VEI Security began as a Brinks security dealer in 2004. With good products, the backing
of a national brand and the electronics knowledge already in place at VEI, the staff began installing and servicing alarm systems in southern Indiana. Brinks offered extensive training and support, along with nationally accredited monitoring.
In 2006, Brinks was acquired by another company and VEI had a decision to make. Should they sign on as a dealer for another brand, or become an independent? VEI chose to become an independent dealer and concentrate on providing the best possible sales and service to the local community. It was an uphill battle without the name and marketing power of a national brand, but VEI stayed the course, and slowly built a loyal local customer base.
By 2009, VEI Security was growing. VEI had become a distributor of Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) in Springfield, MO, one of the top worldwide manufacturers of home and business security panels. New employees were hired to handle the increase in installations and service. New products were added, such as video surveillance and access control equipment. However, VEI still remained committed to their goal, serving the local community.
In 2012, VEI Security was purchased from the parent company, Vincennes Electronics, by Tim Wampler. He had managed VEI Security since 2009 and was ready to guide VEI Security into the future.
Currently, VEI Security has grown to service over 300 households and businesses in and around Knox County. The products and services offered at VEI are at an all time high. VEI has been able to acquire the personnel, products and suppliers to reach the forefront of the security business in our area, all while maintaining the core goal… the best possible sales and service for the local community.
Thank you to all our past, present and future customers for being a part of the VEI family over the last 10 years.
