Per Mar Security Services, Davenport, Iowa, announced in late May that it acquired Employer’s Security of Elkhart, Ind. The company, which had been in business since 1956, was owned and operated by Nathan Soward and Gayle Davis. Employer’s Security offered full electronic security and guard services including burglar and fire alarm systems, access control, CCTV installations, security officer, mobile patrol, and alarm response.  Per Mar will continue to offer these services and the operation will move into its existing Mishawaka office, which will ensure that exceptional service continues to be provided to Employer’s Security’s former customer base, the company said. An additional 150 employees and 500 alarm customers have become a part of the Per Mar family, servicing a total of more than 3,000 customers in this area.

The company’s home office is located in Davenport, Iowa, with 21 branch offices located throughout Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Nebraska.
