Shiver Security Systems is planning to move to Springboro after more than 40 years in Dayton.
The company, which has installed and monitored residential and business security systems in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky since 1971, plans to move 40 to 50 employees into a new building on West Tech Boulevard in Springboro, company president Chip Shiver said.
While still weighing technology questions, Shiver said the company, which had gross revenues of almost $10 million in 2013, expects to spend close to $3 million on the building, including a technical center where staff monitors security signals around the clock.
“We’ve been in Dayton since 1971,” Shiver said. “It just happens this site fits us perfectly.”
This week, the Springboro Planning Commission is scheduled to consider Synergy Building Systems’ plan for the 12,650-square foot office building on 1.6 acres near the Dayton Children’s Medical Center Outpatient Care Center in Springboro.
The company will close its Dayton facility, but continue to locate a 12-to-15-person sales force in Mason, he said.
“Dayton has been wonderful for us, we’ve just outgrown our space,” he said.
There will be no new jobs or incentives provided with the move, according to Shiver. While some workers could transfer from Mason, most will come from the company’s existing headquarters on Cincinnati Street in Dayton, he said.
Shiver, who lives in Mason, said the company picked the Springboro location to remain close to the security center’s workforce.
“Hopefully we’ll be in there this time next year,” he said.
