ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Doyle Security Systems, Inc., recently announced the acquisition of the security division of DFT Communications (Dunkirk & Fredonia Telephone Company), a family-owned company founded in Fredonia, N.Y., in the 1890s.

DFT’s 2,100 security accounts (55% of which are commercial, 45% residential) will now be monitored by Doyle Security’s emergency response center, while service and installation work will continue to be provided by DFT Security employees who will be joining the Doyle team, the announcement says.

Along with the acquired accounts, Doyle Security will be retaining DFT Security’s Fredonia, N.Y., office and seven employees. Fredonia will become the 10th Doyle branch, joining Buffalo, Olean, Syracuse, Watertown, Albany, Fishkill and Catskill, N.Y.; Erie, Pa, and the corporate headquarters in Rochester, N.Y.

Why Doyle Security Wanted DFT

“DFT has earned an incredible reputation in the security and life safety industry, and we couldn’t be prouder to be merging with their security division,” says Doyle Security president and chief executive officer Jack Doyle in the announcement. “Our mutual passion for customer service and our alignment on values really makes this an excellent fit for us.”

DFT Communications shares many common traits with Doyle Security, including being a family-owned company for more than 100 years. DFT will retain their internet and phone services, staff and accounts, the announcement says.
