South Western Communications (SWC), a critical communications integrator, announced the acquisition of All Systems, an integrated communications technology, advanced life safety and security company specializing in healthcare, education, commercial and houses of worship.

The purchase will expand SWC's footprint to the Kansas and Missouri markets serving the Kansas City, Columbia, and Wichita areas in addition to its current branches in Atlanta; Decatur, Ala.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Nashville, Tenn; Louisville, Ky.; Indianapolis; and headquarters in Evansville, Ind.

"SWC would like to welcome All Systems to SWC's portfolio of offices," said SWC President Todd Lucy. "All Systems has a rich, 40- year heritage of attracting talented team members to serve the critical communications needs of schools, hospitals, and businesses in the Kansas and Missouri markets. We look forward to partnering with them to expand resources in our ongoing effort to improve services to our customers."

SWC's acquisition of All Systems aligned with its strategic growth initiative to diversify its business and service area.

“All Systems is excited to become part of SWC,” said All Systems Vice President David Govro. “Our long time partnership in the industry has enabled both organizations to gain from shared knowledge and shared best practices. Now by combining forces into one company, we will be able to provide not only the best of breed products, but also a depth of expertise like no other systems integration firm in the region. The excellence that our clients have come to expect from All Systems will continue, and we will have broader resources to meet their needs in the future.”
