CTSI Expands Security Integration Capabilities With Acquisition
CTSI acquired the Integrated Security Solutions division of Electrical Controls & Maintenance (EC&M), a commercial electrical contractor.
CHANTILLY, Va. — Corbett Technology Solutions (CTSI), based here, has acquired the Integrated Security Solutions division of Electrical Controls & Maintenance (EC&M), a Mechanicsville, Va.-based commercial electrical contractor.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Launched in 2001, the security systems integration division enables enterprise customers, healthcare providers, government institutions, schools and universities to remain safe and secure while protecting people and property, according to an announcement.
EC&M has decades of experience and a proven record of success backed by superior service, making the Integrated Security Solutions division a perfect fit for CTSI, says Gino Ruta, president and CEO of CTSI.
“At CTSI, we’re always looking for ways to add value for our customers, and I’m tremendously excited to add the security capabilities of EC&M to our portfolio of solutions,” Ruta continues. “Their expertise, track record of excellence and commitment to service are perfectly aligned with our core values, and this is a move that certainly expands the benefits we can bring to the customers of each company.”
EC&M services each solution it sells and brings to market a dedicated, highly skilled team that works to promote the longevity of every installed system with ongoing maintenance and managed services.
With the acquisition, CTSI is adding to its ranks employees with outstanding skills, depth in engineering expertise and robust capabilities in the integration, implementation and support of integrated security systems, the announcement states. EC&M’s UL 2050 Certification enables CTSI to install solutions in SCIFs and provide end-users with the certification to put a secure facility into operation.
“CTSI’s culture and values are aligned with ours, and I have complete confidence in the company’s ability to continue delivering the level of quality and service our customers have come to expect,” says Michael L. Wynne, president and CEO of EC&M. “This acquisition would not have taken place had I not sincerely believed it would be a move that expands overall capabilities and adds value for our customers, as that has always been and will continue to be our central mission.”
Existing EC&M customers can now leverage additional capabilities to go beyond security systems and include integration services, audiovisual systems, conferencing and collaboration solutions, critical communications systems, including nurse call and real-time location systems.
The companies have a history of collaboration prior to this acquisition. At J. R. Tucker High School in Henrico, Va., the companies helped Henrico County Schools elevate its low-voltage systems to include A/V, critical communications and more. The two companies also worked together at Highland Springs High School in Highland Springs, Va., with EC&M as the electrical contractor.
