In January, Ralph W. Sevinor, president of TMA member company Wayne Alarm Systems, and Donald Martini, president, Lexington Alarm Systems, announced that their two companies will combine forces under the Wayne Alarm Systems umbrella to bring the highest-quality home and business security systems to local customers with improved technology and a broader service area.
“Wayne Alarm Systems is now in its 50th year of operations as a multigenerational, family-owned security systems company,” said Sevinor, a former president of TMA and current chair of the TMA Five Diamond Committee. “We have built a reputation for responsiveness and top-quality services, supported by state-of-the-art technology, to make our customers’ experience the best it can be. Acquiring one of Massachusetts’ premier security companies, Lexington Alarm Systems, will complement our company culture, and the combined customer base will give both companies an expanded service area. Lexington’s reputation for customer service excellence matches perfectly with our mission.”
Donald Martini stated: “Wayne Alarm Systems’ commitment to technology, and all the conveniences this brings to their business model and customers, will be an enormous new boost for us. The expanded service area of our new combined service force achieves one of Lexington’s long-term goals. It brings to fruition our concept of a multigenerational, family-owned, top-quality, local security systems company competing successfully with the giant, global corporations that offer compelling marketing, but lack the substance of on-site knowledge and community engagement.”
Wayne Alarm Systems and Lexington Alarm Systems, now combined, become the Boston area’s premier electronic security and life safety solutions provider. This new acquisition offers increased strength in all the emerging technologies and confirms our customer-centric service as second to none in Massachusetts. Wayne Alarm Systems will continue to offer excellent opportunities to all local customers to have the best in alarm security, right in their own hometowns. Lexington Alarm Systems will continue operations at its current location in Bedford, Massachusetts, under the direction of Mike Lordan, vice president of Lexington Alarm Systems. This merger creates immediate job opportunities at both locations.
While Wayne Alarm Systems is acquiring Lexington Alarm Systems in the corporate sense, this is operationally a merger of the best and brightest of the two companies.
