Per Mar Security Services: More Locations, Same Great Customer Satisfaction

February 6, 2018

Per Mar has been a Family Business Center member since 2016 and we thank them for the family business knowledge they bring to our programs.

Customer satisfaction is important to every business, but for Per Mar Security, it is absolutely essential. Ever since the company was founded in 1953 by John and Eleanor Duffy, Per Mar has dedicated itself to providing the very best security services possible to ensure that all of the individuals, families, and companies that utilize those services are 100 percent satisfied.

When Jon and Eleanor first launched Per Mar Security from their home in Davenport, Iowa, there is no way they could have imagined the company would grow to the size and scope it maintains today while still staying true to its founder’s roots. There are now 23 Per Mar branches across the Midwest including Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Nebraska. The company’s headquarters, however, remains in downtown Davenport.

The company has grown so much that it is officially recognized as the largest family owned full-service security provider in the Midwest! However, even with this tremendous growth, Per Mar still makes sure it gives back to the communities it is active in.

Eleanor Duffy started this tradition when she founded the Quad City Diabetes Association in 1971, and in 1980 Per Mar started its own Charity Fund. The fund matches dollar-for-dollar any donations its employees contribute to charities, which has surpassed over one million dollars!

They also partner with several organizations in their communities including the American Heart Association, the Make a Wish Foundation, and the Autism Society. In 2017, Per Mar even received the Honeywell Community Service Award for its charity efforts!

Even with having over 40,000 customers, Per Mar knows that to continue to be successful, it will have to continue to maintain its exceptional level of customer service. By continuing to stay true to its roots and maintaining its strong community presence, we do not doubt Per Mar will continue to achieve tremendous success.
