For nearly half a century...

Alpha has provided retailers with the most innovative and technically advanced products engineered to protect high-theft merchandise. Our solutions deliver uncompromising security, ease-of-use for store associates, and aesthetics that complement the merchandise it protects. Best of all, you will see an ROI in less than twelve months. 

Our product solutions are technology agnostic, designed to complement any EAS system, whether AM, RF, or EM as well as those not using EAS. We focus exclusively on protecting high-risk merchandise, pioneering the "Open Display" security philosophy. This provides retailers a safe means to bring merchandise from behind locked cabinets and openly display it. All of our customers have seen immediate success resulting in increased sales, decreased theft, and an ROI—with more than 95 percent of retailers who test our product solutions joining our growing list of partners. Our solutions are so effective they are now carried by the top three retailers in each of these markets:

  • Office supply
  • Consumer electronics & multimedia
  • Grocery & drug
  • Mass merchant
  • Discount
  • Sporting goods
  • Apparel
  • Specialty
  • DIY
