The leading Mid-South integrator will be joined with Red Hawk Fire & Security, further strengthening ADT’s commercial and national accounts segments.
BOCA RATON, Fla. — ADT (NYSE: ADT) has acquired Advanced Cabling Systems of North Little Rock, Ark., for undisclosed terms.
Advanced Cabling Systems — an SSI 2018 Installer of the Year runner-up — is one of the leading technology security integration companies in the mid-south region and will be joined with Red Hawk Fire & Security, which ADT acquired in 2018.
Founded in 1997, Advanced Cabling Systems has regional offices in Lowell, Ark.; Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla.; and, Ozark, Mo. The company specializes in the installation and service of integrated systems including structured cabling, fire alarm systems, A/V, video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, intercom/paging systems, nurse call and infant protection systems.
“The addition of Advanced is part of our focus on commercial growth and underscores both ADT’s and Red Hawk’s focus on leveraging technology to deliver superior customer service and support to commercial and enterprise-level organizations, particularly those with multiple U.S. locations,” says ADT Commercial Executive Vice President Dan Bresingham.
Starting as a structured cabling company and evolving with technology, Advanced Cabling Systems now offers a full range of integrated systems and has earned exceptional customer loyalty as a fire and security integrator, according to an announcement.
“The move is positive proof that aligning with ADT elevates Red Hawk’s ability to showcase its products and services to a wider range of clients while increasing our overall geographic footprint and dedicated technician workforce to be the premier single point of contact for all our customers’ fire, life safety and security needs,” said Michael McWilliams, senior vice president, Red Hawk Fire & Security, ADT Commercial.
