DAVENPORT, Iowa—Per Mar Security Services, a family-owned, full-service security company based here, announced it has acquired ABC Fire & Burglar Company of Gary, Ind., a residential and commercial security services company with approximately 2,000 accounts.

“The customers and employees of ABC … will really add to Per Mar's strength in the Northwestern Indiana, and help us have enough density to really become the preeminent provider in a large market,” Brian Duffy, chief operating officer of Per Mar Security Services, told Security Systems News. “They provided great service and we look to expand upon that with our technology offerings.”

Founded by Michael Easton in 1963, the team at ABC Fire & Burglar Company will join Per Mar's Griffith office, including Michael Easton's children, Bob and Angi Easton, and the company's technical staff.

Duffy said Per Mar is honored to have been selected by the Easton family to serve the customers they have earned over the past 60 years.

“Working with the Eastons has been a pleasure—the whole Easton family cares deeply about their employees and customers,” he said. “It gives us great pride that they trust Per Mar to continue on their great legacy. We will talk to as many customers as we can in order to offer our whole suite of full-service solutions.”

Established in 1953, Per Mar Security Services has more than 2,400 team members, operating in 23 branch locations and 18 satellite locations. The company provides full-service security solutions for homes and businesses including security officer services, smart home automation, burglar and fire alarms, access control, security cameras, alarm monitoring, investigative services and background checks.

Duffy said he is “very happy” with the company's growth in 2018, noting that the company “can be even better in 2019, including increased organic growth.”
