Safeguard Business Unit to Provide Security Services to Granite Properties

Safeguard Security Holdings, Inc. (PINK SHEETS: SSHS), a provider of corporate and industrial security systems and personnel, announces that its subsidiary, SGI Protective Services, has entered into a two year contract to provide security services for Granite Properties in Dallas, Texas. Services that will be provided include security staffing services, and foot patrols, security concierge services and security surveys for several buildings in their new Granite Park complex located on the expanded Dallas North Tollway. Due to their high profile tenants, security is critical to their properties. Granite builds and maintains some of the more premier office sites in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.

Formed in 1991, Granite Properties is a privately held commercial real estate company with offices in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta and Denver. Granite Properties owns and operates more than 10 million square feet of real estate, consisting of a diversified product base of office, industrial and retail, both through acquisition and development. Granite also has been recognized as one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies by Inc. magazine and as the 2008 Developer of the Year by the North Texas chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties.

“SGI Protective Services continues to build its book of business with quality clients that recognize best value practices for its clients. This effort continues to enhance the Company’s presence in the marketplace and is synergistic with our overall business plan as we expand services in Texas,” stated Safeguard’s CEO, R. Michael Lagow. “We believe that there will be additional opportunities with Granite Properties as they continue to expand the corporate campus facility in Plano at Granite Park as well as other Granite owned and managed properties.”
