United Technologies Completes Acquisition of Rentokil Initial Division


UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp., announces the completion of its purchase of Britain’s Rentokil Initial electronic security business units located in the Netherlands, U.K. and United States for $1.16 billion

The acquisition of Initial Electronic Security Group’s (IESG) French business remains conditional upon French regulatory approval, the company says. IESG sells integrated security, intrusion detection, CCTV and access control systems, and security software.
