Owen Security Solutions Acquires Tight Security Systems
Owens Security extends its operating area in Ellijay, Ga., and across the northwestern region in Georgia.
CALHOUN, Ga. – Owen Security Solutions has acquired Tight Security Systems of Ellijay, Ga., for undisclosed terms.
Scott Bishop, owner and president of Tight Security Systems, established the family-run business in 2000. He grew it to nearly 600 residential and commercial customers, serving Ellijay and northwest Georgia. Bishop has joined the Owen Security Solutions team and will continue to support the Ellijay area.
“We were thrilled about this opportunity to not only acquire a customer base, but to gain a key team member as well. That was the bonus on top,” says Justin Owen, president of Owen Security. “As another family-run business, we were impressed with their reputation and dedication for quality installation and customer service.”
Bishop explains he had not previously considered selling his business, but became intrigued about the potential to do so after meeting with Justin Owen.
“[H]is plans and leadership were impressive. I knew this was going to be the best choice for our customers. We couldn’t have chosen a better customer-serviced based company than Owen Security,” Bishop says.
