Mobile surveillance company, Gatekeeper Systems Inc. announced its newly formed subsidiary, Gatekeeper Systems USA Inc., purchased certain operating assets of Wilmington, Del.-based Spector Logistics Inc., which positions it for expansion in the U.S. transit market. Spector Logistics’ Founder Robert (Bob) Welsh has joined Gatekeeper in a business development role.

The assets acquired include a production facility; a workforce with technical expertise that expands the company’s capability in the train market; and a command and control center in Wilmington designed to manage portable video installations for special events, crowd surveillance, and remote site-monitoring.

Gatekeeper USA also acquired Spector’s contracts with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), which are expected to generate approximately $1.33 million in revenue through the provision of video system maintenance and support services of mobile video equipment on 2,400 of SEPTA’s 2,800 transit buses, as well as to supply and install cameras, uninterruptable power supplies, and crashworthy hard drives on selected Philadelphia trains.

“Aligning with SEPTA provides an opportunity for additional revenue by way of a contract extension, as well as through the provision of additional video solutions and other services offered by Gatekeeper,” said Gatekeeper President/CEO Doug Dyment. “We feel fortunate to have acquired high quality and immediately accretive assets and are particularly excited to have Bob Welsh, with his extensive experience in the transit, law enforcement, and military markets, join our management team.”
