As President of this corporation I am looking to expand into the additional markets of High Rise Fire system inspection and installation. My company is currently an authorized Medeco DBK (Dealer Biaxle Keyway), dealer as well as an authorized Mul-t-lock High Security Dealer. We have 2 excellent restricted keyway systems to provide our customers. I am also engaged in the pursuit of providing more in the way of Electronic Access and Closed Circuit TV systems. With the combination of having both an Alarm Company (Ace Alarm Systems) and a Locksmith company (Ace Lock & Key Co.), make my company uniquely qualified to serve the needs of an increasing demand from both the Public and Private sectors with respect to mechanical and electronic security.


I began work in the security industry in 1973. I became full owner of this company in 1984. I was the first security provider to open up a second location (1989). Our company was one of the first to make use of computers in our business. Through the ALOA program I rose to highest rank of Certified Master Locksmith (CML) the first to accomplish this in Indianapolis in (1989). Between the years of 1977 through 1988 I served numerous times as on officer for the Associated Locksmiths Of Indiana (ALOI). The positions I held were Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President, President (2 years) and Sergeant at arms. I have excellent, management and organizational skills.


1984-2002 President, Ace Security Center, Inc.

I employee 8 full time personnel. Over see operation of Ace Alarm Systems (1905 N. College Ave.) as well as Ace Lock & Key Co. (6180 N. Michigan Rd.) service is provided to the public by a fleet of 5 mobile service vehicles. The emphasis in the last 2 years is to increase the sell of home/office safes and to install electronic access control systems. In August of 2002 my company invested several thousand dollars in the purchase of a smoke detector analyzation machine thus opening yet another avenue for my company to explore via fire testing of public and private buildings.
