Townsend Systems was formed in 1962 as a
division of Townsend Supply Company, a
locally owned business specializing in
wholesale electrical supplies and equipment.
With a staff of two and a service vehicle,
the newly formed company set out to
capitalize on a growing burglar and fire
alarm market. As time passed Townsend
Systems began to broaden their product
offering and territory.
Martin Supply Company, of Florence,
Alabama, purchased Townsend Supply Company
in 1997. Martin is a holding company capable
of providing growth, guidance and services
for its divisions. Martin is diversified in
its product and service offering and has
over 240 employees and 19 branch locations
in addition to the home office. These
branches span over the Southeastern United
States with concentration in Alabama,
Tennessee and Mississippi.
Today, under management of Martin, Townsend
Systems employs 23 full time associates and
we recommend, design, install and service a
full array of products to include access
control, burglar alarm, fire alarm,
intercom, network wiring, nurse call, sound
reinforcement, telephone and video
surveillance systems. Townsend Systems
employs factory and NICET certified
technicians. We provide support 24 hours a
day and maintain a large inventory of
equipment. Townsend Systems is recognized by
Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) as a
fire alarm equipment and service company.
