SDI Teams With Investment Firms to Pursue Public Sector Projects
CHICAGO — Investments from private equity firms LLR Partners and Monument Capital Group (MCG) will help systems integrator System Development Integration (SDI) grow its business in the public sector technology market.
SDI will use the investments to expand its footprint globally through acquisitions, according to a company press release.
Started in 1989, SDI provides large-scale application and infrastructure deployments for state and local governments. With expertise in public safety and homeland security solutions, the company designs, builds and operates command centers, physical security information management systems (PSIM), video surveillance and other technologies. Its client portfolio includes airports, water utilities, toll authorities, public school systems, 911 centers and public transit systems.
To complement SDI’s growing network of industry advisors and vendor partners, the co-investors created a hands-on advisory board. Designed to help the integrator drive global government market growth, the board will draw upon extensive domestic and international experience.
“Customers with complex security needs come to depend on experts like SDI for strategic advice and guidance as well as operational support,” says Jason Rigoli, managing director, MCG. “We are in the early stages of a technology revolution in the security industry where smart devices and analytical software are increasing the effectiveness of critical infrastructure protection while driving down the cost. Trusted advisors with deep competencies in these technical domains are needed on a global scale. We see the need in every country in which we operate.”
