OGDEN, Utah — Mountain Alarm, based here, has acquired Burgarello Alarm in Reno, Nev., for undisclosed terms. The deal marks Mountain Alarm’s fifth acquisition in the Intermountain West in the past 18 months, according to a press release.

Founded by Louie Burgarello in 1972, Burgarello Alarm is a full-service alarm integrator with more than 40 team members and over 7,000 monitored customers in Northern Nevada.

“After dedicating 48 years of my life to the life-safety industry it was a difficult decision to sell,” Burgarello shares. “Ultimately, I chose Mountain Alarm because I believe they will do the best job taking care of the Burgarello Alarm team and customers. I’m excited to see Mountain Alarm continue to grow the business in Northern Nevada.”

Eric Garner, president and CEO of Mountain Alarm, comments he has admired Burgarello Alarm for his entire career.

“They have a reputation in Northern Nevada as one of the premier alarm companies. I see a lot of similarities between Burgarello Alarm and Mountain Alarm; both businesses are family owned and operated, we both strive for same day service, and both teams have been empowered to treat each customer as if they are our only customer,” Garner continues. “Mountain Alarm will add a lot in the way of technology and systems to the Burgarello operations. These technology advancements will allow the Northern Nevada team to be hyper focused on taking care of customers and organic growth.”
