One Source Security and Automation, Inc., New Hampshire’s industry leader for security and alarm systems, announced the twentieth anniversary of the company’s founding.

Twenty years ago, in 1994, One Source Security co-founders Shane Thornton and Steve Hammes, set out in the basement of one of their homes to build a great security company; a company focused on customer service, reliability, and quality. Twenty years later they have the reputation in the industry as one of the leaders in the commercial and home security business.

Since its founding 20 years ago, One Source Security has expanded dramatically; relocating in 2008 to a larger facility, while almost doubling their employee base.
