Watts Acquires The Detection Group
Silicone Valley provider of wireless leak detection for commercial buildings, The Detection Group, expands the Watts offering of world-class water-related solutions.
Incorporating cutting-edge technology, its Trident™ Wireless water leak detection system allows for 24/7/365, real-time detection and notification of the precise location of water leaks in any size or age building—and is the gold standard for water leak detection.
The Detection Group (TDG), with headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, currently protects over 50 million square feet of floor space in well over four hundred commercial buildings across the United States. Its Trident™ system was the first, and is the only, wireless leak detection system to obtain coveted FM Approval. Equally important, the technology, reliability, and quality of the system is recognized by building managers, owners, and engineers as best-in-class in the industry.
“TDG addresses a key pain point for commercial and multi-family building owners, that being rising insurance costs due to water leaks,” said Robert J. Pagano, CEO of Watts. “TDG represents another offering to bundle into our company’s overall suite of Smart & Connected products, which continues to represent a larger share of our sales. We welcome the TDG team to Watts.”
Said Laurie Conner, president of TDG, “This partnership with Watts will allow The Detection Group to dramatically expand our leadership position in minimizing the risk of water damage. Watts offers world-class, water-related solutions. The addition of The Detection Group to their family of brands reinforces the Watts’ quest for expanding their offerings with another high-quality, technology-driven water solution.”
