Bulldog, originally known as Dedoes Innovative Manufacturing, was founded in 2004 as a custom metal fabrication shop. In 2018, the company was purchased and renamed to Bulldog Innovative Manufacturing. In 2021, Bulldog was acquired by Total Security Solutions, a custom bulletproof barrier manufacturer and installer. Since that acquisition, major investments continue to be made in people, processes, facilities, and equipment to ensure we deliver on our three Uniques!
