Experienced Leaders. Passionate Teams. Continuous Innovation.
Becklar’s history is steeped in innovation, caring, and helping others. Located in Ogden, Utah, we’re proud to call Utah’s silicone slopes home! Our connection to the West runs deep, even in our name. Our name, Becklar, is derived from the Bechler River in Yellowstone National Park, where our founder, Josh Garner, enjoyed peaceful days fishing with his father.
Becklar’s journey goes back 40 years to when monitoring company ‘AvantGuard’ began operations in Ogden, Utah. Our pioneering spirit has guided us ever since, from acquiring Freeus, the leading North American provider of mobile personal emergency response systems (PERS), to establishing Becklar, to uniting the complimentary Freeus and AvantGuard businesses – and future acquisitions – into one entity. In 2020, BV Investment Partners, a tech-focused private equity firm, became Becklar’s majority shareholder. Their guidance has fueled our rapid growth and enabled Becklar to provide enterprise-scale solutions based on industry-leading technology.
