September 26, 2017 at 9:00 AM EDT

BOCA RATON, Fla., September 26, 2017ADT, the leader in security and automation solutions for homes and businesses in North America, today announced the completed purchase of MSE Corporate Security.

Headquartered in Branchburg, NJ and in business for 25 years, MSE is the nation’s 27th largest commercial security integrator, with most of its annual revenue coming from virtually every U.S. state.

“This important acquisition enhances expansion of our integrated solutions division across the country,” said ADT Chief Administrative Officer Dan Bresingham. “MSE’s highly talented team will add tremendous value, presenting a compelling growth opportunity for ADT.”

MSE employs about 75 team members, including techs, business development and project managers who work from several locations: Branchburg, NJ; Woodridge, IL; Goodyear, AZ; Sacramento, CA; Irvine, CA; New Haven, CT; Fredericksburg, VA; Rochester, NY; Albany, NY and Jupiter, Florida.

“We are a leader in intelligent and innovative networked physical security products, services and solutions,” said MSE President Mark Milam. “Joining ADT gives us a broader scale to continue delivering exceptional service and market-leading solutions to our customers.”

MSE will keep operating under its brand for the near future and Milam will continue leading MSE. He joins a growing list of previous owners/operators, dubbed the “Owner’s Club” who remain at ADT, post-acquisition, to help ensure high-touch personal service to customers.

The MSE transaction comes on the heels of ADT’s recent acquisition of Protec, part of an overall corporate strategy to strengthen ADT’s Commercial and National Account business in a highly fragmented market.
