Professional Security Services

Live On-Site Security

Traffic Control


We've seen it all.   Unexpected things happen. When it does, we have professionals that are used to handling a wide range of situations.  With our on site staff, we provide not only security, but respect for the community and property alike.

Allowing flow of only approved vehicles to and from the facility while maintaining good relationships with the local residents and officials. It’s important to do this because in many cases the transport routs are often small and difficult to navigate.

We use local law enforcement who are familiar with the areas and roadways to ensure safe and timely arrive of commercial equipment. The last thing you want to worry about is a delay in production due to equipment not arriving in a satisfactory time.
