Per Mar Acquires Southlake Security

June 1, 2017

DAVENPORT, Iowa – Per Mar Security Services is pleased to announce it has acquired Southlake Security in Griffith, Indiana further expanding its security services and customer base in Northwest Indiana.

Southlake Security was founded by Dan Barnes 39 years ago. Barnes focused on providing residential and small commercial alarm systems in Northwest Indiana and grew the company from zero customers to almost 1,800. Barnes is looking forward to his well-earned retirement.

Brian Duffy, President of Electronic Security for Per Mar Security Services, said “It has been a pleasure to work with Dan Barnes over the past several months finalizing this transaction. Dan has been doing things the right way for 39 years, and we are honored that he has placed his trust in Per Mar to treat his customers well for many more.”

Per Mar has hired Southlake Security’s three technicians and will be moving into Southlake Security’s current building in Griffith, Indiana in order to stay local and close to its new customers.
