KALAMAZOO –– Building services and systems integration firm Knight Watch Inc. has acquired a similar Hudsonville-based company.
The Kalamazoo-based Knight Watch announced on Wednesday it acquired Vertex Integration LLC in a deal that aims to bolster Knight Watch’s building automation presence in the state, according to a statement.
