Huron Capital, a Detroit-based private equity firm, announced its building automation and energy services platform, Albireo Energy, has acquired Edison-based EMS Technologies, a provider of building automation and network integration solutions.

“We are excited to join Albireo’s extensive energy solutions and building automations network,” Glen Smith, CEO of EMS, who will remain at the company after the deal, said. “Combining our advanced building automation services with Albireo’s comprehensive energy solutions and dedicated capital is expected to help us continue to serve our existing customers, and fuel new opportunities moving forward.”

This is Albireo’s tenth acquisition as part of Huron’s ExecFactor initiative, which provides smart building automation and energy services to its customers. The deal will help strengthen Albireo’s customer base in the government sector and increase its data management capabilities.

“EMS’ robust building automation systems expertise is at the forefront of the industry, and we believe it will further strengthen Albireo,” Phil Rogers, CEO of Albireo Energy, said. “We are looking forward to combining our companies’ operational expertise and are proud to welcome EMS to the Albireo family.”
