SecurAmerica is a privately-held, US-based premium contract security services company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. The company was founded by Frank Argenbright, a Georgia entrepreneur who, over the past 40 years, has built both security and facilities management companies with operations around the world, beginning with Argenbright Security in 1979 – which he grew to $1B in revenue, 204 offices worldwide and 52,000 employees. His companies have spanned a variety of sectors – security, staffing, transportation, facilities management and aviation services.
Argenbright launched SecurAmerica in 2005 with the goal of becoming the first US-based, privately-held security services company to compete globally. SecurAmerica is now a national player in the contract security industry, operating in 35 markets and more than 800 locations. In 2014, SecurAmerica acquired American Security Programs, a wholly-owned subsidiary that services cleared commercial and government contracts. SecurAmerica’s government division provides a wide range of asset protection and security services to the governmental sector and commercially cleared clients and possesses top levels of federal security clearances and relationships with government agencies including the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Institutes of Health and the Federal Protective Service. Historically, Argenbright companies have provided security services for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency.
