ASG Security acquires Houma, La.-based Alarm Detection Systems

Houma, La.-based Alarm Detection Systems announced last week that has been acquired by ASG Security of Beltsville, Md.

According to a statement, Alarm Detection Systems is a 33-year-old company and has been the dominant alarm company in the Houma market, which is located about 60 miles southwest of New Orleans. ASG Security is one of the largest alarm companies in the U.S. and is working to build up its base of operations in Louisiana.

"This is a great fit for us. The customer base has been a part of Alarm Detection Systems for years,” said ASG CFO Ralph Masino. “Their technical and sales staff will help to grow the company as it has in the past. Important to Reuben and Dianne Williams of Alarm Detection Systems is that their employees would remain and grow with the new entity."

Assisting Alarm Detection Systems in the deal was Steve Rubin of Davis Mergers and Acquisitions Group.
