Third-generation South Carolina-based company

The QEI Security & Technology team is lead by founder Chad Sanders. The company originally operated as a division of Quality Electric of the Coastal Carolinas, which was founded in the 1970s by Chad’s dad and late grandfather. Chad took the reins of Quality Electric in 2008 and developed the security side of the business.


“I grew up in this company,” Chad says. “I can remember going to the shop and riding my big wheel. I chased all the trucks up and down the driveway. As I got older, I went on service calls with my dad and in middle and high school, I worked on a crew when I wasn’t playing baseball or football.”


Chad has grown both companies exponentially – both in geography and size. QEI Security & Technology is now one of the largest South Carolina-based security companies with five offices throughout the state. Plus, QEI has grown to offer a full range of home integration and automation systems.


All QEI Security & Technology staff members are full-time employees based in South Carolina. Each market has a regional manager as well as sales and operations staff. See all QEI Security & Technology locations.
