BOCA RATON, Fla.—ADT recently announced it has made an asset purchase agreement with Design Systems Group (DSG), a commercial fire and life safety systems provider headquartered in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Founded in 1999, DSG specializes in the design, installation and maintenance of sophisticated fire and life safety systems for some of the most recognizable commercial clients in North Texas. DSG will join forces with Red Hawk Fire & Security, which was acquired by ADT late in 2018.

“Bringing DSG on board is the latest example of the focus by ADT Commercial and Red Hawk to make meaningful investments in important geographic regions as we deliver unmatched customer service and support to enterprise-level organizations,” ADT Commercial Executive Vice President Dan Bresingham said in the announcement.

Michael McWilliams, SVP, Red Hawk Fire & Security, ADT Commercial, added: “DSG has earned the trust and praise of their commercial customers for excellence and professionalism in the life safety field and the DSG Team will be a force multiplier as we continue to increase our overall presence in the Dallas/Fort Worth region as the premier provider for all our customers’ fire, life safety and security needs.”

For over 20 years, DSG has been providing complete, quality solutions to commercial and industrial customers for their fire and life safety system needs. From design and installation to certification and system maintenance, DSG brings experience, understanding and commitment to every customer location.

“The entire team at DSG is enthusiastic about joining forces with these two leaders in the fire, life safety and systems integration industry as we work to best serve our new and existing commercial customers in and around the Dallas area,” DSG CEO Ovid Morphew said in the announcement.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
