Parsippany, New Jersey (March 27, 2014) – SOS Security LLC (“SOS”), one of the largest security companies in the U.S., is pleased to announce its recent acquisition of Marill Security Services (‘Marill”). Founded in 1980 and headquartered in Boca Raton, FL, Marill is one of South Florida’s largest privately-owned security companies. Marill has successfully provided a wide-range of customized residential, commercial and specialized security services to organizations throughout the Florida market. Through this acquisition, SOS will transition approximately 400 licensed security officers, servicing over 50 clients.
“The decision to sell my company was made easier by the passion that SOS senior management displays in servicing their clients”, said James Gordon, President of Marill. Mr. Gordon further stated, “SOS shares many of the same values that have made both our companies a success: hands-on, quality service supported by an outstanding management team. I look forward to working with SOS and utilizing their extensive domestic footprint and diverse services to bring greater value to Marill’s clients.”
Edward B. Silverman, SOS’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Marill is a perfect strategic fit for our company. Led by a seasoned management team, they have displayed consistent growth in the Florida market. Marill’s family-style approach to catering to their clients’ needs is consistent with SOS’s philosophy.” Mr. Silverman continued, “Marill’s expertise in servicing real estate owners and managers will enhance SOS’s real estate service offering. We are thrilled to have Marill’s management team join SOS and continue to run the day-to-day operations of their business, which ensures Marill’s clients will continue to receive the same outstanding service levels to which they are accustomed.”
The acquisition of Marill will further support SOS’s commitment to the South Florida and Latin American markets, where SOS currently provides the security services to Fortune 1000 companies, as well as the Department of State for the U.S. Embassy and Consulates throughout Brazil.
