July 10, 2014 -

Vipond Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of APi Group Inc., is pleased to welcome Atlantic Alarm & Sound Ltd., a Maritime, Canadian-based company that has grown steadily for 25 years into one of the major systems integrators in Atlantic Canada. The deal closed July 1.

"The acquisition of Atlantic Alarm enables Vipond to provide a full range of innovative solutions to its customers for fire protection, life safety and security system needs," said Mike Godara, vice president of Vipond.

"The strength of Vipond and Atlantic Alarm & Sound makes us the strongest integrator in the Atlantic Provinces," said Louis Bourgeois, founder of Atlantic Alarm. "This also allows us the support to grow as an integrator by sharing customer and product lines. Atlantic Alarm's strength in the security and communication is well recognized in the industry and also brings a strong bilingual support, which is important in our business."

According to Darrell Turple, a former Atlantic Alarm partner, Vipond's vast number of clients and products will only be a plus situation for this newly formed family.

"We have been at this business for over 25 years and this will hopefully frost the cake," said Charles LeBlanc, former Atlantic Alarm partner. "Our existing strength in this industry will only be heightened with your new group."

"I could see from the beginning that Vipond has a clear vision for future growth and success. They seem to value employees at every level of their organization, and I welcome the opportunity to work with such a capable, professional team," said Andree Drapeau, office manager.

Atlantic Alarm & Sound will continue to operate under its current business name and will be overseen by Mark Stevens, branch general manager of Ultra Alarm, a Vipond subsidiary.

Vipond welcomes Atlantic Alarm & Sound to the family of APi Group companies.
