BOCA RATON, Fla.—ADT, a provider of monitored security and interactive home and business automation solutions, announced the acquisition of Advanced Cabling Systems, a technology integration company based in North Little Rock, Ark. Advanced Cabling Systems will join forces with Red Hawk Fire & Security, which ADT acquired in December.

Founded in 1997, Advanced has regional offices in Lowell, Ark., Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Ozark, Mo., specializing in the installation and service of integrated systems including structured cabling, fire alarm systems, audio/video, CCTV, access control, intrusion detection, intercom/paging systems, nurse call and infant protection systems.

“The addition of Advanced is part of our focus on commercial growth and underscores both ADT’s and Red Hawk’s focus on leveraging technology to deliver superior customer service and support to commercial and enterprise-level organizations, particularly those with multiple U.S. locations,” ADT commercial executive vice president Dan Bresingham said in the announcement.

Starting as a structured cabling company and evolving with technology, Advanced Cabling Systems now offers a full range of integrated systems and has earned exceptional customer loyalty as a fire and security integrator.

“The move is positive proof that aligning with ADT elevates Red Hawk’s ability to showcase its products and services to a wider range of clients while increasing our overall geographic footprint and dedicated technician workforce to be the premier single point of contact for all our customers’ fire, life safety and security needs,” Michael McWilliams, senior vice president, Red Hawk Fire & Security, ADT Commercial, said.

“At Advanced our focus on technology and customer service is why we know that aligning with the most recognizable brands in the fire and security industry will allow us to better serve existing and new commercial customers,” said President of Advanced Cabling Systems Michael Kennedy.
