Purchase adds 600 new accounts to company's customer portfolio.

ADS Security on Thursday announced that it has acquired customer accounts from Stewart Security Systems in Shelbyville, Tenn. The acquisition adds nearly 600 accounts to the company’s Middle Tennessee customer base. This purchase is the fourth acquisition for ADS this year following the acquisition of a South Carolina security company in April and two Alabama security companies in March.

"Middle Tennessee is home to our corporate headquarters and monitoring center, so we are proud to grow our business locally in Middle Tennessee," said ADS President and CEO John Cerasuolo. "We focus our acquisition efforts on companies with an excellent reputation within their community and Stewart Security Systems fits that bill perfectly.”

"I chose to sell the electronic security division of Stewart Inc. to ADS because they are a local company with a renowned history within the security alarm industry," said Stewart Inc. owner Mike Stewart. “We look forward to partnering with ADS on projects in the Shelbyville community.”

The purchased accounts will be serviced out of ADS’ Nashville office. A Stewart Security Systems technician has joined the ADS team and will continue to serve their Shelbyville customers.
