DAVENPORT, Iowa — Per Mar Security Services, the parent company to Midwest Alarm Services, announces the acquisition of Lincoln, Neb.-based NECO Security.
NECO Security was founded by Don Nielsen in 1957 and specializes in residential and commercial intrusion and fire alarm systems in the Lincoln area.
“After 63 years in the fire alarm/security industry, the Nielsen family is moving into a new season. In so doing, after careful thought and consideration, as our customers are of utmost importance, we have selected Per Mar as our successor,” states Owner Don Nielsen.
Nielsen continues, “Per Mar has a UL Listed, FM Approved, TMA 5 Diamond-certified central monitoring center, and offers an expanded range of services to our customers. In addition, Per Mar’s company, Midwest Alarm Services, is a Premier Notifier Distributor; thus, completing the perfect fit.”
Brian Duffy, COO of Per Mar Security Services, comments, “The Nielsen family has built a great company in Lincoln through years of hard work and excellent service. We are honored that they are placing their trust in us to be stewards of the business.”
NECO Security Project Manager Bill Thomas, along with the company’s five technicians, will be joining Midwest Alarm Services. They will be serving customers out of the Per Mar and Midwest Alarm Services local office in Lincoln.
“We are excited to have NECO Security join our organization,” says Doug Richard, president of Midwest Alarm Services. “NECO and Midwest Alarm Services were two of the original Notifier dealers in the U.S. The NECO team will be a great cultural fit as they have been working together for decades and have a customer first mentality. We are looking forward to working with them to continue to deliver the best service in the industry.”
