RIVERS Security Specialists (RSS) of Owosso is making a name for itself in the area of physical facility security. Approximately two years ago, RSS acquired another security fabricating business. “We’ve been making the product for about 14 years for the other company and about two years ago we bought the business,” said Ernie Rivers (right). Since then RSS, at 1650 E. South Street in Owosso, has been busy locally and throughout the United States, Canada and Central and South America creating Window Guards, Door Shields and other security devices for commercial businesses and homes.

Aaron’s recently had a Window Guard installed on its showroom windows. The grid system is constructed of high strength steel that is cross-welded for added strength and durability. The Guards are secured to the inside of the window frame and come in a variety of colors and give large showroom windows the appearance of beautiful, multi-paned windows.
There are a unique group of businesses owned by Ernie Rivers of Owosso that are located in a 20,000-square-foot facility at 1650 E. South Street in the Southeast Owosso Industrial Park.
