American Access & Integration Acquires Quintron’s Security Systems Division
The acquisition is expected to enable American Access & Integration to enhance sales in Quintron’s current access integration channel.
LENEXA, Kansas – American Access and Integration, an affiliate of American Direct Procurement, has acquired the security systems division of Quintron Systems.
American Direct’s position as a national provider of architectural doors, frames and hardware, along with Quintron Systems relationships with commercial integrators, presents new opportunities for company growth and innovation in the door openings industry, the company said.
“In conjunction with Quintron’s dealers, this acquisition enables us to enhance sales in Quintron’s current access integration channel,” says Byron Whetstone, American Direct president. “And with American Direct’s nationwide footprint and expertise in designing, building and managing any door-opening project, we can now offer full-service solutions for total security integration – from the physical door, frame and locking devices to electronic access control.”
Quintron Systems’ electronic access control brand, AccessNsite Security Management, delivers software and best-of-breed hardware to serve the growing needs of the rapidly changing security market, according to the company. AccessNsite is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux and Mac) and database-independent modular access control solution that can protect facilities of all sizes.
“The American Direct partnership equips Quintron and its partners to approach the door opening in a new, more innovative way. No longer are we just drilling holes in a pre-existing opening and installing electronics,” says James St. Pierre, vice president of sales and marketing, Quintron. “We now can offer turnkey integration in every facet of the opening. And with our powerful partnerships with Mercury Security, Assa Abloy, Allegion, and others, the possibilities are endless.”
Terms of the deal, which was effective Jan. 1, were not disclosed. Dave Sylvester, president of 3SE, an M&A brokerage business focused on the physical security market place, provided council on the transaction.
