Atlanta, GA (October 1, 2014) – Miller Electric Company (www.mecojax.com) announced the acquisition of SiteSecure, LLC from Wharton-Smith, Inc. Construction Group at ASIS in meetings with key vendor and distribution partners.
“This merger of talent and experience allows Miller Electric Company’s Integrated Systems Division to expand our product and service offerings to our new and existing client base. The SiteSecure team brings an outstanding reputation and 12 years of expertise in the IP-based video surveillance, access control, ALPR and security management system space. With their significant client base in the Florida and Houston, TX markets, and Miller’s expanded geographic footprint and human resources, we believe the combined team will allow us to deliver the full complement of enterprise class security management systems to go along with our other electrical and systems offerings. Their expertise in network-based applications and communication environments will also expand the resources available to the Miller Critical Infrastructure Solutions group (www.millercis.com)” said David Stallings, RCDD, Vice President of Integrated Systems for Miller Electric Company.
SiteSecure will continue to operate “business as usual” with the SiteSecure leadership team now reporting to David Stallings. The customer-centric management philosophy is common to both companies so the blending of cultures is expected to be seamless. Since SiteSecure still exists as a Florida Limited Liability Corporation, existing contracts will remain in effect and all projects will progress without interruption.
“This acquisition represents a complete Win-Win for both companies. SiteSecure is now part of a company that understands what we do and values our team’s talent and expertise. Together we can expand into markets not previously accessible to SiteSecure and with intellectual property not previously available to MECO. The synergies that exist between these companies makes this transaction a no-brainer” said Jim Fairbanks, President of SiteSecure.
