Do you know where this Dunbar Armored Truck Picture was taken?

The need for any business to secure cash is always present, especially when it is at its most vulnerable point – in transit.  That is why Dunbar’s signature red and black armored trucks (we have 1,500 of them!) can be seen driving through the streets all across the United States of America, including the city below…

Do you know where this Dunbar Armored Truck Picture was taken?

Hint: Once called the “Beehive of Industry,” it is the largest city in its state and the third largest city in the New England region.

Family-owned since 1923, Dunbar is the largest independent armored car company in the nation dedicated to safeguarding your valuables

Dunbar Employees are getting into the Holiday Spirit and giving back!

In today’s fast paced world, we often lose sight of the real meaning of the Holidays. Well, at least one Dunbar employee, Becky Gerber, has found the Holiday Spirit. She is helping collect donations for Defenders, a local animal shelter on Old York rd. in Phoenix, Maryland.

Becky is collecting old blankets, cleaning supplies, bleach, sheets, pet toys, pet food and monetary donations.

“I like to support this Shelter in particular because they do not euthanize these pets unless they test positive for a highly communicable disease,” explained Becky.

About Defenders Animal Shelter

Defenders was the first animal shelter in Maryland to do away with euthanizing animals. At Defenders, animals are kept for as long as it takes to find them a home, even if it takes years. Defenders mission is to “alleviate suffering of abused, unwanted, and neglected animals.” And since its founding over 35 years ago, Defenders has adopted out over 25,969 animals!

Great job Becky!

And Happy Holidays from everyone here at Dunbar!

Dunbar in the Community: Donating Stockings to the Salvation Army!

With the holidays upon us, Dunbar headquarters is spreading joy in more ways than one. The holidays are a time to give back and contribute to the community. That is exactly what the employees at Dunbar aim to do each year. Since 1999, Dunbar Headquarters has actively participated in the filling of stockings for children and senior citizens. These stockings are then donated to The Salvation Army.

Salvation Army Stocking Stuffer Program

The Stocking Stuffer Program is one of the Salvation Army’s most popular holiday programs. The Salvation Army provides 24 inch mesh stockings to churches, clubs and organizations, like Dunbar. Then employees stuff these stockings full of various items, including toiletries, books, toy cars, costume jewelry, crayons, and other age and gender appropriate gifts. The Salvation Army then picks up these stockings and distributes them to needy children and senior citizens in the area.

This year in the spirit of the season, HQ employees yet again went above and beyond to fill several holiday stockings.

Dunbar’s Debbie Wisner helps prepare the stockings for pick-up

As we come to the end of 2012, we want to thank everyone that contributed to our successful, annual donation. Dunbar would also like to give a very big ‘Thank You’ to Debbie Wisner for once again heading up this wonderful effort.

Happy Holidays from everyone here at Dunbar!

Dunbar enters the Realm of Cybersecurity with Dunbar Digital Armor

cybersecurity“It’s [Dunbar Digital Armor]  a logical extension of our business to provide our customer with the same ironclad security that we have been delivering for nearly 90 years – and part of our long-term strategy to continue to meet the needs of our customers with new technologies,” said Kevin R. Dunbar.

Digital Armor, Dunbar’s Newest Division, receives some Press

Last week, Dunbar’s newest division, Dunbar Digital Armor, was featured in the Baltimore Sun. The article spotlights our new chief operating officer of the new digital company, Chris Ensey, and a little insight as to what exactly our new division will offer starting January 2013.

With the drastic spike in cyber threats, Dunbar Digital Armor aims to provide small and mid-size institutions with protection from cybercrime by acquiring top-of-the-line cyber security software products and combining them into a single, easy-to-use package for our customers.

1. The Banking Industry: Not only are banks facing an increase in fraud and theft, but they are also paying more each year to respond and repair these attacks. There is a growing need for smaller banking institutions to invest in cyber security as internet hackers are beginning to stray from the larger banks and target the smaller ones.

2. The Retail Industry: With more and more retailers doing business online, the need for increased cybersecurity is crucial for the protection of the customers’ vital purchasing account data.

3. Government: Government agencies, perhaps more than anyone else, need to protect their confidential information.

Dunbar Digital Armor provides the above industries and more with the best, most cost-effective cybersecurity solution around!
