Sciens Building Solutions, based in San Francisco, has acquired Absolute Protective Systems, located in Piscataway, N.J. 

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. 

Sciens' presence in the northeast market is already well-established with its Philadelphia-area division, Electronic Security Solutions, which Absolute Protective Systems will partner closely with on customer relationships and cross-collaboration projects. 

Established in 1978 by Paul Smoley, Absolute offers a full range of fire sprinklers, fire and security alarm systems, suppression systems, access control, video surveillance and monitoring systems. The company staffs a highly skilled team of fire and security integration professionals, according to an announcement. 

"Absolute is pleased to join Sciens to continue our growth and success by working alongside its experienced leadership team and leveraging the investments they will provide to support our common goals," said Glenn Pascullo, Absolute's general manager. "Sciens' mission to expand across the United States and serve customers locally, regionally, and nationally is well-aligned with Absolute's direction and we look forward to accomplishing even more growth together." 

Absolute's work spans across several sectors, including industrial manufacturing facilities, retail properties, commercial office space, multi-dwelling units, hotels and restaurants. 

"Since recently surpassing 1,000 Sciens employees nationwide and now welcoming the talented Absolute team, Sciens remains focused on organic growth and finding elite companies to join our rapidly growing North American platform," said Terry Heath, Sciens' CEO. "We continue to integrate quality companies like Absolute, while remaining focused on stellar customer service and top-notch industry expertise."

This most recent acquisition follows Sciens' purchase of Mira Loma, Calif.-based Time and Alarm Systems (TAS) in May.
