Day & Zimmermann acquire South Shore Security Systems

Day & Zimmermann Security Services, a leading provider of managed security services, today announced it has completed the acquisition of South Shore Security Systems , a Massachusetts-based security firm. The acquisition expands Day & Zimmermann Security Services' presence in the Boston area, and bolsters its portfolio in the commercial real estate industry.

"This acquisition is another step in our strategy of accelerating growth by increasing both the depth and breadth of our service portfolio," says John Sacht , President of Day & Zimmermann Security Services. "This move adds proven talent to our existing Boston leadership team and exciting opportunities with quality-focused clients, both of which will help to continue our dynamic growth in the Boston area."

The South Shore Quincy office will merge with Day & Zimmermann's existing operations in Cambridge, and will add a Worcester, Mass., branch to Day & Zimmermann's roster. South Shore's employees and support staff will remain in their current positions, including owner Anthony Froio, who will stay on as a District Manager for Day & Zimmermann. Mr. Froio will report to Day & Zimmermann Regional Vice President, Marc Bognar.

Day & Zimmermann Security Services is the 12thlargest security company in the U.S., and provides managed security services, including armed and unarmed guards and roving patrols, to a diverse customer base of industrial and commercial facilities, utilities and refineries, corporate campuses, high-rise office buildings, and government agencies, among others.
