Warrendale, PA (PRWEB) November 18, 2005

Chris Wetzel, founder of InterTECH Security, LLC a Pittsburgh area based security integration company, announced today the merger of InterTECH with security industry entities owned and managed by Petnuch Partners, also of Pittsburgh. Petnuch Partners is a family owned holding company that owns and operates Lifelink Security, LLC of Johnstown PA and Premier Security Systems, LLC of Pittsburgh PA. Lifelink and Premier are commercial and residential providers of security systems and security monitoring. The companies will operate under the new holding company InterTECH Security Group. This latest move positions InterTECH very well for aggressive growth.

InterTECH is one of the fastest growing companies in southwestern Pennsylvania. Since its inception in 2000, InterTECH has developed an impressive client list which includes Fortune 500 companies, utility companies, professional sports venues, pharmaceutical companies, public transportation authorities, and other government agencies.

Lifelink will continue to operate from a Johnstown area location. Premier’s Pittsburgh staff will move to InterTECH’s Warrendale headquarters.

The synergies between the companies and the opportunity to build on the resources of each organization are what prompted the merger. InterTECH’s success in the fast growing integration market will be enhanced by Premier’s experience in residential installations and monitoring capabilities. InterTECH will inherit hard to find, quality installation and service technicians in both Pittsburgh and Johnstown. Premier customers will benefit from a wider variety of product options, more service capabilities, and additional expert personnel in service, installation, and monitoring.
