Tri-Ed/Northern Video Distribution acquires Martin’s Security Depot

Security products distributors Tri-Ed and Northern Video Systems, which were brought together earlier this year following their acquisition by a Dallas-based private equity firm, announced this week that they are expanding with the addition of Martin’s Security Depot.

A California-based distributor, Martin’s Security Depot and its sales staff will be integrated with Tri-Ed/Northern Video’s Union City, Calif., branch, according to a statement issued by the company.

In addition, the company announced that it is offering customers a “free welcome gift” with their first purchase at the newly consolidated Union City branch.

"We firmly believe that Tri-Ed/Northern Video Distribution will provide a more significant distribution solution for the security industry," said Pat Comunale, the company’s chief operating officer. "This newly expanded Union City branch is indicative of our commitment and the first of many more value-added offerings for our customers to come."
