BOCA RATON, Fla. — ADT (NYSE: ADT) has completed the acquisition of San Francisco-based Acme Security Systems.
Founded in 1974, Acme is said to be among the largest privately held security systems integrators in the Bay Area, focusing on electronic security systems, access control, video networks and more.
