ICD Security Solutions has been acquired in full from The Brink’s Company by Convergint Technologies, a major US-based provider of security, fire alarm and building management systems integration and related professional services. The acquisition was finalized on November 21st, 2013.
ICD is now a fully-owned subsidiary of Convergint, which is headquartered outside of Chicago in the town of Schaumburg, Illinois, USA. As a united global company, we will now be able to coordinate our operations in North America and the Asia-Pacific region to deliver unprecedented worldwide support to our customers as they develop and implement their global security plans.
CEO of ICD Security Solutions Ron Efron made the following remarks about the acquisition of ICD by Convergint:
"Joining Convergint is an exciting new development for ICD! Convergint has built a
strong presence in the North American security market, just as ICD has done so for the Asia-Pacific region. This means that Convergint's acquisition of ICD will bring significant benefits to
companies who are looking for a single global security partner that can provide consistent support across multiple regions.
ICD and Convergint developed their businesses in different regions, but there is actually a lot of common ground between our companies. Not only do we share many clients, supporting them in Asia and North America respectively, but the cultures of ICD and Convergint and our approaches to serving clients are also remarkably similar. Both ICD and Convergint share a strong commitment to delivering outstanding customer service, to executing project implementations to the highest possible standard, to delivering added value solutions and to hiring and developing the right people to support our customers.
For these reasons I am proud that ICD is now part of a company that shares our values and I am glad that ICD's employees now have even more resources and development opportunities available to them as part of a larger global organization. I look forward to working with Convergint's CEO Dan Moceri and the rest of the Convergint team to deliver truly global support to each of the companies that we provide services to!"
