ASHLAND A new business is expanding it services to Kentucky and said it hopes to create about 30 jobs for the Ashland area.
EagleForce Security is a security services agency based in Phoenix. It announced in a news release it will expand its services to the Ashland area with the hiring process already underway.
The security business offers uniformed security guard services for businesses small and large. It has more than 25 years of experience managing security programs across a variety of industries.
“I have always considered Ashland home,” said owner Ryan Eld-ridge. “It has been my mission to expand my company into Kentucky since day one, and I look forward to bringing EagleForce’s proven track record of success to the local community.”
Hiring for the business is in the early stages, with Eldridge hoping to have the positions filled by late August or early September.
“It feels good to be coming back home and creating jobs for the area,” Eldridge said.
Once the hiring process is complete Eldridge hopes to have the company up and running by the end of the year or possibly earlier.
“For now, we will have a virtual office for there,” Eldridge said. But we are looking at possibly putting an office in Ashland down the road.”
Eldridge said the company will not only serve small businesses in the area, but can provide security for events as well.
“We have also been in talks with the aluminum plant that is coming to the area and are hoping to work with them,” Eldridge said. “We are looking forward to being a part of Ashland.”
The company is also in the process of expanding its company to New Mexico.
