Alarm.com (Nasdaq: ALRM) has announced the acquisition of EBS in a move aimed at extending the company’s serving arm for international markets. A Poland-based specialist in the design and manufacturing of smart communicators, EBS was founded over 30 years ago and has built a reputation for its manufacturing of smart communicators, according to a press release.
EBS devices are widely distributed in international markets and, according to Alarm.com in a press release, complement the company’s software solutions.
“By leveraging the strengths of both EBS and Alarm.com, we are confident in our ability to deliver superior security solutions, support our service providers, and build on our competitive edge in the global market, all while collaborating with the experienced and knowledgeable teams at EBS,” said Aydin Bolkar, Vice President of International Operations at Alarm.com.
A Look Behind the Alarm.com EBS Acquisition
As part of the Alarm.com family, EBS will gain access to a global network, research, and a portfolio of smart home and business security solutions.
EBS’ solutions cater to a diverse range of clients, from households and small businesses to national security agencies and government institutions, according to the company.
Integrating with EBS smart communicators will expand Alarm.com’s support for legacy security control panels that are widely deployed in international markets, providing its service providers with a cost-effective solution for efficiently deploying Alarm.com’s advanced connected property solutions.
“This merger promises numerous benefits and we are confident that it will substantially enhance our capacity to serve our customers even better,” said Krzysztof Stalewski, CEO at EBS.
EBS will continue to operate independently and the current management team at EBS will lead the business from its headquarters in Warsaw, Poland, and maintain a manufacturing facility in Elk, Poland.
