A-Com Protection Services Inc. (ranked No. 57 on the SDM 100) announced a new trade name and logo in an internal launch event at its corporate headquarters in Columbus, Georgia. The security alarm company which started in the southeast United States in 1973 will join sister companies A-Com Security Company and Brite Technologies Inc. to operate under one trade name: Acom Integrated Solutions.
“This merger represents the future of Acom and its service lines,” said Wayne Beck, Acom’s CEO and founder. “No longer will we operate separate service lines in separate footprints. Going forward, our customers will benefit from the integrated solutions that only Acom can provide through its eight locations and 46 years of experience.”
The “One Acom” launch event was held at the newly designated Acom corporate headquarters where the new logo, company-wide organizational chart and service lines were unveiled to employees. The title given to the launch event — One Acom — was an important message to employees about company unity, representing the merger of three companies under one brand. This consolidation of companies means Acom Integrated Solutions now offers more than 20 services in the security, fire, voice and network categories.
“The merger was designed to help support the growing need for efficiency and operation excellence in today’s security, life safety and communication environments,” said Jeff Beck, a division president for Acom. “Our extensive range of products and services demonstrates our ability to provide solutions to the many challenges faced by today’s business and home owners.”
Under the new consolidated service lines, Acom is now uniquely positioned to customize solutions by industry. John Jeffries, who joined the company in 2014 from the security alarm sector and now serves as a division president for Acom, explained how the new custom solutions will benefit any industry.
“Our agricultural clients are concerned about temperature monitoring and safe guarding inventory,” Jeffries said. “Our medical clients are worried about network security and HIPAA compliance. Our governmental clients prioritize access control and uniform deployment of software. Our retail clients are needing video surveillance and security systems. Now we have custom solutions to fit all these unique industry needs and more. We are a one stop shop.”
With the new trade name, Acom also unveiled a new color scheme and logo. “You’ll be seeing the Acom blue and yellow everywhere,” said Sam Phillips, director of marketing for Acom. “Our customers will be hearing about our new company and new solutions, and we will be out in our communities talking about how Acom can make businesses and homes more secure.”
Acom has a new website in production, as well as launches or re-launches of social media sites. A community launch event at the corporate headquarters for representatives of chambers of commerce, charitable organizations and other dignitaries will take place later in the year.
