NASHVILLE, TN & ATLANTA, GA – Guardian Access Solutions (“Guardian”) announced today it has acquired VP Access Gate Systems (“VPA”) from Val and Paula Moliere. VPA is a leading installer of custom gate systems in the greater Atlanta metro area with over 50 years of combined expertise in the industry. Val has joined the Guardian team and will oversee the custom automated gate division in the Georgia market.

“We are thrilled to welcome the VP Access team to the Guardian family,” said Chad Colony, CEO of Guardian, “This important acquisition enables us to increase our presence in the Atlanta marketplace and complete our customer offerings by adding custom automated gate systems to our suite of services. ”

Guardian Access Solutions, with offices in Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida, offers the most comprehensive and integrated suite of access control solutions available in the Southeast market including efficient, reliable, and secure custom automated gate systems, parking systems, commercial overhead doors, access control, video surveillance systems, and more.

“We are excited to join the Guardian team in Atlanta,” said Val Moliere, “the resources that Guardian are bringing to bear will allow us to continue our growth while providing the same high level of service to our customers.”

In early 2023, Guardian rebranded under its common banner from previously acquired Tennessee-based Access Control Systems (“ACS”), Georgia-based Access Security Parking Integrated Solutions (“ASPIS”), and Florida-based Access Control Technologies (“ACT”) of Florida, and now VP Access Gate Systems.  Guardian is a portfolio company of Brixey & Meyer Capital (“BMC”), a lower middle market investment firm investing in entrepreneurial owned business in eastern and central time region of the United States.
