Per Mar Security Services, parent company to Midwest Alarm Services and a provider of total security solutions for residential and commercial clients based in Davenport, Iowa, recently acquired NECO Security based in Lincoln, Neb. The deal brings more than a half century’s worth of business and expertise into the Per Mar family.

Founded by Don Nielsen in 1957, NECO Security specializes in residential and commercial burglar and fire alarm systems in the Lincoln area. Nelson said that after 63 years in the Fire Alarm/Security industry, he is excited about “a new season” for the Nielsen family

“After careful thought and consideration, as our customers are of utmost importance, we have selected Per Mar as our successor,” Nielsen said. “Per Mar has a UL Listed, FM Approved, TMA 5 Diamond Certified Central Monitoring Center, and offers an expanded range of services to our customers. In addition, Per Mar’s company, Midwest Alarm Services, is a Premier Notifier Distributor … thus completing the perfect fit.”

Brian Duffy, COO of Per Mar Security Services, is equally excited to continue the tradition that NECO has built over the past 62 years.

“The Nielsen family has built a great company in Lincoln through years of hard work and excellent service,” he said. “We are honored that they are placing their trust in us to be stewards of the business.”

NECO Security’s Project Manager, Bill Thomas, and their technicians will be joining Midwest Alarm Services, serving customers out of Per Mar and Midwest Alarm Services local Lincoln, Neb. office.

“We are excited to have NECO Security join our organization,” said Midwest Alarm Services President Doug Richard. “NECO and Midwest Alarm Services were two of the original Notifier dealers in the U.S. The NECO team will be a great cultural fit as they have been working together for decades and have a customer first mentality. We are looking forward to working with them to continue to deliver the best service in the industry.”
