VANCOUVER, B.C.—Provident Security, based here, serves about 6,000 clients in this Canadian city. But the fact that many of them have vacation homes in Whistler, a mountain resort town less than two hours from the city, has led the company to make its first acquisition outside of Vancouver in its 15-year-history.
Provident on Aug. 31 acquired Dow Security, a 10-year-old company in Whistler, the host mountain site for the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. Provident plans to rebrand Dow as Provident Security (Whistler) Corp. before the end of the year, Provident founder and president Mike Jagger said.
