Gillmore Security Systems, an Oakwood Village, Ohio-based provider of security solutions for the residential and commercial markets, announced last week that it has acquired ABLE Security & Automation Corp.
This is Gillmore Security's second acquisition in the last four months, having previously acquired Worldwide Security in December.
"As a family business, we are committed to creating growth and local employment opportunities in the Northeast Ohio region," said Alan Gillmore IV, chief operating officer of the company. "ABLE Security is a very high quality acquisition for us and we are excited to welcome the ABLE customers and employees to our organization."
"We are thrilled about joining the Gillmore team. It's a natural fit as we are both high quality local companies with customer service as our first priority. It's a winner for all of us," said Ray Laino, the former owner of ABLE Security. "We have always admired Gillmore Security as a first class competitor. Now we look forward to joining this winning team of folks. We foresee great things for all of us and our customers. There is no security company in NE Ohio with a better reputation than Gillmore. It's an honor to join this group of people, and continue to serve our customers".
Laino will be joining the Gillmore sales team as part of the acquisition.
