Company Description:

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Guardian provides complete design, installation, service, and preventative maintenance solutions for all major access control systems, including commercial gates, overhead doors, parking systems, and access control/CCTV. Guardian’s ability to serve its diversified base of commercial and high-net-worth residential customers across the complete access control spectrum, coupled with its reputation for exceptional service quality and reliability, has propelled the company to be a market leader in the Southeastern U.S., with current locations in Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Memphis, and Knoxville. Under BMC’s ownership, Guardian experienced rapid growth through key organic initiatives, in addition to executing on an established M&A playbook, including three complementary acquisitions since 2021 within the highly fragmented access control industry.
