Critical Signal Technologies hires 40, doubles revenue in 2010

Critical Signal Technologies is more than just a business to Jeffery Prough. It's personal.

A health care professional, Prough watched his father spend much of the final years of his life in hospitals. Had today's technologies been available then he could have maximized his time with family and friends. But the personal connection goes even deeper. Prough's elderly mother and a brother are both heart transplant recipients. Each became the inspiration for starting Critical Signal Technologies.

"I fell in love with the concept of aging in place," Prough says. "People thrive and live longer with their loved ones in comfortable surroundings where they feel they have control."

Prough equates the shrinking will to live to the loss of independence. Home care helps the elderly or disabled to regain some independence, and is often much more cost effective than extended hospital visits or senior citizen homes.

Critical Signal Technologies provides home-monitoring and security technology and services that allows people with failing health to continue to enjoy their home lives. The company Prough founded in 2006 has grown to 125 employees, 450 independent contractors, and a few interns today, mostly in the company's headquarters in Farmington Hills and an office in Massachusetts.

Critical Signal Technologies acquired Link to Life last fall, but has grown primarily organically. The company hired 40 people in 2010, mostly in Michigan, after it doubled its customer base and revenue. It expects to add another 15-20 jobs in 2011 on projected revenue growth of 20-25 percent.
