Sciens Building Solutions Acquires Electronic Security Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO — Sciens Building Solutions announces it has added Plymouth Meeting, Pa.-based Electronic Security Solutions (ESS) to its growing portfolio of companies.

The acquisition is said to help Sciens establish its presence in the Pennsylvania market, while providing ESS and its customers with even deeper resources and expertise, as well as the ability to leverage Sciens’ growing presence across North America.

“Sciens’ and its affiliated companies’ solid technical expertise and comprehensive building solutions, combined with ESS’s capabilities, empowers us to develop more comprehensive offerings for the important Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware markets,” says John Mitchell, president of Electronic Security Solutions. “We are excited to grow together under the Sciens platform and look forward to continuing to provide excellent customer service to our valuable current and prospective clients, as well as our talented employees.”

The addition of ESS, which was founded in 1999, will allow Sciens to form a presence in the tri-state area.

“We proudly maintain Sciens’ fun, growth-focused journey, which continues with the addition of ESS and its excellent reputation throughout the tri-state region as a customer-first fire and security leader,” says Terry Heath, Sciens’ CEO. “We welcome the entire ESS team, which has an impressive track record of establishing long-term relationships with this area’s customers and are excited to further expand our presence in the northeast corridor and throughout the country. We continue to actively seek partnerships with companies similar to ESS that align with the Sciens values and superior service offerings.”

The acquisition marks the third for Sciens within the last month following its purchase of New York-based West Fire Systems on March 16 and Florida-based LV Solutions a couple weeks later.
