Chorus Secures Two Acquisitions
Birmingham-based security provider expands with two area acquisitions Birmingham, Alabama – December 2, 2021 – Chorus SmartSecure, a local security and SmartHome provider, announced today the acquisition of two Birmingham-area security companies, making it one of the fastest-growing security providers in the Southeast.
Gem Alarm Systems of Alton, AL and OnGuard Security of Birmingham were acquired on November 12 and November 30, respectively. Rob Hardman, president of Chorus SmartSecure said, “We couldn’t be more excited for how these two moves help us grow our footprint in metro Birmingham and propel Chorus toward our strategic goals.” Hardman added, “Jeff Milam (of Gem Alarm Systems) and Jon Hinds (of OnGuard Security) have both done an outstanding job of building a great business and serving their customers extremely well. We’re honored to continue the great work they started.”
Jeff Milam, president of Gemas Alarm said, !When it’s time to sell your business, you never think you’ll be able to find a company that shares your values perfectly, but that’s exactly what we found with the team at Chorus.” OnGuard founder Jon Hinds noted, “Rob and the Team at Chorus were a perfect fit. Our customers are in good hands with Chorus.”
The acquisition makes the third in less than 12 months for Chorus, who acquired Southeast Alarm in December of 2020. This rapid growth has been fueled its capital partner Key 7 Investment Company, a private equity firm that emerged from the sale of Wayne’s Pest Control in 2019. Steven Splawn, CEO of Key 7 said, “Rob and his team are rapidly building a world-class organization that is poised for significant growth while creating lasting value for its customers.”
