Maxx Security expands to Portage


Posted 09/11/18

The company might be relatively new but that’s not stopping business and life partners Fred Baah and Ashley Fisher and their goal of providing specialized security services across southern Manitoba.

Maxx Security expanded it’s operation to Portage la Prairie and held its official grand opening this week. The company is a mix of current and former military personnel and civilians, including CEO Fred Baah – who has a background in the military himself as a Canadian Armed Forces artillery soldier – each of whom are well versed in numerous security training methods.

“The difference is our professionalism, our operation, our training and our commitment to not just our personnel but our community,” says Baah, of what separates Maxx from its competitors. “We do quite a bit of training so before we have our personnel out there they’re well trained in different areas that they can utilize while working.”

Maxx first launched in Shilo in Aug. 2017 and was operational come November. The 25-employee operation – and growing – offers its services for such things as commercial buildings, retail businesses, festivals and weddings socials.

Maxx security guards are trained in self defence, first aid, non violent crisis intervention, pressure point control techniques along with sensitivity training. When the company’s services were requested in the Portage area, it didn’t take long for Baah and Fisher to consider expanding.

“When we got to Portage la Prairie we fell in love with the community,” says Baah. “People are very welcoming and we thought maybe we could have a branch here.”

The Portage location operates out of 39 Royal Road. For more information, visit maxxsecurity.ca.
