Briscoe Company History

People Helping People make a Difference

bert-briscoeThe Beginning
Briscoe Protective Systems Inc. was founded in 1978 in Brooklyn NY, as a residential security alarm company. 10 years later the principals formed a fire alarm equipment distribution company specializing in N.Y.C. approved Fire Alarms. The business grew more rapidly than the security division, so in 1993 they combined the companies. By the end of the same year the residential security accounts were sold in order for the company to focus on the Commercial and Institutional market.

The name “Briscoe” is in memory of the grandfather of one of the principals. Joseph Bartholomew “Bert” Briscoe was a fight trainer who coached Archie Moore (Light-heavyweight Champion). Bert believed that the “things you make in life” are what you are, and the most important thing you can make is “a difference” in the lives of your fellow man. His ideals have helped form the basis of the company motto,“People Helping People Make a Difference.”
