International home automation company Nice S.p.A. acquires HySecurity Gate



Everything Changes . . .
Gate operator manufacturer HySecurity Gate, Inc. announced today that it has been acquired by one of the world’s largest and most successful residential and solar gate operator and accessory manufacturers, Nice S.p.A. [Milan stock exchange].

“HySecurity is one of the fastest growing gate operator companies in the United States,” says Brian DeNault, HySecurity CEO. “Yet I saw that HySecurity would greatly benefit with a partner whose global reach and formidable size allows us to increase our product lines and market reach. I found that partner in one of the most successful international gate operator and home automation companies, Nice S.p.A.”

DeNault’s partner search was empowered by his commitment to HySecurity customers. “We’ve grown through product innovation AND by paying attention to the business needs of installers and distributors,” says DeNault. “That means a perfect partner must be reliable, accessible, and a company that builds long lasting, durable, and profitable relationships. I’m happy to say that Nice S.p.A. shows the same high level of customer-centricity HySecurity strives to achieve.”

“The Nice group couldn’t have found a more strategically important U.S. partner than HySecurity” - stated Lauro Buoro, Chairman of Nice S.p.A. “HySecurity has grown an enviable, safety-first, highest quality and reliability brand.
This acquisition gives a boost to our commitment to product design and technology innovation, engineering synergies, increased sales growth and continuous improvement of accessible and professional customer service. Nice home and building automation meets HySecurity”.

“Today we celebrate an important milestone in our industry,” says Davide Pesca, Nice USA CEO. “Our customers and employees will largely benefit from the cooperation and partnership of the two companies moving forward as one. I want to express my gratitude to Brian DeNault, HySecurity CEO and Lauro Buoro, Nice SpA Chairman, for their leadership and vision which made all of this possible."

And Everything Stays the Same
The new, combined U.S. entity maintains product innovation and customer centricity under the continuing leadership of HySecurity CEO, Brian DeNault and Nice USA Davide Pesca.
“However, product is very important,” says DeNault. “The deeper and broader our product lines, the better we serve our customers.” HySecurity’s merger with Nice USA fills an important missing piece of HySecurity product. Nice USA complements HySecurity products with highly successful residential, rural and solar-ready linear actuators and commercial gate operators. Installers know many of those operators under their former Apollo name.

Expect More, Better!
“I spent the better part of my life building HySecurity from a niche, industrial player to an impressive competitor in commercial, industrial, parking and anti-terrorist markets,” says DeNault. “I couldn’t be prouder of the team of highly committed professionals who accomplished this with me. It’s been a roller coaster ride full of thrills, disappointments, and incredible successes.

“Count on HySecurity to continue to build on that foundation. I’m not done. HySecurity and Nice USA will be a great marriage. Our biggest successes lie ahead of us. On that you can rely.”
