This new tech platform will be rebranded as Allied Universal Technology Services, which will be headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
The Securadyne team will be joining Allied Universal under Allied Universal Technology Services.
Boethel will become President of the combined enterprises under the direction of Jones.

“During our acquisition integration planning, I have witnessed first-hand not only the strong culture fit, but also the compelling growth synergies that exist between our two organizations,” said Boethel – CEO of Securadyne.
“In addition to our systems integration platform, we are excited to now offer our clients a comprehensive approach to security to include security guarding, consulting and investigations, executive protection, alarm monitoring and a broad array remote technology services.”
