Convergint Technologies, ranked No. 1 on SDM’s Top Systems Integrators Report, acquired New Jersey-based Access Control Technologies (ACT), bringing further electronic security systems experience to Convergint’s deep breadth of service capabilities. 

Headquartered in Clifton, N.J., ACT provides integrated security solutions involving access control, video surveillance, identity management and alarm monitoring to more than 1,000 customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania. All 38 ACT colleagues, including leaders Joe Liguori and Remo Cinquino, will be joining Convergint.

“ACT’s leadership and service-oriented focus are exactly what we look for when evaluating whether an organization is a cultural fit for Convergint Nation,” said Ken Lochiatto, CEO of Convergint Technologies. “We know our customers will benefit greatly from their professionalism and expertise, and we welcome them to Convergint.”

Convergint has strategically grown its service footprint across the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia Pacific through strong organic growth and the completion of 18 acquisitions since early 2016.  Convergint’s growth strategy is driven by its company mission of being its customers’ best service provider. It seeks out companies whose service-first cultures mirror its own, as is the case with ACT, the company described in a press release.

“Our two organizations possess a strong alignment of strategic philosophies with respect to customer satisfaction,” said Joe Liguori, senior managing partner of ACT. “Making the decision to join Convergint was an easy one. We look forward to the prospect of being a part of Convergint Technologies’ growth and adding to their capabilities.”
