Intertech Security was founded by Chris Wetzel and a business partner to provide best-in-class security solutions for medium to large companies. The mission was to meet customers' security needs by focusing on providing solutions versus selling products. By 2004, the company grew to more than 40 employees with offices in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Frederick, Maryland.
Intertech Security became positioned for greater growth and stability with the merger of two security providers whose primary business was in residential and small commercial markets. In addition to quality employees and customers, this merger allowed Intertech Security to offer monitoring services directly to clients. Simultaneous to the merger, Ron Petnuch became president and CEO. Chris Wetzel continued in an executive role and two highly-experienced managers in sales and operations joined the company to enhance the executive team. The goal was to grow the company organically and via acquisition and to achieve a more equal ratio of revenue from projects, maintenance and monitoring.
Intertech Security purchased Equip in Frederick, Maryland. The acquisition strengthened the company's presence in Maryland and Northern Virginia.
Intertech Security acquired Hi Tech House in Naples, Florida, to provide more comprehensive service to existing customers in West and Southwest Florida.
Intertech Security acquired Access Logic in Jacksonville, Florida, as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Access Logic's primary focus is providing inspection and maintenance services of fire systems at a military installation. The acquisition increased Intertech Security's presence in the growing Florida market.
Intertech Security opened offices in Texas. The new locations in Houston and San Antonio enabled Intertech Security to better serve existing customers in Texas while gaining new customers in one of the fastest-growing regions of the country.
Intertech Security purchased Accent ESI with offices in Pittsburgh and Akron, Ohio. The new associates to Intertech Security brought expanded expertise to the company in the areas of fire systems, audiovisual systems, networking and communications. The acquisition gave Intertech Security a significant presence in the K-12 education market as well as a stronger relationship with architects and engineers.
Intertech acquired Advanced ESI of Naples, Florida, to better serve the needs of the residential customer base in Southwest Florida. The new Intertech associates have expert skills in areas of home security, lighting, home theaters and media and home automation.
Intertech Security changed its name to Intertech Ci. The "Ci" stands for Comprehensive Integration. The new name accurately reflects the breadth of technology services provided for customers and the expertise in systems integration provided by Intertech Ci.
