BOCA RATON, Fla.—ADT announced on March 2 the completed acquisition of Aronson Security Group Inc. (ASG), a national integrator based in Renton, Wash., that has been in business for 55 years and has nearly 170 employees.

This is one of the largest acquisitions for ADT in the commercial integration space, as the company has been very active over the past year with several deals closing in 2017.

“Our commercial growth strategy incorporates acquisitions that bring both talent and resources to ADT that will not only extend our capabilities, but also serve as the right cultural fit with our customer-centric philosophy," ADT president, Jim DeVries, said in the ADT announcement. "We see Phil Aronson and his team at Aronson Security Group a great add to the ADT family in those regards—highly experienced in the integrated security solution market, tremendous leadership capabilities, and a true passion for the customer—all the right components as we focus on strategic growth.”

As a provider of Security Risk Management Services (SRMS), the ASG team includes risk and security program consultants, advanced integration services, consulting and design engineers and a national program management team, as well as technicians and business development and project managers, who work from locations across the United States.

“Our goal from the beginning was to create exceptional value for the security executive and their team, and change how the industry advanced that value into the business,” Phil Aronson, ASG CEO and president, said in a prepared statement. “ADT provides a unique platform for us to continue to focus on customers with scale in new geographic and vertical markets. I share a great deal of excitement with our leadership team for our employees and our customers to come together with an industry leader like ADT.”
