USA Security Services, Paramus, N.J., acquired the customer contracts and certain select assets of Advanced Security Systems, in Tenafly, N.J. Joseph E. Fiscella, president of USA Security, announced the acquisition, and described it as “the perfect fit” for USA Security’s book of business.

Advanced Security, established in 1976, has more than 2,000 accounts, operating on the fringes of USA Security’s service area. The company says this acquisition will increase USA Security’s residential presence substantially. Several Advanced Security employees will be relocated to USA Security’s facility in Paramus.

“We have been preparing for months for this acquisition,” Fiscella said. “I can remember Advanced being a formidable competitor in the 80’s and 90’s, and I am happy that Brian Kelly, president of Advanced, decided to look to USA and its 50 years of experience to make this deal."

Kelly plans to continue with USA Security in a sales and consulting capacity. USA Security intends to bring all of its policies, procedures and expertise to the acquired customers of Advanced Security. Advanced Security Systems will be considered a division of USA Security Services.
