About CPI | Office Building | CPI Security

Our success starts with our foundation

Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, CPI Security was founded in 1991 on an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for helping and protecting others. What started as a company of 10 employees and 300 customers has grown into one of the nation's top 10 largest security providers with over 750 employees.

Over the years, CPI has received many awards for excellence, such as twice-awarded SDM Dealer of the Year, Central Station of the Year, and the Marvel Award. The company leads the industry in alarm response times, is consistently ranked in the top 10 of electronic security businesses, and is widely known as North Carolina and South Carolina's Top 25 Best Places to Work.

Our diversity makes us stronger

In every aspect of our culture, CPI Security focuses on access, opportunity, and equality for all. We remain committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce that helps us better serve our communities across the southeast region. And we continue to make sure every unique voice and background is represented, heard, and respected.

Our employees are trained on fairness and inclusion at work, and we reinforce that employees always treat customers with empathy, respect, and fairness.

In addition, CPI continues to take steps and work with local organizations to positively impact the diverse communities we serve through outreach, engagement, and partnership.
