Martin Security began in 1980 when Ron Martin, an Alarm Central Station Manager for several large alarm companies in Southern California and the Bay Area, relocated to Chester, CA. He started installing fire and security systems in the Lake Almanor area. His home based business employed his wife, Jean, as book keeper and his two sons, Scott and Greg, who worked weekends and summers.
In 1983 Martin Security purchased the security division of Walker Lock
& Security that was based in Susanville. The company grew over the
years and Scott officially started working full time for the business in
In 1999, Scott took over installation operations. In the fall of 2006, Martin Security was incorporated with Scott as the President. Since 1992 the company has tripled by providing professional, big city security to smaller, out of the way, rural locations. Since 1980 Martin Security has been a family run business with family values.
