The Cook & Boardman Group, a specialty distributor of commercial door entry solutions and systems integration services, has announced the acquisition of Fountain Valley, Calif.-based BlueViolet Networks.

Founded in 1979 by John Paul, BlueViolet is a security and systems integrator providing a wide range of services including enterprise communications, access control and intelligent surveillance systems to educational, governmental, distribution and hospitality clients throughout California and across North America.

“BlueViolet Networks is a full-service provider that supports our clients with a staff of consultants, project managers, trainers, and highly skilled, expert engineers,” said founder and CEO John Paul. “This model has served us well and we see the same commitment to excellence in Cook & Boardman. We are proud to join C&B as they continue to transform the security and systems integration industry.”

 The company will continue to operate under the BlueViolet name and customer contacts will remain unchanged as a result of the acquisition.

“We are excited to welcome BlueViolet to the Cook & Boardman family of companies,” said Darrin Anderson, CEO of Cook & Boardman. “They are highly regarded for their technical expertise and excellent customer service and they will play a key role in our plans to extend our security integration services nationwide. We look forward to providing their employees with additional resources and expanded opportunities across our organization.”

Cook & Boardman is a portfolio company of Littlejohn & Co., LLC. BlueViolet represents C&B’s fifteenth acquisition since being acquired by Littlejohn in October 2018.
