WAYNE, Pa. — Argosy Private Equity, a lower middle market private equity firm, announces the acquisition of The Gilbertson Group (TGG) by Argosy’s portfolio company, Wittenbach.

TGG, a second-generation family-owned, UL-Listed company, has been providing security solutions to financial, education, healthcare, commercial, pharmaceutical, government, retail, and property management customers for over 30 years.

TGG specializes in physical and electronic security systems integration, retail delivery solutions and security consulting, working with the financial and commercial sectors of the Mid-Atlantic region, while also supporting customers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
