LEXINGTON, Ky. – Bates Security has acquired the Jacksonville, Fla.-based Performance Security, the company announced.

This acquisition marks Bates’ third in recent months. The company said that adding Performance Security to its portfolio will further strengthen its presence in the Jacksonville and Greater Northeast Florida market.

“Through my 35 years of providing service to my family of customers, relationships have been formed. But it is time for me to retire and enjoy the benefits of my time,” said Bill Downing, former owner of Performance Security. “I diligently searched for a company, who could provide the same level of service, or better, so that my family of customers would receive only the best service as they have come to expect from Performance Security.”

Jeremy Bates, president of Bates Security, elaborated, saying, “We found a perfect addition to our company as we are lucky to share many of the same core values as well as a similar business model with Performance Security, including a commitment to providing excellent customer service and cutting-edge technology options. My brother Bryan and I are excited to lead the company’s growth into new areas of Florida, Georgia and Kentucky, and the addition of Performance Security helps further that goal. The Bates team brings additional resources and ideas that will further enhance the services to the Performance Security client base in Jacksonville and surrounding counties.”

Bates’ growth in the Jacksonville area has accelerated in the past two years not only with this acquisition of Performance Security, but also Island Security and Southtech Integration (dba Dynamark).
