My name is Tim Burdick. I own Burdick’s Security and I’d like to tell you a little about our company and the services that we provide.
Daryl Burdick, my father, established Burdick’s locksmith Service in 1959. For a few years, like many start-up companies, he worked from his home in Columbia City. My mother, Arlene, manned the phones and did the books. In time they rented a small storefront on Rainier Avenue close to Alaska Street.
In 1987 we purchased Burdick’s Lock from my parents and renamed it Burdick’s Security Hardware Service Inc. We wanted the name to reflect the scope of business we provided. Although locksmithing was still a large part of our business, we were growing the commercial door hardware, safe and security system side of the business as well.
Today we do business as Burdick’s Security and 80% of our customers are commercial. We sell, install and service access control systems (card readers and keyless entry systems), video surveillance systems, alarm, alarm monitoring, safes and high security key control systems.
Our mission is to provide our customers with professional, courteous service. We want to help our clients to make informed, educated decisions regarding their security. We are not only providers of security, we are Security Consultants.
