SafetyCare Opens Headquarters in Former Pretzel Factory


SafetyCare Technologies, a home security monitoring and medical emergency assistance company, has opened its national emergency response headquarters in the brick-walled confines of a former pretzel bakery in Reading, Pa.

A recent ribbon-cutting ceremony included elected officials and other local dignitaries, who toured the facility, met with off-duty life-safety EMTs and were shown demonstrations of typical emergency calls.

The event culminated two years during which SafetyCare’s fiber-optic network and mainframe, plus other technology, was transported from Hackensack, N.J. and wired through the former pretzel factory. Company officials invested $2 million to rehabilitate the 8,000-square-foot building that was transformed into a state-of-the-art central monitoring station.

“There were many locations in which we could have built the SafetyCare headquarters, but it was important for us to be headquartered in the greater Reading area,” says Michael Bodnar, general manager of SafetyCare, noting the company owners, Jack and Rosemary Gulati, are local residents.
