Cook & Boardman Acquires Texas-Based 3Sixty Integrated
The transaction marks the fourth of the month for Cook & Boardman following its purchases of Universal Manufacturing, Bass Security and BlueViolet Networks.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Cook & Boardman Group, a specialty distributor of commercial door entry solutions and systems integration services, announces the acquisition of San Antonio-based 3Sixty Integrated. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 2002 by Joseph Ndesandjo, 3Sixty is an enterprise security and systems integrator specializing in video surveillance, electronic access control, alarm and critical communications. The company serves healthcare, banking, retail and education customers throughout Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico and Alabama.
“We are thrilled to welcome 3Sixty to the Cook & Boardman family of companies,” says Darrin Anderson, CEO of C&B. “They are widely recognized for their commitment to quality, integrity and the highest level of customer service and they fit perfectly into our strategy of offering nationwide security integration services. We look forward to having the 3Sixty team as the newest members of the Cook and Boardman family.”
3Sixty CEO Will Duke adds, “We share a vision with Cook & Boardman that helping enterprises navigate today’s complex security challenges requires a different approach. Our success is tied to the strategic partnerships we develop with clients through the application of our 3Sixty Security Framework and our proven process for helping shape and deliver on their security vision. We’re excited to work with Cook & Boardman to expand our capabilities and continue driving extraordinary value for clients.”
CEO Duke will continue to lead the organization post acquisition and the company will operate under the 3Sixty name. Customer contacts will remain unchanged.
“This acquisition recognizes twenty years of remarkable contributions by our team members. We live our core values represented by the acronym SOLID: Serve Others, Outstanding Attitude, Learn and Grow, Incredible Initiative and Dream Big,” comments Ndesandjo, “which has helped create an amazing culture where team members strive to inspire greatness in themselves and everyone around them.”
Cook & Boardman is a portfolio company of Littlejohn & Co. 3Sixty represents C&B’s eighteenth acquisition since being acquired by Littlejohn in October 2018 and the fourth this month.
