Vector Security Inc., Plymouth Meeting, Pa., completed three acquisitions — one in Columbus, Ohio, and two in Virginia — that are expected to increase the company’s presence in a number of strategic markets and expand its access to a key ancillary services market. 

The first acquisition, Custom Security Inc., Columbus, Ohio, will increase Vector’s residential and commercial customer base presence within the area, while allowing the company to retain key personnel, including Andy Conti, who will become Vector’s area manager of sales and operations. In addition to attaining greater customer density, the acquisition will increase Vector’s opportunities in a key, high-security commercial market and provide additional business opportunities for Vector’s National Accounts Division.

The second acquisition, and the largest of the three, was Security Concepts/National Security of Harrisonburg and Charlottesville, Va. This acquisition was comprised of two separate security companies owned by Ron Smullen, and allowed Vector to establish a new branch office location in that area, which will be affiliated with Vector’s Richmond, Va. district. Smullen will become the manager of the newly- established Vector branch office. 
The final strategic acquisition was WiredUp, Williamsburg, Va., a home integrated systems provider.  The company, owned by Matt Kurdziolek, is highly active in the high-tech audio visual services market to both residential and commercial clients, and will help Vector increase its presence in this market. Kurdziolek will continue to manage the office. For more information on Vector Security, visit www.vectorsecurity.com.
