Trio of ADT Authorized Dealers Merge to Create Nationwide Footprint
SafeStreetsUSA, Gaylord Security and ASC Security USA have merged their businesses and will operate under the name SafeStreetsUSA.
GARNER, N.C. – Three of ADT’s largest and most established authorized dealers have merged their businesses.
The combined operations of SafeStreetsUSA, Gaylord Security and ASC Security USA – now operating under the name SafeStreetsUSA – will cover more than 90% of the U.S. population in 39 states, according to a press release.
In addition to a broad geographic footprint, the new SafeStreets will leverage the strengths of all three businesses – operational excellence, call center marketing and door-to-door sales, according to the press release.
SafeStreetsUSA was founded by Todd Herman, Barry Simmons and Michael Robson; Gaylord Security was founded by Kevin Gaylord; and ASC Security USA was founded by Mark Sessa. Each of the businesses have been in the ADT dealer program practically from its inception in 1996.
“We had a unique opportunity to combine these businesses and grow our footprint. We think this will provide several operational efficiencies, cost reductions and longer term marketing opportunities for us,” Herman says. “We combined many of our systems day one and see further opportunities for operational enhancements and cost synergies.”
Gaylord and Sessa will continue to provide executive leadership for SafeStreets going forward.
The combined company will operate principally from offices in Garner, N.C., and Kent, Wash., with other administrative functions performed in Riverside, Calif.
