Enhancing Legacy Business to Meet Growing Demand; 20th Anniversary September 1, 2016
HANOVER, MD--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2016) - Brekford Corp. (
Mr. Rutherford, who also serves on Brekford's Board of Directors, will retain his role as Chief Strategic Officer and Director of ATSE Product Development, which includes product design, engineering, and development of the Company's line of photo enforcement cameras. Additionally, he will manage our Vehicle Services operations and upfitting center in Hanover, Maryland, a 25,000 square foot facility with a dedicated team of technicians that perform installation and support services for a myriad of public safety technology products including rugged laptops, in-car and body worn camera systems, and e-ticketing systems.
Under Rutherford's leadership, Brekford rose to prominence providing quality installation of law enforcement products and custom solutions to preeminent public safety agencies in the mid-Atlantic region. Brekford's regular client base totals more than 100 public safety agencies at every level of government including local, state, federal and military. The Company provides custom and turnkey solutions for fleets ranging in size from one to several hundred vehicles. Mr. Rutherford will implement advanced methodologies for engineering and quality assurance, and will oversee key vendor and customer relationships to deliver technology solutions as the Company embarks on vehicle services expansion efforts.
"Returning to Vehicle Services is an exciting and challenging role for me because of my affinity for our long-time clients and partners," said Rutherford. "With the maturation of our industry leading ATSE products led by a team of experienced and dedicated engineers, I can devote more time to modernizing our upfitting business for new growth. Over the years, Brekford has established an unmatched record of accomplishment in terms of innovative vehicle technology solutions. I intend to ensure that our products and services continue to meet growing demand in support of law enforcement and other public safety agencies."
"Scott and I started the Company nearly 20 years ago and I am excited that he has embraced this important leadership role," commented C.B. Brechin, Brekford co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Vehicle Services is the benchmark that established us as a public safety solutions provider rather than simply a technology reseller. As we approach our 20th anniversary on September 1, 2016, we are doubling down on efforts to modernize and expand vehicle services regionally, and to profitably grow the business in the coming months and years."
