SecurTek Acquires Customer Accounts from Intercept Security
May 10, 2012 - SecurTek Monitoring Solutions Inc. Today announced it is investing approximately $2.0 million to acquire the customer accounts of Intercept Security, a security monitoring provider that has been serving Alberta homes, families, and businesses for more than 20 years.
“This latest acquisition is an important move in consolidating SecurTek’s market reach,” Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. “We have been providing wholesale monitoring services to Intercept for some time. Taking over their monitored security accounts was a natural next step and we are always looking for these kind of solid acquisitions to keep SecurTek growing strong.”
The new accounts will be serviced by SecurTek Authorized Dealers including Guardian Security, One Stop Security and Diginex Solutions in Calgary and Authority Alarms in Edmonton.
“Gaining these Alberta accounts will help SecurTek remain competitive and profitable while bringing customers in Saskatchewan and elsewhere the excellent security monitoring they have come to expect from us,” added Styles.
