ADS Purchases Accounts of RTC Secure, a Ringgold Telephone Co. Division

The newly acquired accounts, located in northern Georgia, will be serviced from the ADS Chattanooga, Tenn., office.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — ADS Security, a regional electronic security and automation company based here, has acquired the security accounts of RTC Secure, a division of Ringgold Telephone Co., in Ringgold, Ga. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

RTC Secure customers will be serviced out of the ADS Chattanooga, Tenn., office and have access to the company’s 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.

“I can think of no better company for us to partner with than RTC,” says John Cerasuolo, ADS president and CEO, in an announcement. “Their long history of providing outstanding customer support aligns well with our commitment to delivering legendary service. We are delighted to welcome these new customers to our ADS family.”

The transaction marks ADS’s first acquisition in 2018, following the company’s four deals in 2017 and six in 2016. SSI profiled ADS in the February 2017 publication to learn more about how the firm goes about its business and courts prospective acquirees.

“It all comes around to culture, and grounding the company in our foundation – that rock-solid commitment to doing things the right way, and always behaving with integrity, taking care of our customers and employees,” Cerasuolo explained in the article. “That gets hard to do as you grow, even if you find good companies to bring into the fold through acquisitions and are careful about hiring. You still have to steep those new folks in the culture. The key is not losing connection to what got us here.”
