Why Granite?
We are a small but fast growing company. Our team is filled with high:energy performers who are committed to pursuing quality and embracing our customers. The two words we most frequently hear used to describe us are quality and problem:solvers. Our reputation is that of solving problems others cant.
Our core business is in four areas: Cleared Staffing, Security Design, Engineering, and Installation, Security Advisory, and Residential security.
Granite is not a big company and we do not want to act like one. Decisions are made in days, not weeks. When we find something that does not work, we fix it. We have policies and procedures like every company, but we ask that you treat the company like your own.
We work hard and have a good time doing it. We take the time to celebrate our success and our impacts on our customers. At the office, it is not uncommon to be invited to participate in a chili cook:off, celebrate a win, or enjoy an after work happy hour. You might even be invited to squeak in nine holes after work.
