Bates Security

ADR Security Services became Bates Security as of May of this year. It will be the same company, stated a press release, but its new name represents a stronger tie to the family that owns and operates its parent company, Sonitrol of Lexington Inc.

In June, the company acquired Winchester Security, Winchester, Ky. The acquisition adds premiere customers to Bates’ strong presence in and around Lexington, said a press release. The staff of Winchester will work with Bates to ensure a smooth transition.

Jeremy Bates, general manager of Bates Security, stated, “This acquisition is a perfect addition to our commercial and residential client base. The transaction also strengthens our technical department to better serve our customers.”

Bates is one of the largest privately owned security companies in Kentucky and since 2007 ranked in the SDM 100. It is the only security company in Kentucky to currently rank in the SDM 100.

Bates Security provides both residential and commercial security services. It offers security, video, fire protection, access control, as well as life safety and environmental monitoring services. Bates Security takes a consultative approach in assessing its clients’ needs and then propose a solution designed specifically for its customers.
