Ottawa's Murray Electronics Inc. has been acquired by The Mircom Group of Companies.
Mircom stated the takeover, which took effect Aug. 31 but was announced Thursday, would "heighten" the group's brand in the Ottawa area.
"This move advances our growth strategy as a leading provider of fire, life safety and communications solutions in North America," stated Mark Falbo, executive vice-president of the group.
Current Murray Electronics president Rick Scrivens will remain on board as his company becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of Mircom as an engineering branch office.
Financial and personnel details were not disclosed in a press release.
Murray, which was founded in 1976, provides systems and products such as fire alarms, school intercoms, emergency lighting and uninterruptible power supplies.
Customers include several levels of government, the RCMP, school boards and detention institutions.
