LAKEWOOD, Colo.--BSI2000, a provider of card-based security systems, bolstered its position within the access control market this month by acquiring DPI International's Maxx-Net product line and customers.
BSI2000 paid $650,000 in cash and did not attain any facilities, as a result of the deal. Rick Koeller, who formerly served in a sales position at DPI, has joined the company as senior sales executive.
BSI2000 previously partnered with the Denver-based access control manufacturer in November 2004, when the company announced it had licensed Maxx-Net. Under the agreement, the product was renamed Secureus2000 for the homeland security market.
At that time, BSI2000 integrated its optical card technology to the system, which resembles a credit card and can store up to four megabytes of digital information.
Customers of Maxx-Net include airports, correctional facilities, financial centers and corporate headquarters. These clients are Denver International Airport, U.S. Air Force Academy and Rocky Mountain National Park.
For the Denver International Airport, the company linked 50 buildings that feature approximately 2,000 doors and access points with 65,000 access cards. Holders of the IDs are flight crews, ground personnel, maintenance workers, vendors and security professionals.
