PITTSBURGH—Vector Security Inc., an integrator of intelligent physical security and home automation solutions, has acquired Guardian Force Security Services LLC, a provider of professional security services in Southeast and East Texas, with locations in Nederland and Lufkin.

The acquisition expands Vector Security’s presence in the Gulf District, which already includes branches in Dallas as well as in Shreveport and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

“We officially welcome the teams and customers from Guardian Force as part of the Vector Security family,” Pam Petrow, president and CEO of Vector Security, said in the announcement. “While we look forward to expanding the Vector Security brand in Texas, our newly-acquired customers will benefit from the strength of our national resources delivered locally, as we believe that a local presence is important to providing responsive, quality customer service.”

“Guardian Force employees and customers will become part of Vector Security, giving them access to a wider range of home and business security solutions—including the latest in home automation—all with a focus on the regional support that communities want and need,” Robert M. McMurrey, CEO of Guardian Force Security Services, said in the announcement. “I am confident that Vector Security will provide the quality products and services customers have come to expect from Guardian Force since the late 1980s.”

Vector Security is actively involved in the security industry, including Petrow’s service as president of The Monitoring Association—formerly the Central Station Alarm Association.

Vector Security, a sister company of the Philadelphia Contributionship, a mutual insurance company founded in 1752, currently provides technology-based security solutions to more than 300,000 homes and businesses. Through Vector Security Networks, the company also offers customized managed broadband services that lay the foundation for business intelligence.
