ADS acquires accounts of Shelbyville company

Nashville-based security systems entity adds about 600 customers with move

ADS Security has acquired the customer accounts from Shelbyville, Tennessee-based Stewart Security Systems for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition, announced Thursday, adds nearly 600 accounts to Nashville-based ADS’s Middle Tennessee customer base, according to a release. It is ADS’s fourth acquisition this year following the purchase of a South Carolina security company in April and two Alabama security companies in March.

"Middle Tennessee is home to our corporate headquarters and monitoring center, so we are proud to grow our business locally in [the region]," ADS President and CEO John Cerasuolo said in the release. "We focus our acquisition efforts on companies with an excellent reputation within their community, and Stewart Security Systems fits that bill perfectly.”

The accounts will be serviced out of ADS’s Nashville office. A Stewart Security Systems technician has joined ADS and will continue to serve the Shelbyville customers.
