Paladin wins Integrator of the Year
Each year, a winner is chosen by SP&T News‘ editorial advisory board. They review each of the award nominees, and a winner is selected based on a number of criteria, including: innovation, diligence, customer service, the ability to work well with partners, and overall project complexity.
Paladin was awarded Integrator of the Year based on its ability to fulfill all of these criteria and more. The integrator was responsible for a perimeter protection project on behalf of BC Hydro. In this case, the client was looking for a solution that would help it significantly cut down on the number of criminal incidents it was experiencing, addressing both cost and safety issues on site. The solution, a laser detection system, deployed earlier this year, has been successful in cutting criminal intrusion to virtually zero.
“Paladin primarily started out as a manpower company, but there’s been a lot of focus on our systems division of late, and it shows,” says Guy Calb, director, integrated systems, for Paladin. “We’ve had some tremendous growth over the last year. I give all the credit to my team.”
“It’s been a long journey for sure; it’s not easy to build up an integration company. I think it really does come down to your people and processes, so we’ve spent a lot of time on each of those areas,” adds Paladin Security Systems president Ted Reid.
Paladin will receive the award on Oct. 21 in Toronto as part of a gala event. You can read more about Paladin’s project with BC Hydro in the upcoming October issue of SP&T News.
