Sciens Building Solutions Buys California-Based Time and Alarm Systems

SAN FRANCISCO — Sciens Building Solutions announces it has acquired Mira Loma, Calif.-based Time and Alarm Systems to its family of fire-life safety & security companies.

With already-established locations in the San Francisco area, TAS increases Sciens’ presence in the state of California, allowing it to cover north and south portions of the state, according to the company.

This partnership is also said to allow TAS to offer its customers more resources and expertise, while leveraging Sciens North American growth.

“We chose to partner with Sciens to become part of a platform that can serve our customers locally, regionally and nationally. Combined with the global experience and capital support of Sciens, TAS can now invest to expand regionally and tap into the capabilities of the Sciens network to bring even more value to our customers,” says Keith Senn, president of Time and Alarm Systems. “Growth is something that has always been a top priority at TAS and we’re excited to grow together with Sciens as our new partner.”

Time and Alarm Systems was established in 1978 with the commitment to provide its customers with the most technologically advanced low voltage systems. TAS’s team of experts are skilled in the integration of fire, security and sound systems. It specializes in the SoCal K-12 school market, bringing decades-long school district relationships to Sciens.

“Now with over 1,000 Sciens employees across the country, we are excited to keep the fun Sciens journey going, providing outstanding customer service with the best employees in the industry,” says Terry Heath, Sciens’ CEO. “The TAS/Sciens partnership will provide even more opportunity for customers and employees alike. And we’re not slowing down anytime soon; you can be sure we will continue our focus to expand organically while pursuing more acquisitions like TAS throughout the United States.”
