IdentiSys acquires ACS and ACS East

Identification, Emergency Response, Security Solutions and On-site Service Provider expands into Pennsylvania tristate area.

IdentiSys Inc. announced today the acquisition of ACS and ACS East, both full-service identification and card based solutions dealers.

Since 1999, ACS has been providing clients with photo identification, security authentication and credential management solutions along with first class on-site and remote services.  ACS East has been in business for over 8 years offering the same products, solutions and services as ACS. Both companies have an impressive history of working closely with customers across all markets including corporate, education, government, casinos, healthcare, construction and more.  ACS and ACS East currently have customers across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, West Virginia, New Jersey and Delaware. Their philosophy of serving clients is a close match to the IdentiSys philosophy and ACS and ACS East employees will transition over to IdentiSys.  

“Adding ACS and ACS East to the IdentiSys business portfolio and building on their solid record of success is exciting,” said Michael R. Shields II, president and CEO of IdentiSys. “We welcome the addition of their outstanding staff to our organization and, together, we will provide our customers with the IdentiSys sales and service experience we proudly deliver throughout the rest of our corporate footprint.”

“IdentiSys is always looking at expanding our local sales and service coverage throughout the U.S.  The opportunity to add the ACS and ACS East customers and staff to our base works well with our strategy of continuous growth and expansion of the areas we cover.  The purchase of ACS and ACSE are our 13th and 14th dealer acquisitions and we are extremely proud to have local sales and service covering the majority of the United States,” stated Shields.
