30 Years ago, Thomas Drescher purchased Security Equipment Company located in Halethorpe, MD. We have grown from 2 major manufacturer lines Ford and Alamo to selling over 30 different brands and we service all makes and models of equipment.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently fabricated the first Finn Bark Blower onto a CAM trailer. This was the first ever built in the United States.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Make sure you are dealing with a reputable company. With Outdoor Power Equipment, Safety should always be the #1 priority. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Know the value of your equipment before having major repair work completed. We do realize that there are still some very centimental pieces of equipment that our customers own, we want to make sure we are doing right by you in providing honest and fair priced work. Sometimes repairs will exceed the value of purchasing a new piece of equipment. This is a good time to talk to our sales department and see how they can help you.
