Local security company saw big growth in 2017


2017 was a great year for KC Security Services in Sault Ste. Marie, as new clients ,  employees and  awards came on board.

Three years ago on January 5th-2015, Daniel Laprade launched KC Security Services.

Being involved in his family business of KC Roofing, Siding & Renovations, the decision was made to continue the branding and that is how the name came to be. While KC Security Services is affiliated with KC Roofing, Siding & Renovations it is important to note the company was built from the ground up with no base of employees or contracts, just one guard (Daniel) and one patrol vehicle on Day 1.

With moderate growth over 2015 & 2016 the addition of a couple of employees was needed. Then 2017 came along.

“In 2017 the company grew from 4 employees to 12 including a new Marketing & Sales Manager, and 3 patrol vehicles. Several new clients came on board in early 2017 and o their first time clients from our beginnings are still around.” said Manager and Owner Daniel Laprade.

“We specialize in mobile patrol services and alarm response however we are a full service company that provides all types of services including event security, loss prevention, security guards, traffic control, vacation watch and more.” Laprade said.

“We are proud of how we have grown into providing a great service to the people of Sault Ste. Marie. Our focus is providing services to Sault Ste. Marie, and we will always put Sault Ste. Marie first.”

KC Security would like to thank their clients for supporting them over the years, and  look forward to serving you for many years to come, including new clients!

After working hard to build a successful and reputable brand in Sault Ste Marie, you have given us the honour of being named 2017 BEST SECURITY COMPANY IN SAULT STE MARIE!

The honour to be given this award, along with our 2017 Top Three Rated award earlier this year has been a great accomplishment. In the 3 years I have owned this business, I have worked many tireless days and nights thinking if I was going to make it or not. Perseverance and determination has gotten me to where we are today as the best security company and the fastest growing one in Sault Ste Marie.

Of course this all isn’t possible without the help of my partner, our supervisors and great employees who truly make the difference here at KC. Also a special thank you to all of our clients that have and continue to support us, without you this wouldn’t be possible. You all gave us a chance, and we are proud to call you a client and part of the family. Also a special thank you to my parents who own KC Roofing Siding Renovations, the inspiration behind the KC brand.

“We look forward to continuing to grow here in SSM and throughout Northern Ontario, as the KC brand continues to be strong.”

But wait it doesn’t stop there!

After 18 years in business the sister company KC Roofing, Siding & Renovations has built a reputation of being one of the best and biggest roofing companies in Sault Ste Marie. I am proud of the success of my father Claude and stepmother Kim on building this company from the ground up. It is with great pleasure I also announce for the second time in 3 years, KC Roofing Siding Renovations has been awarded 2017 BEST ROOFING COMPANY IN SAULT STE MARIE!
