Allied Universal Acquires Hawaii-Based Star Protection Agency

SANTA ANA, Calif. — Allied Universal announces the acquisition of Honolulu-based Star Protection Agency.
Star Protection Agency has been in business since 1991, growing into the largest Hawaiian-owned and veteran-owned security company in the state, according to the company.
Star is primarily a guard patrol service, with workers at 125 sites throughout the state, and also provides a range of security technology and consulting services.
“I’m pleased to welcome Star Protection Agency’s dedicated employees to the Allied Universal team. Star’s proven track record of providing quality security solutions will complement and enhance our business in Hawaii,” says Steve Jones, global chairman & CEO of Allied Universal. “This is part of our continued acquisition strategy in North America and Internationally.”
President and Owner of Star Protection Agency Robin Medeiros, along with Vice President Anderson Hee say they have agreed to join Allied Universal to ensure a seamless transition for customers and employees.
“Star takes seriously its kuleana, or responsibility, to the communities we serve. We know by joining Allied Universal, the industry leader with shared values, we will be able to serve our customers even better,” says Robin Medeiros. “Because Allied Universal has a promote-from-within culture, our employees will have access to growth opportunities throughout the world.”
