November 1, 2022: PalAmerican Security is proud to announce the acquisition of San Francisco-based ProTech Security.
As one of North America’s largest and fastest-growing security companies, PalAmerican will expand its existing presence in the San Francisco Bay Area, opening up two new offices in downtown San Francisco and downtown Oakland. With ProTech’s significant portfolio of office towers, this acquisition will further reinforce PalAmerican’s leadership role in the commercial office market sector and deepen our footprint in California following our 2020 acquisition of SmartGuard Services in Sacramento.
About ProTech Security
Founded in June 1994, ProTech Security provided professional security services to the San Francisco Bay Area commercial industry, growing from a small organization to one of the largest regional security services providers in the area. With aligned core values and a commitment to a high level of customer service, this acquisition is strategic for PalAmerican and for continuing our growth in northern California and the west coast.
Combining ProTech’s and PalAmerican’s years of experience, we are committed to guiding and maintaining our industry-leading operations, delivering the best service and value for our clients while enhancing training, support, and resources available for all employees. This expansion also provides further career advancement opportunities for our team members while extending the reach of our service offerings.
A Robust Leadership Team
We are extremely confident that the leadership team’s diverse expertise and wealth of industry experience will prove to be a valuable resource as we expand our service delivery and operations throughout the west coast. The team will also be instrumental in engaging and supporting our talented front-line staff through this transition.
Jason Begin, President of PalAmerican Security, commented, “This is a very exciting acquisition for PalAmerican Security. We are eager to expand our operations in San Francisco and Oakland while continuing to grow our presence in California.”
“I am extremely excited about this new growth as we continue down the path of building a world-class security company. Our plan is to invest more resources into our new operations to better serve our clients while offering tremendous growth and advancement opportunities for the people within our company,” said Ashley Cooper, CEO of PalAmerican Security.
Setting Up for Growth
The acquisition welcomes over 700 ProTech employees to PalAmerican. Supported by world-class employee care programs and training, we are excited to develop our San Francisco and Oakland teams with our core team values, promotion-from-within philosophy, and CARE culture.
