Per Mar Acquires to Expand Security Officer Division in Chicago Area
Established in 2005, American Pride Security Services specializes in part-time and full-time security officer services.
DAVENPORT, Iowa — Per Mar Security Services, a leading provider of total security solutions for residential and commercial clients, based here, has acquired American Pride Security Services of Bloomingdale, Ill.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
American Pride Security Services specializes in part-time and full-time security officer services in the Chicagoland area. The company’s owners, Neal and Michelle Loftus, expanded the business to Fort Meyers, Fla.
The Loftus’s will be relocating to Fort Meyers to focus solely on their Florida operation. All 32 of American Pride Security Services employees in Bloomingdale will be joining Per Mar’s Chicago branch.
“American Pride Security Services represents the same values of taking care of employees and customers that we have,” says Brad Duffy, who serves as the president of Per Mar’s security officer division. “It’s a great fit for both parties and provides good expansion for Per Mar in the Chicago market.”
American Pride Security Services has served the Chicagoland market for 14 years.
“With 34 years in the business it was paramount to my partner and me that we leave our family — staff and client’s — in the hands of another family,” says Neal Loftus says. “We have always put the industry first as we’ve always maintained a core mission to change the way people feel about security. I believe with all of my heart that Per Mar is also sincere in that belief and their track record shows this.”
Founded in 1953, Per Mar Security Services is the largest, family-owned, full-service security company in the Midwest with more than 2,400 team members, operating in more than 20 branch locations and 17 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.
