The Boczar family's involvement in security management services began in 1970, and we have enjoyed a high level of name recognition throughout the industry, the result of earning our excellent reputation every day for quality service.
Founded in 1970 by Lorraine E. Boczar and Edward L. Boczar, AM-GARD has established itself as a leading contract security firm in the governmental, healthcare, industrial, commercial, and Marcellus Shale industries. Providing customers with the very best value and service makes AM-GARD the unequivocal leader in contract security.
As the security provider for high-profile multi-national weapons and weapon system manufacturers, our operating teams are called on to meet the standards of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual as well as our customer’s stringent requirements. As our customers’ operations and products move down the supply chain, so do the complexities of their security guard requirements and AM-GARD’s security service has received excellent performance evaluations along the way.
We are proud to be 3rd generation family owned & compete with the largest companies in the industry.
