ADS Security has acquired the accounts of Equinox Alarm Services in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This purchase is the fourth for ADS in 2017, and marks the 4th consecutive year ADS had closed at least four acquisitions.
“We have an incredible team at ADS who works hard to make sure we are buying the right companies, and that the transition is as painless as possible for those customers,” said John Cerasuolo, ADS President and CEO. “We have known Carl and the quality of service he has provided for many years. Equinox Alarms provides an exceptional company culture and the type of legendary service we are always on the lookout for.”
Falcon Fire Systems in Charleston, SC was purchased by ADS in January. ADS closed on the customer accounts of ERMC Security Solutions in Chattanooga, TN in August. Just last month, PMI Security in New Bern, NC was purchased by ADS. This follows a record-setting acquisition year for ADS in 2016, where ADS added 8,000 accounts across 6 purchases and opened two new locations in Dothan, AL and Sanford, NC.
Equinox customers will have access to the ADS advanced suite of residential and commercial services. ADS offers an industry-leading mobile app and online web portal, smart home technologies, video surveillance, and access control solutions. Additionally, ADS has an elite, Five Diamond monitoring center located in Nashville, Tennessee, where customers can call and speak to a live person, 24/7/365.
The customers will be serviced out of the ADS Tuscaloosa office located at 711 Black Bears Way, Suite C, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401. Equinox Alarm Services owner, Carl Grantham, will be joining the ADS Security team in Tuscaloosa in a technician role. Equinox customers are currently being introduced and welcomed to ADS.
