Allied Universal, a security and facility services company, announced the acquisition of Star Protection Agency, the largest locally-owned security firm in Hawaii.
Star Protection Agency has been in business since 1991, growing into the largest Hawaiian-owned and veteran-owned security company in the state. Although Star is primarily a guard patrol service, with workers at 125 sites throughout the state, it provides a range of security technology and consulting services.
“I’m pleased to welcome Star Protection Agency’s dedicated employees to the Allied Universal team,” said Steve Jones, global chairman and CEO of Allied Universal. “Star’s proven track record of providing quality security solutions will complement and enhance our business in Hawaii. This is part of our continued acquisition strategy in North America and Internationally.”
President and Owner of Star Protection Agency Robin Medeiros, along with Vice President Anderson Hee have agreed to join Allied Universal to ensure a seamless transition for customers and employees.
“Star takes seriously its kuleana, or responsibility, to the communities we serve,” Medeiros said. “We know by joining Allied Universal, the industry leader with shared values, we will be able to serve our customers even better. Because Allied Universal has a promote-from-within culture, our employees will have access to growth opportunities throughout the world.”
