Dynamark Buys Buckeye Protective to Expand Central Station Footprint

Dynamark Security Centers offer Five Diamond-certified monitoring services and more to independent alarm dealers.

Hagerstown, Md. — Dynamark Security Centers has purchased Ohio-based Buckeye Protective Services and added it to the Dynamark Security group of central stations. The acquisition will allow Dynamark to expand its central station footprint and offer its national base of dealers and partners a redundant facility.

“We are excited to join forces,” says Trey Alter, president and CEO of Dynamark. “Dynamark and Buckeye have been friendly competitors in Ohio for a number of years and our mutual respect for each another led to our initial conversations.”

Keith Godsey, senior vice president of central station operations explains how the next year will transpire for both companies: “During the next 12 months, Dynamark will work collectively with Buckeye’s senior staff to integrate both of our monitoring centers to provide redundancy, load-sharing capabilities and an entire menu of services Dynamark already has available to its dealers. During this time, we will be making investments and upgrades to hardware, receivers, software and much more at Buckeye. We expect all of these investments to have a very positive impact on our customers as we increase our services and support for our dealers and partners.”

According to Dynamark, a Monitoring Association Five Diamond-certified central station, one of the added benefits to the more than 100 Buckeye dealers will be on-demand sales training and business development.

“Over the last four years, we have been developing award-winning marketing services, as well as on-demand sales training that is offered to all of our dealers and partners at little or no cost to them. Now Buckeye dealers will have access to that same benefit,” says Vice President of Sales and Business Hank. “Dealers are begging for coaching and advice on how to grow their business, but most central station companies provide little more than monitoring services. We are different. We genuinely want our customers to succeed, so we go the extra mile to help them.”

Founded in 1975, Dynamark Security Centers supports independent alarm dealers with comprehensive monitoring services as well as account purchases, financial loan programs, and sales and marketing training.
