PalAmerican is growing its roots in the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of Seattle based company Puget Sound Security, adding to the high-quality service already in place across Washington State.
“Puget Sound Security has been a leader in the Pacific Northwest market for over 30 years and we are very excited to welcome the great people of PSS into the PalAmerican fold,” said PalAmerican CEO Ashley Cooper.
Puget Sound Security, which includes Cascade Security and FSI Security, was established in 1981 and prides itself on being a full-service security company that delivers peace of mind to its clients. The acquisition will not only increase Seattle’s mobile footprint immensely but also add additional security resources across the entire state.
“The timing of our acquisition could not have been better as we build out a full-service security complement for our existing clients, as well as new ones,” PalAmerican President Jason Begin explained. “This truly is an exciting time for our company and a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate the PalAmerican Difference.”
THE PALAMERICAN DIFFERENCE
PalAmerican moved into the Seattle market in 2016 through a successful organic growth strategy. The acquisition of Puget Sound Security allows us to expand our services and meet the unique needs of businesses and organizations in the area.
“The security needs in the Pacific Northwest require a touch of business etiquette along with security operations excellence because the Seattle marketplace is a very sophisticated one. Clients are looking for security professionals who meet both business goals and security requirements,” explained Jennifer Ray, PalAmerican’s Director of Business Development.
The acquisition is also a chance for us to further develop the PalAmerican culture, which includes creating an environment that enhances performance and provides clients with a clear competitive advantage. We do this from the start through our 12-step selection process which ensures all of our security professionals have the proper skill set to be successful at our sites. We also are committed to the highest standards of training within the industry, which allows our team members to develop long-term careers, rather than short-term jobs.
“What we’re trying to do is show how PalAmerican stands out as a business partner in the market when it comes to security. Much of that has to do with our culture and introducing employees and clients to the PalAmerican Way,” Ray added.
GROWTH IN WASHINGTON STATE

We’re excited to develop our Washington team members with our core values and promotion-from-within philosophy, which is aimed at recognizing talent and supporting growth in order to achieve career goals.
