Special Response Corporation was founded in 1986 by the current owner, President and CEO, Martin B. Herman. Since then, our professional security personnel have been sent on daily, weekly, and monthly deployments. The skilled and expert employees at Special Response Corporation protect business and industry, personnel and property against manmade and natural disasters as well as homeland security threats. Our assignments across North America have included plant closures and downsizing, threats of workplace violence, executive protection, labor disputes and strikes, and even special events.
Our first major deployment was to New York City where Special Response security personnel were deployed more than 18 months providing services during a major strike by the Longshoremen (ILA) in 1988. In 1990, TeamWorks USA was founded, and after such a successful decade, we acquired TeamWorks USA in 2000, to overcome our rapid expansion. Below, you can find a timeline with some of our other significant deployments:
2016 & 2017
Each year we are continuously expanding, and our expert security teams are expanding. We run training schools throughout the year. Each school will educate a minimum of 12 -18 students in our security processes, standards, and company values.
2008 was an amazing year for us. Our hard work and efforts to provide excellence were noticed and we received the Training Magazine’s Training Top 125 Award for the first time. Our exceptional training standards were recognized again and again when we received the Training Top 125 Award every year, including February of 2020. That is 12 times Special Response Corporation has been awarded the Training Magazine’s Training Top 125 award in just 13 years, a testimony to our first-rate training program.
