Bridgeport, CT | July 12, 2016: A+ Technology & Security Solutions, Inc., a pioneer in video security and technology integration specializing in the convergence of physical and IP video security, today will celebrate its expansion from Long Island with the opening of its New England Headquarters in Bridgeport, CT. Located at 1027 Fairfield Avenue, A+ Technology and its affiliated businesses have built a state-of-the art technology showroom and STEM education technology manufacturing facility within a 7,000 square foot, fully renovated space. The building will serve as the company’s New England headquarters in the center of Bridgeport’s emerging high-tech community, from which sales and support of its integrated security, audio/video, LED lighting and IT infrastructure solutions will be conducted. The opening of this facility signals the first step in creating a high-tech ecosystem within Bridgeport, as the company that currently provides the technology to secure the city’s schools, parks, ports and public spaces will now also offer internship opportunities to local high school and college students, and ultimately provide career opportunities to the community’s technology-savvy graduates. A grand opening celebration, scheduled for today, July 12th, will be attended by community leaders, dignitaries and business officials representing the public and private sector, who will share in the festivities. Mayor Joseph Ganim will assist in the official ribbon cutting ceremony. "The arrival of A+ Technology to Bridgeport is a very good day for our city," said Mayor Ganim. "This means at least 20 new jobs created and further strengthening the important work this company does to keep our city and schools safe. We welcome A+ to Bridgeport, we're glad they chose our community as the location to open this facility, and we look forward to a long and successful partnership!"
The office will be headed by Jorge Garcia, Director of New England Operations, who formerly served as the City of Bridgeport’s Director of Public Facilities and Construction Management. The office will initially be staffed by 7 full-time employees, with plans to increase that number to over 20 in the coming year.
A+ Technology is recognized as an industry leader in the implementation of “safe cities” technology, having been honored with the 2014 Security Innovation Award – Municipal Sector for its work with the City of Bridgeport. In addition, the company is recognized as a leader in providing security solutions for K-12 Districts and higher-ed campuses, most recently completing a campus-wide, $1.4 million security upgrade for Boston’s Endicott College.
“From our new facility, we will provide our industry-leading security services to clients in the region, as well as provide sales and support of a wide breadth of the latest network-based technologies, including LED lighting, audio-video presentation and communication solutions, and IT networking and infrastructure design. And we couldn’t be happier to be spearheading these efforts from our new offices in Bridgeport, where today we will begin generating economic activity and provide local support to the community that has embraced us,” said David Antar, President and Founder of A+ Technology and Security Solutions. Jorge Garcia adds, “We remain pledged to bringing our technology and solutions to industry, government and schools in Bridgeport and throughout New England, and are pleased to be playing an integral role in helping to create a safe and vibrant high-tech community here.
