CEO of Total Security Solutions, Jim Richards, accepts John G. Thodis Michigan Manufacturer of the Year (Small Tier) Award

Lansing, Mich. Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018 – On behalf of his company, Total Security Solutions (TSS), CEO Jim Richards accepted the John G. Thodis Michigan Manufacturer of the Year (Small Tier) Award at the Michigan Manufacturers Association – MFG Excellence Awards ceremony. The event was held at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, on the campus of MSU.

Richards, a former EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, was proud to accept the award on behalf of his entire staff, as it signifies their contributions and growth performance as a part of the Michigan Manufacturing industry.

Together they have built TSS to be a family-first community, where employees work together to achieve their common goals. “Total Security Solutions stopped being about me the day I founded it. This is a business that should outlive me and be a part of this community for generations. That’s the ultimate goal.” says Richards.

A multiple-year listee on the Inc. 5000 list, TSS is proud to once again be recognized for its efforts. Under Richard’s leadership, TSS’s goal is to strive for perfection on every single bulletproof glass, door, and custom installation project. Since day one, that has been TSS’ mindset—no matter the industry or economic challenges. Through their perseverance, TSS is now recognized as a growing contributor to the Michigan manufacturing industry, and they could not be more proud of it.

As part of their continued growth strategy, TSS is expanding and moving into a brand new facility in the spring of 2019. Planting their roots even deeper in Fowlerville, the new facility is located just down the road from their current facility, and will double their manufacturing and administrative space.
