SE OHIO INNOVATION SECURES CLASSROOM, COMMERCIAL BUILDING DOORS IN ACTIVE SHOOTER SCENARIOS
ZANESVILLE OH JUNE 16, 2014 – SE Ohio innovator Troy Lowe today reaches the marketplace with an innovation that materially improves children’s and community members’ protection and safety nation-wide. Enabling Mr. Lowe’s compelling commercialization success story was business counseling and funding from the Muskingum County Business Incubator and TechGROWTH Ohio. Regional manufacturer Bilco today adds Mr. Lowe’s product to its specialty access products through an exclusive manufacturing contract.
Mr. Lowe, a decorated military veteran, firefighter and SWAT team member, created an intruder defense system: a door security device designed to protect occupants against building trespassers. The Barracuda TM is a free-standing device that locks down virtually any commercial door in an emergency situation.
Mr. Lowe took advantage of the services of the SE Ohio entrepreneurial ecosystem, through the expertise of TechGROWTH-funded MCBI Executive in Residence Sherry Stewart, who states: “Mr. Lowe is the ideal client. He was always attentive to his milestones and eager for the next step. We have enjoyed sharing in Mr. Lowe’s incredibly rapid and successful business trajectory, and deeply appreciate his can-do entrepreneurial spirit.”
Manufacturer Bilco sells the product in three models that protect inward swinging doors, outward swinging doors, and door handles. Bilco’s Executive Vice President Roger Joyce “is very impressed with the product,” crediting Mr. Lowe with a market-changing innovation.
“From the beginning, my goal has always been to keep as many people as safe as possible,” said Lowe. “We have been using Barracuda intruder defense system in our training programs and have found that individuals are confident and comfortable with their simplicity and effectiveness.”
“It is clear that the security industry is in need of an innovative product that can quickly and safely secure rooms in schools and commercial buildings in the event of an emergency or lockdown situation,” said Tom Crowley, Vice President of Sales and Marketing with The Bilco Company. “We are excited about the opportunity to be working with Troy Lowe to address this growing security problem and to bring his inventions to the market.”
