Danner's Security Timeline

Founded by D.D. Danner in 1939 in the burgeoning shipping center of the West Gulf Coast, Danner’s Incorporated has a long-standing reputation of meeting and exceeding the service needs of clients around the Gulf. Danner’s Incorporated gulf presence expanded in the late 1980’s with the opening of offices in Port Arthur and Freeport.

These new offices immediately brought about faster turnaround times and reduced costs for our clients and made Danner’s one of the most trusted independent maritime services company in the Gulf Coast area.

Meanwhile, in the spring of 2002, Danner’s security and transportation continued to grow due to the demanding need for experienced maritime security personnel and raised requirements by Homeland Security. Combining our experienced and dedicated staffs has strengthened our ability and commitment to continue serving your needs beyond expectations.

In 2006, Danner’s Security went on to expand their security services by offering live video monitoring services. In 2007, Danner’s Security began offering these live video monitoring solutions that included mobile camera monitoring trailers and pole/wall mounted monitoring systems. In 2012, they added hardware and software solutions that gave them an edge over the competition with improved detection capabilities.

Security is necessary for everyone today and our focus has always been on providing our customers with the most cost-effective security solution we can find. What makes us great is we have over 74 years of experience with traditional security services. Our team will always look for the most cost-effective solution that will meet all your needs for security at a price you can afford.
