NASHVILLE, Tenn.—ADS Security completed its first acquisition of 2016, bringing in 1,300 accounts from Security and Fire Equipment Co. (SAFECO) of Northport, Ala.

"SAFECO’s commitment to providing customers with outstanding service makes them a great fit for ADS,” says ADS president and CEO John Cerasuolo said in a prepared statement. "They have been serving their community for fourteen years, and we are proud to introduce SAFECO customers to the local ADS Tuscaloosa team.”

This acquisition brings the company’s total number of accounts in Alabama to about 21,300 accounts, the company said. ADS acquired about 6,500 accounts in Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia last year, including accounts from Integrated Systems and Bridgecom. In 2014, ADS acquired five security companies across the Southeast totaling approximately 6,400 accounts, the company said in the announcement.

The purchased accounts will be monitored from ADS’ UL-listed, CSAA Five Diamond central based here, and serviced by ADS’ Tuscaloosa, Ala., office.
