The Chronicle Herald has an interesting story on Wilsons Security Systems, a subsidiary of Truro-based Wilsons Fuel (the home heating oil company that is well known as a sixth generation family business).  The story discusses that Wilsons have branched out into home and commercial security solutions, including several acquisitions over the last two years (the latest being Dartmouth’s AML Security late in 2012).

Sounds like a strong consolidation play and a natural fit for the core heating oil business.
