Monday, June 12, 2017

LANCASTER, Pa.—Select Security, a super-regional security company based here, on June 12 announced its acquisition of Intelligent Technology Inc. and Carolina Security Group, based in Charlotte, N.C. 

“This acquisition brings us significant customer growth in one of our newest branch territories, one that is quickly growing and has the potential to soon become one of our largest branch offices,” Select Security president Steve Firestone, said in a prepared statement. “In addition to the customers, we also gained a highly talented group of account executives and technicians who are a great addition to our local team.”

The purchase also brings a new branch location for the company in downtown Charlotte, where Select Security will be consolidating all Western North Carolina operations, the announcement noted.

“This acquisition was an easy fold-in to the Charlotte operations,” Roger Parks, executive director of business development and regional sales manager, said in the announcement. “I’m always on the lookout for companies like this with a strong and loyal customer base, talented team already in place, and an owner who is looking to profit from their years of hard work by partnering with a company like Select Security that places a great emphasis on making the transition easy for the customer, employees, and seller.”

Select Security was founded in 2003 and now serves nearly 30,000 customers across North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
