Securadyne Systems Acquires Leading Systems Integrator, Expands Footprint in U.S. Southeast
Securadyne Systems, Dallas, Texas, completed the acquisition of Advanced Control Concepts, Inc., (“ACC”), a Florida-based security systems integrator. The ACC acquisition is the third for Securadyne, which was founded in September 2011 in partnership with Pamlico Capital.
“The ACC transaction is an important step for us as we expand our geographic footprint in the Eastern US,” explained Carey Boethel, president and chief executive officer of Securadyne Systems. “This addition improves our ability to deliver high-end, fully integrated solutions in the Southeast region and with the U.S. Federal Government nationally. Not only is it highly synergistic with our existing service lines, but it also significantly improves our fire/life safety expertise.”
ACC was founded in 1985 by Jeff Taylor and Scott Walker. The company operates out of its headquarters in Pensacola, Fla. and serves surrounding areas such as Panama City, Ft. Walton Beach, Mobile, Biloxi, Gulfport and New Orleans. Core competencies include access control, video surveillance, intrusion detection, security communications and fire/life safety solutions.
Jeff Taylor, who will remain with the company in a regional management role, stated, “We are pleased to be joining Securadyne Systems and are excited about the growth potential made possible by this combination.”
Barry Epstein of Vertex Capital represented ACC in the transaction.
