Our 5th Anniversary!

The years to follow should be a blast!

Our 5th Anniversary!!!!! The years to follow should be a blast!

We are celebrating our fifth year in business.

For any business this is a special milestone. According to Bloomberg, eight out of ten businesses fail in their first 18 months. Forbes “A whopping 80% crash and burn”. According to the Small Business Association (SBA), this isn't necessarily true. The SBA states that only 30% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 50% during the first five years…

So, who is right? The SBA has changed their numbers over the years. When BHI started the SBA’s numbers were more in line with Bloomberg and Forbes. When you really crunch the SBA’s numbers; 30 out of 100 fail in two years, leaving 70, then half of 70 is 35 at five years.

Either way, no matter who is right, there are far more roads and pot holes that lead to business failure than success. It has taken many long days, hard work and dedication. Yet, most of BHI’s success is credited in one area, our employees.

Our employees have done exemplary work and they deserve most of the credit. Of course, it would be easy to say that is bias and it’s a selling point to grow the company. But it is very true. We genuinely have an outstanding team. One that is truly head and shoulders above other companies.

The team work and dedication has been amazing. And, through that, goals have been exceeded and relationships with local PDs, EMS, and firefighters is unheard of for a security company.

As dedicated as our employees have become, BHI strives to reciprocate with support and training, and treating our employees as the valuable assets they are, and not a number. BHI’s goal will be to increase the training and support in the years to come.

We have crossed the five-year threshold. We have shown the world we are strong, stable, and dependable. From this day forward, many more doors of opportunities will open, and more goals will be exceeded with great abundance.

For all which has passed and to have such a fantastic team, it can only be GOD’s will that this great assemblage of people has come together and made such great accomplishments.

Private Security

Memorial Week

Sept. 9 through 14, 2018

Second week of September honors all private security officers who have paid the ultimate price to protect their fellow citizen from harm.   

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends". John 15:13

We partnered with Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company during the Army Corp. of Engineers Beach Replenishment project at Atlantic Beach NC. The beach replenishment began at Fort Macon State Park and Beaufort Inlet and continued approximately 5 miles West to the town of Atlantic Beach. The area where the beach was replenished was a very dangerous work area where heavy equipment was operated around the clock. It was our mission to prevent people from entering the work area. The work site moved daily.    

After the Town Hall Meeting, a conversation with Congressman Ted Budd

Wed 18 January 2016

Congressman Ted Budd was conducting his Listening Tour of the North Carolina's 13th Congressional District. Uka and Dave were able to attend and had the opportunity to speak with Congressman Budd one-on-one after the meeting.

During the meeting several topics were covered from the ACA, the VA's condition of services, minimum wages, and the TTP were dominant. For BHI, the most important part of the Town Hall meeting came afterwards.

Obviously brief; less than 15 minutes, but very enjoyable. Uka and Dave were able to convey their concerns which have the greatest negative affects on business, especially those affecting security and services based businesses.

Congressman Budd's position is aligned with free market values which are historically proven to be most beneficial to all. BHI feels that Congressman Budd will represent the business sector well in Washington DC.

Liberty Antique Festival 

Liberty Antique Festival is one of the largest antique shows on the East Coast. And, it is definitely the longest running at 25 plus years.

Black Hawk International Security assumed ALL of the security for the show in April 2016.

Prior we had only conducted the night patrols after the venue closed to the public; a local law enforcement agency handled most of the security.

This show was has become very special to us. Not only did we assume all the security for the April 2016 show, the show also set a new attendance record by a substantial amount.

BHI was able to raise the bar to a higher level of security and out preform all security levels of the past.
