Glazer’s is an industry leader for supply chain solutions and they have an unparalleled selection of world-class wines and spirits. One of their tag lines is, “Pouring our hearts into what we do… selling beer for a living.”
They currently provide services to 44 U.S. markets, the District of Columbia, as well as Canada and the Caribbean. With a lineage that dates back to 1909, they’ve created a reputation of helping their customers grow their businesses. One reason for Glazer’s success has been expanding their physical locations.
Kenton Brothers is proud to be a physical security provider for Glazer’s. They’ve been a valued customer for many years. They approached us about securing their latest facility being built from the ground up in Odessa, Texas.
Designing the Security Solution
We had several discussions with Glazer’s about their new facility and how operations would work day-to-day. They had concerns about potential theft, burglary, and vandalism. Kenton Brothers designed a customized solution to meet these requirements using the following systems:
- Surveillance Video
- Intrusion Alarm
- Access Control
The surveillance video system included Milestone’s world-leading video management software that is an open IP platform. With this open platform IP, we were able to design a system with cameras manufactured by companies like Axis and Avigilon that are best suited for each unique application and location to meet the customers expectations.
Bosch Security was chosen to secure the perimeter of the facility. Since Bosch is one of the biggest names in intrusion detection and the premier choice for most security professionals, it was an easy decision. They design and manufacturer some of the most powerful and reliable intrusion products in the industry.
Access control was designed using S2 Security hardware and software. The S2 platform allows seamless integration with turnstiles, surveillance video and intrusion detection if the customer chooses. It’s web-based interface also provides/supports customizable monitoring displays, automated administrative system management, event management, identity management and data management with reporting.
Now that the solution design is complete, it’s time to move to the next phase of the project.
Glazer’s new facility is about twelve hours away from our KC headquarters. We’re internally structured to support our customers, regardless of their location, with excellent service. Internal positions like purchasing agents, inventory specialists, field service coordinators, engineers and project managers are what allow us to complete projects like Glazer’s on time.
We’re proud to say that we were able to deliver this sophisticated security solution within the customers requested time frame of seven weeks. We’re also proud to be partnered with such a “spirited” company like Glazer’s. And know we can say that they are All Secure!
