Per Mar acquires Alarm Co. North Security

Per Mar Security Services has purchased Minocqua, Wisc., alarm dealer Alarm Co. North Security. The purchase was closed on Oct. 15, 2009.

The acquisition of Alarm Co. North Security was Per Mar's fourth acquisition in 14 months, and the move adds customers in Wisconsin and the Midwest. The acquired customer base includes residential and commercial accounts for fire and burglar alarms as well as CCTV and access control.

Former owner of Alarm Co. North Security Dennis Boettge will become one of Per Mar's dealership program premier partners and will be working as an independent security consultant and dealer. Per Mar's General Manager of Electronic Security for its existing Wausau, Wisc., office will handle the transition of Boettge's business into Per Mar's operations.

Per Mar Security Services is based in Davenport, Iowa, and has 21 branch offices around the Midwest. The company has more than 3,500 employees and provides not only electronic security services, but also contract security guard services as well as investigations and consulting services.
