Committed to Excellence
Per Mar Security Services was originally chartered as a security and investigative business in 1953. Today, the company is a successful multi-million dollar enterprise with experience, flexibility, extensive resources, and financial strength.
John and Eleanor Duffy started Per Mar well over 50 years ago in Davenport, IA. The company’s name is derived from the words Personnel Marketing Research which was shortened to Per Mar Security & Research Corp. Our corporate office, dubbed Per Mar Centre, is still there today.
John and Eleanor’s company has grown through steadfast dedication to the community, their employees, and their customers.
Throughout our history, our focus has been very customer centric. In order for us to excel as a supplier of security services, it is vital that we thoroughly understand the needs of our customers and the products and services that they provide.
