Press Release: Burtel Security Acquires Solid State Security of Gaithersburg Maryland


Burtel Security & Fire Celebrates 175 Years of Protecting the DC Metro Area…Let Us Explain


ALEXANDRIA, VA November 12, 2016 — Burtel Security & Fire Systems, one of the largest locally-owned security companies in the Metropolitan Washington DC, Northern VA and Baltimore areas, acquired Solid State Systems on Thursday September 29, 2016.

Award-winning Burtel Security & Fire Systems was established 44+ years ago. Solid State Security, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was established in 1937. With this new acquisition, Burtel Security & Fire Systems, (with its residential arm, American Home Security) is ever more an industry veteran. It now has a combined total of 175 years providing commercial security systems and residential security services.

Burtel credits innovative commercial security systems solutions and customer loyalty to their success and longevity. Many customers date back more than 30 years.

Owner David Jablonski relates, Over the years, many of our customers have moved to new homes, gotten married, had children, sent those children away to college – and have kept our services through it all. The fact that our customers have chosen to use our services for decades speaks to the trust, reliability and security we offer. We genuinely count it as a privilege to have continued protecting the lives and property of our neighbors and community for so many years.

Customers include residential homes, modest storefronts, goliath corporations and government. In addition, Burtel’s rich history includes securing lives and property, plus creating savings for clients. Burtel’s security solution saved a local, well-known automotive group more than $50,000 per month in stolen merchandise vs. their prior commercial security system setup.

Through all of this, Mr. Jablonski never loses sight of why he started this business. As a result, he simultaneously turns a keen eye to the future.

When asked what he sees as the next phase in security, he shares “Ultimately, the landscape of security is changing. New advancements in home automation and the capability to remotely see, secure, and control your home and business are key. A truly robust, highly sophisticated (yet affordable) security system that fits your needs seamlessly is the new must-have.”
