name for both organizations.
The new name is part of a larger initiative by the collective group to define its value as a full-service provider for the commercial, retail, corporate office, industrial, manufacturing, educational, healthcare, financial and government markets.
SSC provides Security, Training, Background Screening and Investigations services; and SMG provides Cleaning, Janitorial and Property Maintenance services.
SSC is among the largest privately owned full-service security and risk mitigation firms with headquarters in the Northeast, but delivers service in a more responsive, hands-on way than most. The company has been privately owned and operated since its inception, growing through service excellence instead of acquisitions. It features exceptionally-trained security personnel and a 24-hour communication center inside its Shelton, Connecticut, headquarters.
"Nothing is changing for SSC in terms of its ownership, leadership, service teams or approach to service,” says Mike Burbage, President. “By mentioning that we are an SMG Corporate Services company, our clients will also get exposed to additional aspects of service that, similar to our security services, can ensure the healthy and safety of their building occupants."
In addition to sharing the SMG Corporate Services master brand name, SSC and SMG will also share a logo, website and slogan – Reliability At Every Level.
"Clients told us how we were perceived, and what they were looking for," says Burbage. "It became clear that they value both SSC and SMG for how dependable the groups are. From there, it was a no-brainer to simply and clearly articulate that we can be a reliable solution for them across the board."
