Martin Security Systems was founded by Robert Martin in 1984, and has served the region over the past 36 years. Mr. Martin’s sons, Rich and Rob Martin, have joined the Per Mar team, along with Jan Graves. The company will continue to serve customers out of Martin Security’s existing office.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“Robert has built a great company and wonderful team. We look forward to serving his loyal customers, and expanding service offerings,” said Per Mar Security Services COO Brian Duffy.
