Boston Networks announced the acquisition of Fire and Security experts, Tough Security Systems.

With the acquisition of Tough Security Systems, and the absorption of its skilled staff and engineering base, Boston Networks will now offer a broader range of solutions to its clients including Public Space CCTV, Fire Safety Systems and Monitored Intruder Detection Systems. Such additions to Boston’s, already extensive portfolio will further facilitate its reputation as one of the leading suppliers of integrated security solutions, as well as enable them to achieve their mission of becoming Scotland’s Network & Security Systems Integrator.
