EPS Security acquires Video-Tech-Tronics (VTT)

July 26, 2018
Acquisition adds more than 1,500 accounts

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., June 19, 2018— EPS Security acquired former Comstock Park, MI-based competitor, Video-Tech-Tronics (VTT), last month, and in doing so welcomed 1,500 new business and residential customers to the EPS family. The acquisition includes business operations only; it did not include VTT’s facilities located at 859 West River Center Drive in Comstock Park.

The acquisition will bolster the growing market share of EPS as a leading commercial and residential security provider. The newly acquired VTT customers will strengthen EPS Security’s customer base to more than 28,300, cementing EPS Security as the largest family-owned security provider in Michigan and among the largest in the U.S.

“VTT’s growth over the past 24 years has been predominantly internal, stemming from the referrals of our client base,” said Chris Johnson, President of VTT “We decided to seek this acquisition by a larger company as it will allow us to provide a wider array of high-tech services and products to our customers. It will also offer more opportunity to our employees as they continue their careers.”

VTT will add thirteen new employees to the EPS Security team; nine of which are highly skilled security system technicians. The added staff allows EPS to be more responsive and efficient for its new and existing customers throughout the state of Michigan.

“Chris Johnson and his outstanding team at VTT are wonderful additions to EPS Security and we are proud to welcome them. VTT has an excellent reputation with their customers and within the community. I could not be more excited about this partnership!” said Kevin Carlson, President of EPS Security.

In the near future, EPS will begin moving VTT customers subscribed to 24/7 monitoring services to EPS Security’s owned and operated Monitoring Center in Grand Rapids, MI.
