Systems Integrator InterTECH Security Grows into a Larger Facility

Aug. 29, 2005
Five-year-old company to move Maryland offices to keep up with growth

Security systems integrator InterTECH Security has begun their move into a larger facility in Maryland to accommodate the company's continued growth.

InterTECH was recognized by the Pittsburgh Business Times in 2004 as one of the fastest growing firms in Pittsburgh, and as one of the area's "Best Places to Work". The company has been repeatedly recognized as one of the "Top Systems Integrators" in the industry by trade publications.

InterTECH currently operates offices in Warrendale, Penn.; Morgantown, W.V.; and Gaithersburg, Md., and will be moving all Gaithersburg operations to the significantly larger Frederick space.

"We're really excited about the response in Maryland and DC. What a great market," said Christopher Wetzel, InterTECH's Founder and Chief Operating Officer. "We're sticking to a model that has worked for us in the Pittsburgh area, and it's working out for us."

That model includes three basic areas of focus - security systems, fire alarms, and nurse call systems. InterTECH works with a very large number of what they call "supply partners" to stay as close to vendor-neutral as possible when engineering their clients' safety and security systems.

"I'm proud of the way we do things here, and I think our customers appreciate it," added Wetzel. "A lot of engineering goes into our recipe, and that means keeping track of a lot of product details. But, being a five year old company - and having the kind of presence that we have - has to say something for us."

InterTECH's Frederick office, on Grove Road, will officially open for business on September 1.
