The Oberlander Alarms Story

After the founding of Oberlander Electric in 1940 in Peoria, E. B. Oberlander dedicated himself to the pursuit of excellence for the company’s clients.

While wiring a well-known whiskey distillery in Peoria, E.B was asked to work on their fire system. At the time, he wasn’t familiar with fire equipment. However, he was so determined to provide excellent service to his customer, he went above and beyond to learn the fire system, and what steps were needed in the situation.

At that time, ADT was the only alarm company in the Central Illinois area. Seeing an opportunity in the market, Oberlander Protection Alarms was founded in 1956.

E. B. and the company expanded into security alarms, as well as fire systems. He partnered with Potter Electric of St. Louis, to set up Oberlander’s first central monitoring station in Oberlander’s office at the time, which was located on Main Street in Peoria. The partnership grew, and Jim Flotrone of Potter became a strong resource to the new Oberlander Protection Alarms, as well as becoming a friend of the Oberlander family.

Oberlander Alarms practices the same core values today – going above and beyond to provide the best service possible for our customers.
