Vector Security Purchases

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. — Vector Security Inc., a provider of electronic security systems and uniformed guard services, has acquired three more security companies. Custom Security Inc. of Columbus, Ohio; Security Concepts/National Security of Harrisonburg and Charlottesville, Va.; and WiredUp Inc. of Williamsburg, Va., were purchased by Vector. The company says it executed a total of six acquisitions in 2006.

Customer Security will retain key personnel, including Andy Conti, who will now be Vector’s area manager of sales and operations. Security Concepts and National Security, both owned by Ron Smullen, will enable Vector to establish a new branch office in the Harrisonburg/Charlottesville area, which will be affiliated with Vector’s Richmond, Va., district, the company says. Thirty key personnel in sales and operations will be retained by Vector, including Smullen.

Vector is banking on WiredUp Inc., a provider of home networking services, to boost its presence in the burgeoning construction markets in Virginia.
