Pelican takes Bayou under its wing


Pelican Security Network has a new member: Bayou Security Systems, a 30-year-old life safety services and property protection provider based in Shreveport, La.

Baton Rouge, La.-based Pelican is a nationwide alliance of independently-branded life safety and security services providers, fire alarm companies, systems integrators and electrical contractors.

The announcement was made Tuesday, Sept. 6, by Davis Mergers and Acquisitions Group of Long Grove, Ill., which said it represented Bayou in the transaction.

Here are some details from the release, and I’ll be calling the companies to find out more:

This addition of several thousand subscribers helps expand the footprint for Pelican in the Ark-La-Tex Region in and around Shreveport, the home of two of its three primary investors.

“I am very pleased that under the Pelican plan, Bayou Security will continue to be managed as it always has in the past, as a locally owned and operated company,” said Rebecca Norton, [Bayou] General Manager.

“In addition, under the altruistic guidance of Richard Norton III, the recently deceased founder of Bayou Security, the Company was not only known for its technological advancements and customer service, but also for its community and philanthropic activities. For these reasons, the Bayou transaction is a very special undertaking on our part,” said Louis Resweber, Founder, President and COO of Pelican.
