Central Defense Security Opens Indiana Office Print E-mail
August 18, 2014 – Central Defense Security (CDS), a leading provider of business, retail and warehouse security, has expanded its operations with the opening of a Plainfield, Ind. office. At this location, the company’s first in the Midwest Region, CDS will provide asset and client protection for a large third party logistics firm through a multi-year contract. The company has also increased operations in Lubbock, Texas, and Little Rock, Ark.

“As part of a strategic plan for sustained growth, our team was well prepared to enter the Indianapolis market,” said Larry Carroll, Chief Operating Officer at CDS. “We could not be more excited about the current expansion opportunities for CDS and look forward to continuously providing top quality service and support for our clients.”

Upon extensive research and an opportunity presented by a current client, CDS began operations in Indiana in July. Since opening, the company has appointed Plainfield native Rodney Hughes as Branch Manager, occupied an existing office complex with plans to extend and continued to identify new business opportunities within its existing client base. This location, a heavily trafficked industrial campus of over 40 warehouses, currently supports Hughes, Campus Supervisor Victoria Lashbrook and 25 guards. 

The new development comes on the heels of an expansion at the company’s Lubbock, Texas, office. Branch Manager Grant Tyre directs over 40 guards and more than 50 off-duty police officers, and is tasked with leading various business development initiatives in the area. What was once a retail-focused market for CDS has expanded to include Texas Tech University. Additionally, the company’s Little Rock, Ark. location has seen tremendous growth as well. On August 15, CDS took over security and staffing operations for Simmons Tower and the Lyon Building, significantly increasing their footprint in the area.
 
“We are committed to being a qualified, professional security partner for all of our clients,” said Jason King, CDS Regional Manager. “That dedication, in conjunction with providing exceptional service and value, is what will continue moving us forward throughout Indiana and future locations.”
