In 1969 Charles (Buzz) Matheson began Howland Alarm Company out of his home with his wife Patricia. Over the years Buzz, Pat and their children Jesse and Cindy have grown Howland Alarm into the most recognizable and trusted name in security in Northeast Ohio. Howland Alarm has come a long way in those 50 years.
