An Interview With the Owner
A Message from the Owner
Over the last 20 years, a lot has changed in the security industry marketplace. Larger companies are expanding not only their footprints through the acquisitions of smaller companies, but as new technologies are developed, companies are integrating services including cable, VoIP, fire, integration, as well as security services. As these technology trends merge, the integrations are creating more consolidation of services as providers are more frequently offering a packaging of services.
Those who have not succeeded in the security industry and related businesses are providers who are slow to react to the dynamic technology environment. Staying “on your toes” is key to appropriate positioning. Having the right affiliations with industry leaders who are alert to this dynamic marketplace is critical to insuring that as the market “flexes”, the partners are responsive to these, at often times, subtle changes.
After over 20 years in this dynamic marketplace, AFS has been instrumental in helping both buyers and sellers respond quickly and profitably to these industry changes. AFS has the experience and the sensitivity to respond to the pulse of the industry. AFS has the experience and proven record in bringing the right buyers and sellers together, facilitating synergies for long-term success.
I look forward to the opportunity to help your business respond to this dynamic technology industry. Whether you are looking for capital to help your security business grow, invest in other opportunities or sell your business to move on to “bigger and better things”, AFS is strategically positioned to take your business forward.
Rory Russell, Owner, AFS
