Interface Security Systems Holdings Inc. announced that its subsidiary, alarm company Interface Security Systems LLC, acquired the assets of Hawk Security Services, one of the largest independent security companies in Texas.
While details of the transaction are confidential, Interface’s investors, lead by Dallas-based equity sponsor SunTx Capital Partners, provided equity financing for the transaction and CapitalSource LLC arranged the debt financing.
Interface provides installation, maintenance and monitoring services to both commercial and residential customers in eight Midwest states and in California. It also provides fully integrated intrusion, fire, managed access control and interactive video surveillance systems to large commercial customers.
Interface merged with Irvine, Calif., alarm company Greater Alarm nearly a year ago.
“Hawk Security not only gives us a major presence in the vibrant and fast-growing Dallas/Fort Worth area, but also adds market share to our existing branch operations in East Texas as well as a new office in San Antonio,” said Michael Shaw, CEO of Interface, in a statement. “We plan to expand Hawk’s highly successful residential sales and marketing channels as well as bring Interface’s resources and skills in high-end commercial systems to bear in the market.”
