Cook & Boardman Group, a specialty distributor of commercial door entry solutions and systems integration services, has announced the acquisition of Bedford Heights, Ohio-based Bass Security Services. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bass to the Cook & Boardman family of companies,” said Darrin Anderson, CEO of C&B. “They fit perfectly into our strategy of broadening our security integration services nationwide and we look forward to providing their employees with additional resources and expanded opportunities.”
Founded in 1975 by Dale Bass, Bass Security is a national provider of custom CCTV and burglar/fire alarm security integration solutions, locksmith and hardware break/fix services. The company serves loss prevention, facilities management and new construction needs of customers throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico through a network of 5000-plus field technicians.
“Bass Security was established on three core values — accountability, continuous improvement and teamwork,” said company founder and CEO Dale Bass. “This model has served us well and we see the same commitment to excellence in Cook & Boardman. We are proud to join them as they continue to transform the industry.”
The company will continue to operate under the Bass Security name and customer contacts will remain unchanged as a result of the acquisition.
Cook & Boardman is a portfolio company of Littlejohn & Co., LLC. Bass represents C&B’s sixteenth acquisition since being acquired by Littlejohn in October 2018.
